Jeroen de Baaij assistant professor

Jeroen de Baaij (1987) is a physiologist interested in the molecular and genetic origin of renal electrolyte disorders, including hypomagnesemia. He obtained his Master's degree in Physiology and Pathophysiology at the University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, France in 2010.

My PhD project at the department of physiology (Radboudumc) focused on the identification and characterization of new genes involved in renal magnesium reabsorption. This work resulted in the thesis "The Distal Convoluted Tubule: The Art of Magnesium Transport". I identified the genetic origin of disease in patients with magnesium disturbances by next generation sequencing techniques. Using a wide range of molecular, cellular and physiological techniques, I examined new genes or new regulatory pathways in magnesium (re)absorption in the kidney. As assistant professor, I have started my own research team studying the role of magnesium in health and disease. Supported by NWO Rubicon and Veni Grants and a Dutch Kidney Foundation Kolff Grant, my team is examining the role of magnesium in the prevention of cardiovascular complications in the context of chronic kidney disease. Moreover, I study the role of magnesium in the development of the type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Field of study

Physiology

Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences

Our main aim is to achieve a greater understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease. By integrating fundamental and clinical research, we obtain multifaceted knowledge of (patho)physiological processes. read more

Research group Magnesium in health and disease

Jeroen de Baaij's research group examines the role of magnesium in health and disease. Our team studies the regulation of magnesium handling by the intestine and the kidney, as well as the role of magnesium in disease including diabetes mellitus type 2 and chronic kidney disease.
