Academisch Medisch Centrum
The Academic Medical Center (AMC) houses the university hospital and the medical faculty of the University of Amsterdam, as well as several research institutes. A number of biotech companies – partly AMC spin-offs – are also located on the premises. This concentration of expertise provides a breeding ground for fruitful scientific collaboration. Infectious Diseases represents one of the major topics of clinical, applied and basic research at the AMC, integrated in a multidisciplinary fashion at the Center for Infection and Immunity AMC (CINIMA).
Research at the Department of Medical Microbiology broadly covers bacteriology – in particular bacterial meningitis and novel antimicrobial strategies, virology – in particular HIV, influenza, coronaviruses and virus discovery -, and parasitology – in particular malaria and leishmaniasis.http://www.amc.nl
