BIOMED invests in high quality fundamental research and combines this with translational programs that aim to develop an application that is of benefit for the specific patient and the health sector in general. Hereto, research is oriented along the axis “from bench to bedside and back” and focuses on the three main disease areas: (neuro)immunology, neuroscience and cardiovascular disease.
While the chosen disease areas each have their domain specific research questions, we strive to identify and invest in common research themes in line with the common working model depicted in the figure below
More in detail, we aim to:
- Identify risk factors throughout life that predispose people to develop disease
- Get better insights in disease mechanisms
- Best monitor disease activity
- Devise strategies to manage, treat or even prevent disease
