Mission GROW focuses on research and teaching of (epi)genetic and cellular concepts, as well as (micro)environmental factors underlying normal and abnormal development. As such the basic mechanisms of embryogenesis and fetal growth, as well as those governing the process of carcinogenesis are subject of study within GROW. With a strong emphasis on translational research, scientists and clinicians within GROW aim at implementing this basic knowledge into innovative approaches for individualizing prevention, patient diagnostics and treatment of cancer at the one hand, and hereditary disorders on the other. The total number of scientific and support staff participating within GROW exceeds 200 fte, including 100 PhD students. Implementing fundamental research into patient care is an essential goal at GROW. This is the foundation on which our School for Oncology & Developmental Biology is built.
Addition GROW - School for Oncology and Developmental Biology is recognized officially as a Research School on normal and abnormal growth by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in June 2006. GROW is embedded in the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences of Maastricht University Medical Center+.
