Erasmus MC, University Medical Center is the Netherlands' largest academic medical center. As such it is able to provide special opportunities for education, research, and patient care in the Netherlands.
Erasmus MC is an innovative center for high-quality knowledge development, training, and care in the fields of illness and health. The Medical Genetics Cluster offers high quality research in the area of molecular mechanisms that regulate development, differentiation and disease. The research program is organised around a number of themes: the regulation of transcription in development, hematopoietic stem cells and differentiation, epigenetics and chromatin remodeling and the role of the cytoskeleton. Modern technology such as advanced genomics, proteomics, bio-informatics and imaging supported by experts underpin the research.

The new Erasmus Stem Cell Institute has opened in 2008 and will cover many aspects of stem cell research, including embryonic and adult type stem cells.
