Polycystic liver disease
Joost Drenth's group aims to discover novel paradigms for effective treatment of patients. Our strategy starts with disease gene discovery followed by functional studies to understand cellular pathogenesis. The main focus is polycystic liver disease, a rare inherited liver disorder.
The Nijmegen Fontan Initiative
Our main goal is to provide excellent care for patients with a Fontan circulation. We aim to understand, diagnose and treat manifestations such as protein-losing enteropathy and Fontan-associated liver disease, but also discover yet unknown extra-cardiac manifestations.
