The mission programme Renal Disorders aims to deliver excellent, efficient and innovative clinical care to patients, and to be leading in the field of kidney disease research.
- We will increase knowledge of the molecular and immunological basis of glomerular and tubular disorders and of graft performance.
- We will combine genetic and functional cutting-edge methodology to diagnose and identify novel renal diseases.
- We will identify novel therapeutic targets for renal disorders and kidney transplant survival.
- We aim to develop biomarkers for optimal diagnosis, prevention and prognosis of renal diseases, kidney injury and transplant survival.
- We aim to optimize treatment strategies for patients with renal diseases, focusing on patient-tailored treatment.
- We will apply strategies for preventing and improving renal replacement therapy.
The programme is led by research groups from Radboudumc, Radboud University, Wageningen University and Research, TNO, and University of Twente.
