Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences (DTL)

November, 2011

November 22, at Life Sciences Momentum, six top expertise centres together presented the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences (DTL). DTL is their answer to the rapidly growing need for high-end technologies in biomedical and biotechnical research. Mission of DTL is to give Dutch investigators in academia and industry access to up-to-date and high level expertise and equipment in the fields of next generation sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics, microscopy and data integration and stewardship.

DTL builds on centres of excellence, several of which have been established under the umbrella of the Netherlands Genomics Initiative (NGI). These are:

  • Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC)
  • Netherlands Consortium of Systems Biology (NCSB)
  • Netherlands Metabolomics Centre (NMC)
  • Netherlands Proteomics Centre (NPC)
  • Centre for Genome Diagnostics (CGD)
  • Netherlands Society for Advanced Light Microscopy

Ruben Kok, managing director of the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC), explains:

" No single research group, institute, university, or company will be able to maintain all key big life science technologies at a sufficiently high level. To secure the frontline position of Dutch R&D a new approach is needed to make these technologies available in a more efficient and cost-effective way. DTL offers dedicated technology expertise and collaborative research facilities that are coordinated at the national and international level".


High-quality proteomics research
