Profile

I was involved in renal transplantation, at the Radboud University Nijmegen; particularly interest in trials with immunosuppression. Which immunosuppressive regimens are more effective in terms of preventing rejection, with the emphasis on side-effects. Other topic is follow-up of transplant patients and living donors, and particularly the databases that included data from those topics. Current interest are motivations behind decisions whether or not kidney donor organs should be offered to recipient; is it better to wait for another kidney offer, or accept the current offer. Since 2013 involved in a European project to investigate whether a European Registry for follow-up of living donors would be feasible.
