Healthcare is the responsibility of many societal and academic stakeholders. In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Healthcare, Welfare and Sports and other partners, we are working towards a learning healthcare system.
We gratefully acknowledge that the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport provides us with a substantial budget to finance a large part of our research infrastructure.
The Ministry is also involved in our activities for affordable healthcare and the introduction of new therapies into the Dutch healthcare system, such as:
- Precision medicine
- Cell-based therapies
- New diagnostic tools, e.g. liquid biopsies, whole genome sequencing, and, earlier, the microarray-based MammaPrint.
