Biomedical research centers

The BioPartner incubator is connected via an air bridge to the Maastricht University Medical Center.

The hospital’s top clinical and top referral care are carefully synchronised with the fundamental research of Maastricht University’s Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, as well as with experimental and other clinical research. The following biomedical research centres are located at the campus:


With an annual budget of approximately 20 million Euros, CARIM is one of the largest cardiovascular research institutes in Europe, producing more than 500 scientific articles, about 8 patents and approximately 30 PhD dissertations per year. www.carimmaastricht.nl


The School for Nutrition, Toxicology and Metabolism (NUTRIM) initiates and catalyses translational research into nutritional health benefits and risks focussing on metabolic and chronic inflammatory diseases. www.nutrim.unimaas.nl


GROW aims to carry out high quality scientific research in the field of early human development (normal and abnormal growth and differentiation) and in the field of oncology (abnormal growth and differentiation). www.grow-um.nl


CAPHRI focuses on interventions in the chain of care, starting with prevention and primary care, and ending with aftercare and rehabilitation. The aim of the research is to get insight into the effectiveness of interventions, and their adequacy in meeting prospective patients’ needs with a focus on chronic diseases. www.caphri.nl
