Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC) is a Dutch university medical centre for research, education and patient care with a high-quality profile and a strong scientific orientation. It has a unique research practice, ranging from pure fundamental medical research to applied clinical research. Researchers at LUMC work together around 7 medical research profiles: Vascular and Regenerative Medicine; Immunity, Infection and Tolerance; Translational Neuroscience; Cancer Pathogenesis and Therapy; Ageing; Innovation in Health Strategy and Quality of Care; and Biomedical Imaging.

Within AutoCRAT, LUMC will work on a number of different aspects of the Project, including discovery and validation of novel regenerative cell therapeutics (which LUMC will lead) and testing, and validation of AutoCRAT therapeutics for OA.
