Renal imaging (Prof. B.Vogt); Role of the kidney in Vit D metabolism and atherosclerosis (PD Dr. G. Escher); Sodium / proton exchangers (NHEs) (Prof. Dr. D. Fuster); Steroids (Dr. N. Dhayat, Dr. D.

Membrane Transport Discovery Lab (Prof. M. Hediger) →
Transport proteins are gatekeepers in membranes of cells and organelles and their dysfunction contributes to the pathogenesis of major human diseases. Our research focuses on medically important transporters that serve as targets for the development of novel treatment strategies and precision medicine tools.
