The Nijmegen Centre for Mitochondrial Disorders (NCMD) is a full facility international reference centre for clinical care, biochemical, pathological and molecular biological diagnostics and research of patients suspected for or with established disturbances of the mitochondrial energy metabolism.
The NCMD is a multi-disciplinary diagnostic and research facility of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre initiated by the Department of Metabolic and Endocrine Diseases of the University Children's Hospital Nijmegen
Patient care is at the heart, and research is at the foundation of the NCMD at the Department of Pediatrics of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre. This Centres unifies the three essential elements of medical progress, diagnosis, treatment and research.
The physicians and scientists of the NCMD are all working toward a common goal: to understand and develop more effective treatments for mitochondrial and metabolic disease. This is accomplished through a unified programme of patient care, basic science, and clinical research.
