Life science is an important research focus of the research institutes of the Science Faculty of Leiden University and at the LUMC. Such as the Centre of Human Drug Research (CHDR) and the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research (LACDR).
Please find more information on current drug development at Leiden University and the LUMC at the research dossiers Effective drug development, Immunity, Infection and Tolerance and Vascular and Regenerative Medicine.
Leiden Bio Science Park, Leiden University and the LUMC are part of the regional life science and health consortium Medical Delta. Medical Delta combines the strenght of medical R&D of Leiden, Delft (Technical University) and Rotteram (Erasmus University and Erasmus Medical Center). Find out more of the combined Medical Delta research programs.
State-of-the-art research facilities are available to facilitate research, also as shared facilities. Please find them lower at this page.
