Research Kidney physiology

About

We want to decipher the mechanisms of electrolyte disorders. We combine genetic analysis of patients with functional studies in cell and animal models to study the regulation of mineral handling by the kidney and mineral disturbances in cardiovascular and chronic kidney disease.

Aims


  • The development of next-generation diagnostics and innovative functional methods to measure magnesium transport are essential to diagnose and to understand magnesium-wasting tubulopathies. We envision that patient-specific models are the future of pathophysiological research. Personalized drug screening to identify therapeutics that fit the needs of individual patients will become the new standard for treatment of rare diseases
