Usher syndrome: Genetics and functional genomics
Hannie Kremer's group aims to identify genetic defects that underlie hereditary hearing impairment and to unravel the molecular pathogenesis. Identification of deafness genes provides knowledge on inner ear function. Furthermore, it will provide handles for the development of future therapy.
Visualization Techniques in Oncological Surgery (ViTOS)
Robert Take's research group aims to develop and implement advanced magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasound (US) and photo-acoustics (PA) techniques to guide the surgeon in optimizing the removal of cancer. This will result in better oncologic and functional outcomes with a reduction of costs.
