Researchers at the UMCG are involved in fundamental, clinical, and translational research. The UMCG has organised all its research in five Research Institutes that each have developed Research Programmes around specific aims and objectives. Research at the UMCG is dynamic and innovative and has its main focus on Healthy Ageing. The five Research Institutes collaborate in the Graduate School of Medical Sciences to educate students for future scientific leadership. Students graduate at MSc and PhD levels.
The Dean of Research, Prof. E. Boddeke, and the Research Office are responsible for the initiation, preparation and implementation of the research policy.
