Radboud University Medical Center

Stichting Katholieke Universiteit (Radboud University Medical Center)

The Radboud university medical center (RUMC) strives to have ‘a significant impact on healthcare’. Key strengths are to combine patient care, research and education to develop and improve innovative, sustainable, and affordable healthcare, and the well recognised Nijmegen Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, with an impressive infrastructure for medical life-sciences. Expertise in biomedical, translational and clinical research of the departments Haematology, Laboratory of Haematology, and Tumor Immunology (which is a world leading research group in the field of cancer immunology) are combined in the MDS-RIGHT project. The Department of Haematology has a long-standing research tradition in MDS, and is a Centre of Excellence of the International MDS Foundation. It has a large clinical Trial Coordination and Data Centre, which has managed and facilitated national and international clinical studies and projects, including the EUMDS registry established in 2007.
