How our research benefits to society
Drug therapy is the cornerstone for treating many diseases and preventing disease progression and complications. In our department, we conduct pre-clinical, translational and clinical research, with a special focus on diabetes or cancer. In recent years, we have made important discoveries to prevent the progression of diabetic kidney disease, which may affect up to a third of all people with type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, our department is involved in the development of innovative diagnostics and treatments for cancer. In addition, we are testing a range of new strategies to support optimal and cost-effective drug use in individual patients in clinical practice.
