Department

NUTRIM - School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism

NUTRIM School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism initiates and catalyzes translational research into nutritional health benefits and risks focusing on metabolic and chronic inflammatory diseases. Through its research master and PhD program NUTRIM aims to educate scientists of high academic excellence and ambassadors to support and develop the field of nutrition, metabolism and toxicology within and outside the Netherlands. Sixteen biomedical, clinical, and behavioural-science departments are incorporated within NUTRIM

CAPHRI - Care and Public Health Research Institute

The aim of CAPHRI is to create a healthy society for everyone. We are doing this by providing high quality research to improve the individual quality of life and innovate healthcare and public health. Building a bridge between our research and society has our highest priority.

Department of Medical Microbiology

Microorganisms continuously confront mankind with unprecedented challenges. Novel or altered microorganisms can cause epidemics or even pandemics, whereas exposure to antimicrobial drugs fuels the development of antimicrobial resistance among microorganisms. 

Early detection of pathogens, their transmission dynamics and antimicrobial susceptibility as well as the importance of host-microbial interactions are key research themes. Driven by technical innovations and close interactions with clinical departments and the municipal health service, research within the Department of Microbiology spans the entire spectrum of fundamental to applied research. The research is divided in 4 themes that are embedded in the School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism (NUTRIM) and the Care and Public Health Research Institute (CAPHRI).
