The scientific research carried out at the VU University Medical Center is closely linked to issues that are important both for the hospital itself and for society in general. The aim of research is to expand knowledge (fundamental research) and to apply this knowledge to the health service (strategic and applied research).
The medical-scientific research points the way for the hospital’s tertiary clinical care and tertiary referral-centre care function. The research is based on a number of pivotal points which are embodied by five multidisciplinary research institutes.
