Contribute to human and animal health
More than 41 million people worldwide die every year from diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses. The same chronic diseases also affect pets. This is why veterinary researchers from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine increasingly work together with doctoral researchers from, for example, UMC Utrecht. Research into the same chronic diseases in humans and animals is known as One Medicine and leads to better diagnostics and treatment for both. With the establishment of UTOMIC, the Utrecht Translational One Medicine Innovation Centre with state-of-the-art research facilities, we are now taking this research to an even higher level.
