Translational research

Research topic

The patient and his or her disease form the starting point for most research themes and approaches in the UMC Utrecht Brain Center. Translational Research, however, uses model systems to resolve questions that –as yet– cannot be answered in humans. This opens up a wide range of possibilities. Humanized genetic animal models are used to examine the onset of disease characteristics under highly controlled environmental circumstances.
