Welcome at the homepage of the 3D Structure-Function unit of the Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht.
We are based within the department of Biochemistry, part of the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences of the Maastricht University.
Our research focusses on deciphering the 3D structure-function relationships of biologically relevant proteins and
on the translation of structure-function data into novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
