Genetics and Cell Biology

Genetics and Cell Biology is the home of basic, clinical and diagnostic research spanning from the molecular, cellular and organ level to individuals, families and the population. We aim at improvements in diagnosis, prevention and treatment of various pathologies with a focus on the healthy living aspects.

Genetics and Cell Biology contributes to research activities of four out of five FHML research schools and aims to meet the recommendations of the ‘Gezond Leven’ strategic research report with a strong visible focus on health and prevention. The combination of genetic and cell biological approaches allows for synergy in functional understanding of genetic variations and rapid application of new knowledge into clinical practice.
