We develop and translate novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. We have special focus on advanced metabolic imaging using hyperpolarized carbon-13 MRI. It is our aim to improve the diagnostic accuracy by imaging the underling metabolic disturbances in diseases and their response to therapy.
Our research focus on inborn errors of metabolism. We integrate genetic diagnostics with research into cell pathological mechanisms and novel treatments with focus on mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress. We apply our knowledge in complex metabolic diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Our lab studies the various aspects of chronic kidney desease, including the role of the prostaglandin system in renal inflammation as well as renal fibrosis, and we aim to unravel mechanisms of disease and to identify new therapeutic targets. Our work ranges from basic science to clinical research.
