Research (LGMZ)

Research at Lab GMD is focused on genetic metabolic diseases in a broad context, ranging from rare inherited metabolic diseases to pediatric cancer and age-related metabolic disease. The research is led by five group leaders/PIs, whose research focus is on different metabolic themes. In addition to basic research on metabolism, lab GMD has strong ties with clinicians at the departments of Pediatric Metabolic Diseases (headed by prof. dr. Frits Wijburg), Pediatric Neurology (headed by prof. dr. Marjo van der Knaap) and Internal Medicine - Adult Metabolic Diseases (prof. dr. Carla Hollak) to stimulate translational research that benefits the patients suffering from these devastating metabolic disorders.
