The Kolff program aims to support talented postdoctoral / physician-researchers in the field of Nephrology. This prestigious Kolff grant allows Rutger to perform a three-year research project into the topic of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome, a group of rare kidney diseases.

Customised treatment for patients with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome
Rutger Maas, department of Nephrology, will use his grant  to develop improved methods to predict therapeutic efficacy of immunosuppressive drugs in patient with the idiopathic nephrotic syndrome.
Immunosuppressive treatment including high-dose prednisone is currently the only effective treatment for these diseases. However, responses are highly variable and the drugs often cause serious side-effects. The project aims to accurately predict treatment response at an earlier stage in the disease, thereby enabling personalized treatment.

The award of the grant to the Radboudumc underlines the strength of the Renal Disorders theme in Nijmegen.
