Graduate School

School for Oncology and Developmental Biology

The School for Oncology & Developmental Biology (GROW) focuses on research and teaching of genetic and cellular mechanisms, as well as environmental and life-style factors that underlie normal (embryonic and fetal) and abnormal (cancer) development. The emphasis is on basic and translational research, aiming at innovative approaches for individualizing prevention, patient diagnosis, and treatment for genetically determined diseases and cancer.

Research

GROW research activities in the areas of oncology and developmental medicine are closely interrelated, revolving around the same basic concepts and research techniques. Scientists at GROW collaborate intensively with clinicians at the Maastricht Oncology Centre and the Centre for Genetics, Reproduction and Child Health.

Education

An important aim within GROW is training master's and PhD students in the fields of modern medicine and molecular life sciences.
