Cardiovascular physiology and exercise
Dick Thijssen's research group focuses on the field of cardiovascular physiology and physical (in)activity. His work strongly focuses on understanding the impact of exercise training and physical activity on reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
Clinical pharmacology - special populations
Saskia de Wildt's research group uses innovative methods including microdosing and microtracer technology, and physiology-based and population pharmacokinetic modeling, to contribute to a better understanding of the impact of age, disease and genetics on drug disposition in children.
Thijs Eijsvogels’s research group studies the acute and long-term effects of exercise on health. Current projects involve cardiac imaging following lifelong exercise training, optimizing cardiac rehab, assessing thermoregulatory responses in elite athletes and development of cooling strategies.
Pharmacology of antibiotic agents
Roger Brüggemann's and Nynke Jager's research group investigates the pharmacokinetics and dynamics of antimicrobial agents. Research ranges from in vitro experiments to clinical trials in special patient populations. The main aim is to define the optimal dose for each individual patient.
Pharmacology of anti-tuberculosis drugs
Rob Aarnoutse's research group investigates the pharmacology of existing and new drugs for tuberculosis, using a translational approach that extends from molecular pharmacology to clinical pharmacology studies and to clinical trials, supported by advanced laboratory and modeling techniques.
Pharmacology of antiviral drugs (HIV and HCV)
David Burger's group investigates the pharmacology of antiviral drugs for the treatment of HIV and hepatitis C in special patient population such as pregnant women, children and hepatically impaired patients. We also study drug-drug interactions and the impact on exposure of new drug-formulations.
Radboud applied pharmacometrics
Rob ter Heine's and Elin Svensson's research group develops and applies mathematical models describing clinical pharmacology processes to interpret clinical trial data, perform clinical trial simulations, support drug development decisions, and optimize therapy in the clinic.
