Research Strategy


The UMCG has formulated a strategy for scientific research for the period 2017-2020. Within the overarching theme of Healthy Ageing, research within the UMCG is built on three pillars:

  • Mechanisms of diseases;
  • Prevention;
  • Innovative diagnostics and treatments.

Besides a discussion of these three research priorities, the research strategy gives you more insight in what the UMCG wants to achieve with regard to a wide range of research related issues such as research infrastructures, quality and safety aspects, outreach and financial considerations.

For the research strategy, see: Research Strategy University Medical Centre 2017-2020 (ENG) and Onderzoeksstrategie 2017-2020 (NL, short version) on the UMCG intranet (only accessible  for UMCG employees).​
