Precision Prediction & Precision Medicine
In this project we are searching for biomarkers in 600 patients with established (>5 years) diabetes. We are investigating the inter-relation and patterns of expression in clinical, (auto)immune, metabolic, inflammatory and other parameters, and (potential) biomarkers. Blood and urine samples are collected annually (over 3 years) in standardized conditions and biobanked. In addition, 150 patients will undergo additional metabolic testing (such as mixed meal-tests).
As part of this project we aim to answer questions such as:
This project is a strategic research agreement (SRA) with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), and involves the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) as well as Diabeter.
