RIMLS-Science is a leading interfaculty research institute of the Faculty of Science and the Radboud University Medical Centre. RIMLS-Science performs fundamental and applied research in medical biology and molecular life sciences as well as contributes to teaching activities at Radboud University.
Decipher molecular mechanisms of disease
The overarching aim of RIMLS-Science is to decipher molecular mechanisms of disease. This fundamental and applied research in medical biology and molecular life sciences has clear links to biochemical research performed at the Institute for Molecules and Materials and other institutes of the Faculty of Science as well as to more clinically oriented research programmes at several departments within the Radboud University medical centre (Radboudumc).
The central research theme is regulation of gene expression during development and in health and disease, with special focus on research areas in epigenetics, stem-cell and developmental biology, and computational biology.
Our departments are very internationally oriented, with several nationalities represented in the departments, and there is extensive collaboration and networking with international partners, often in projects funded by the EC and/or NIH.
RIMLS-Science consists of 4 research departments, led by the following department heads:
