Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences
At the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML), everything revolves around healthy living. Our research and education are not solely focused on recovery, but place a strong emphasis on prevention, health preservation, and health promotion. Our aim is to use our knowledge and expertise to genuinely contribute to the well-being of individual people as well as society in total.
In, research, and healthcare, FHML is closely collaborating with the academic hospital in Maastricht, together forming the Maastricht University Medical Center (MUMC+). FHML is strongly connected in education, research, and care with the Maastricht academic hospital, together with which it forms the Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+).
FHML, which is the largest faculty of Maastricht University, is formed by an (inter)national community of employees and students. The faculty offers a wide range of Dutch and English-taught bachelor's
and master's programs in innovative educational concepts in which the emphasis is always on building bridges to practice.
The multidisciplinary research of the FHML focuses on a number of carefully chosen topical current themes. In addition to research aimed at gaining new insights, it also concerns research whose results can be directly translated into concrete applications and innovations. The implementation of the various research programs is organized in our six graduate schools and two institutes.NUTRIM - Institute of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism
NUTRIM aims to contribute to health maintenance and personalized medicine by unraveling lifestyle and disease-induced derangements in metabolism and by This is facilitated by a state of the art research infrastructure and close interaction between scientists, clinicians, master, and PhD students. https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/research/school-nutrition-and-translationalresearch-metabolismDepartment of Bioinformatics-BiGCaT
The Department of Bioinformatics has an international and interdisciplinary team working on integrative systems biology in close collaboration with other scientists and institutions worldwide. Founded in 2001, the research group is part of the NUTRIM Institute of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences at Maastricht University. NUTRIOME Doctoral NetworkNUTRIOME - Precision nutrition and postprandial immune responses
is a MSCA Doctoral Network
. The NUTRIOME network involves academic partners at nine European academic institutions and six associated partners from industry across Norway, Poland, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. The purpose of the NUTRIOME network is to train 10 RDCs in data-driven precision nutrition through human intervention studies, omics-technologies and advanced data analyses, in order to evaluate personal responses to foods and diets.
