About the department

UT – Strategic impulse program on Key Enabling Technologies for Personalized Medicine
The University of Twente recently started a strategic impulse program (SIP) on Key Enabling Technologies for Personalized Medicine. This program has three primary long-term goals: profiling, networking and partnering in the fields of medical technology and personalized medicine for improving personalize care. One of the key pillars there is that of “Personalized Renal Health”.

Personalized Renal Health
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been recognized as a leading public health problem, with approximately 1 in 10 Europeans suffering from different kidney diseases. These mortality figures are increasing, but nevertheless kidney disease treatments have not substantially changed over the last decades. Currently, the best treatment is kidney replacement therapy), but with a structural shortage of transplant kidneys, and not all patients being fit for transplantation, CKD patients still need alternative therapies such as hemo- and peritoneal dialysis). As such novel therapies for CKD patients are strongly needed. Within the pillar of Personalized Renal health of the SIP, we aim to connect researchers, but also doctors, patients, companies and other stakeholders, and together set up a network to exchange ideas, build consortia, and strong partnerships to help tackle this worldwide problem.
