Human Health and Life Sciences

How can we promote health and well-being, paying attention to the whole person in his social environment? In the profile theme Human Health and Life Sciences, VU students and academics study the health and welfare of people, including its organisation and financing.

Being healthy and staying healthy is a great thing. However, many people in our society struggle to exhibit healthy behaviours and this affects our society and the economy. Good health and healthcare are important. Most health problems are complex and require a well-considered, multidimensional approach. Prevention with a modified lifestyle, diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation all play a role in this.

Mission profile theme Human Health and Life Sciences
We want to promote physical and mental health through interdisciplinary research into and education about health and healthcare. We focus on a healthy lifestyle, the prevention of health problems and as favourable a course as possible for pre-existing diseases and disorders. The whole person and his or her social life at home, school and work are at the heart of this. We also focus on improving prevention, diagnosis and treatment using biophysical, molecular biological and digital technologies.
