Renal disorders

Renal disorders


Theme leader: Joost Hoenderop
The present and future care of patients with renal and renal-related disorders can be highly improved. To achieve this we aim:

  • to increase knowledge on the molecular and immunological basis of rare glomerular and tubular disorders;
  • to develop biomarkers for optimal prediction of prognosis;
  • to apply strategies for the prevention and improvement of renal replacement therapy.
