Utrecht University has invested in four different Life Science hubs: the Utrecht Exposome Hub, the Utrecht Platform for Organoid Technology, the Utrecht Molecular Immunology Hub and the Utrecht Advanced In Vitro Models Hub.
What role do bioinformaticians play in the ULS hubs?
These hubs bring together excellent researchers from different disciplines to work on on societal problems and scientific challenges. Bioinformatics and research groups affiliated with the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center also play an important role in these hubs, as they actively participate in the Exposome Hub and Molecular Immunology Hub. In addition, bioinformatics expertise and tooling are also in high demand to take advantage of the predictive capabilities of organoids in clinical care.
