Molecular imaging is the hallmark of nuclear medicine. As such it is closely linked to laboratory medicine and drug development. By its nature, nuclear medicine can play the role of a bridge between the laboratory and the clinic. And it can play an important role in the development of new drugs.
The facilities of the Department of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging are GMP licensed, and the staff is GCP trained. Moreover, the Department is part of the largest hospital in the Netherlands, allowing easy access to patients. Finally, the Department has a good co-operation with CRO’s in the vicinity, which have access to a large healthy volunteer population.
The Department has developed strategies to give commercial companies preferential access to their equipment, without hampering patient access.
In the past a number of firms have had studies performed at our premises.
