The Imaging Center will provide excellent opportunities for cooperation with industry in research into both fundamental science and applied technology.

Natural partner for pharma and biotech.

The Imaging Center will be particularly suited to supporting the pharmaceutical industry’s requirements for imaging technologies in their efforts to design, test and select novel therapies more effectively and at lower cost than in the past. The unique and expert range of capabilities offered by our research groups and commercial partners makes the Imaging Center a natural choice for pharma, and a host of research contracts proves the point.  As well as hosting the headquarters of EATRIS (European Advanced Translational Infrastructure in Medicine), VUmc will become leading imaging expertise center within EATRIS, an EU initiative to improve Europe’s competitiveness in drug development, which provides access to cutting edge translational infrastructure across the  continent.
