Medical Delta

Medical Delta is the medical-technological consortium of the three universities, the Erasmus MC, and the Leiden University Medical Centre, as well as public-sector bodies and businesses. Areas of focus are:

  • Healthy ageing
  • Early diagnosis and treatment through new imaging techniques
  • Minimally invasive surgery, short hospital stay and fast recovery stay
  • Personalised medicine through new molecular knowledge & technology.

In June 2014 the Dutch academic world experienced an unique event: eleven Medical Delta Professors held an inaugural address marathon. Their dual appointments at two of the three universities create a bridge between the fields of medicine (Leiden and Rotterdam) and technology (Delft). in June 2016 another twelve Medical Delta Professors received a double appointment.
