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.
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.
Magnesium in health and disease
Jeroen de Baaij's research group examines the role of magnesium in health and disease. Our mission is to decipher the pathophysiological mechanisms of magnesoium-wasting tubulopathies by development of novel disease models and advanced methods to measure magnesium transport.
Renal electrolyte handling
René Bindels' research group studies the regulation of ion transport processes in kidney and small intestine in health and disease. Current projects involve the molecular mechanisms underlying rare tubulopathies and the regulation of the newly identified calcium, magnesium and sodium transporters.
