How we support you

We support UMCG researchers and external researchers.

As a UMCG researcher:

  • Are you working on a novel biomarker assay that could be promoted?
  • Have you been contacted by an industrial partner for a biomarker validation study and you don’t know how to start with a proposal?

If your answer is YES to any of these questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact. If you are not sure, get in contact anyway and we can advise you.

As an external company:
