The Netherlands

The Radboud university medical center (Radboudumc) is the Coordinator of the PROTID project and responsible for project management, capacity development and training, stakeholder engagement and dissemination. The project management team is located in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

The Radboudumc specializes in patient care, scientific research, teaching and training in Nijmegen. Everything we do is centered around people and their quality of life. Our mission is to have a significant impact on health care. We aim to be pioneers in shaping the health care of the future.

The mission of the theme Infectious diseases and global health is to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of patients with infections using fundamental, translational, epidemiological, and health systems‐based investigative approaches. The theme aims to remain at the forefront of international research and research training.

Key attributes of the theme’s ambition are integration of ‘omics’ data, translational research in immunology and infectious diseases, and implementation research at population level. All our researchers aim to have a significant and global impact on the control, treatment, and elimination of infectious diseases through several complementary strategies: (i) basic research intended to understand biological mechanisms and to identify novel targets for diagnostic tests and therapy; (ii) translational research aimed at interrogating relevant biological processes in patients; (iii) epidemiological and health systems research designed to study infections and global health at a population level.
