About Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences

The Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) main aim is to achieve a greater understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease. By integrating fundamental and clinical research, we obtain multifaceted knowledge of (patho)physiological processes. We aim to improve clinical practice and public health by:

  • generating basic knowledge in the molecular medical science
  • translating our gained knowledge into clinical applications, and into diagnostic, therapeutic and personalized treatment strategies
  • training and exposing researchers of all levels to societal-relevant multidisciplinary research questions along the theme of understanding the molecular basis of disease.

The RIMLS accommodates research groups from the Radboudumc and Radboud University’s Faculty of Science. RIMLS aims to advance innovation in translational research, based on integrating diverse areas of scientific expertise within the molecular and medical sciences. In line with the Radboudumc's strategic vision to have a significant impact on healthcare, research is bundled into disease-oriented research themes from molecule-to-man in which we collaborate with the Radboud Institute for Health Sciences.

More information about the institute and its themes is available on our website.

Hypatia Tenure Track Grant

A significant impact on healthcare is at the core of Radboudumc. It is, of course, far from the only institution seeking to achieve this. What sets Radboudumc apart is its level of commitment to selecting the best people and supporting them in order to achieve its vision. To demonstrate this, the medical center awards the prestigious one million Euros Hypatia Tenure Track Grant, to attract the most talented scientists.
