At the department of Physiology, she is mainly involved in developing, coordinating and teaching in the new education program.
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.
