Institute presentation

With over a 1,000 beds and more than 10,000 employees the University Medical Center Utrecht is one of the largest academic centers in the Netherlands.  In co-operation with regional, national and international partners, we work on solutions for major medical problems and have dedicated ourselves to accessible acute care, second opinion and select, highly specialised functions. Due to the closely linkage between patient care and biomedical research an environment is created where scientific advancements quickly move from bench to bedside. The research at the Department of Orthopaedics (http://www.umcutrecht.nl/subsite/orthopaedics/) is characterised by a so-called “dual translational approach”, where clinical problems are translated towards basic research questions and vice versa. This group is regarded a leading expert in biofabrication, in vitro and in vivo models for the clincal translation of cartilage and bone regenerative approaches, as well as in coordinating and performing clinical trials.
