Curriculum vitae

Prof. Bert Smeets (1960), biochemist, did his PhD in Human Genetics in Nijmegen. His work concentrates on mitochondrial dysfunction in metabolic, cardiovascular and neurological diseases, which is reflected in > 170 peer-reviewed papers and supportive grants. The aim is to identify the genetic causes, understand the pathology, prevent the transmission and, finally, develop new therapeutic approaches for these devastating often fatal disorders.
