About Radboudumc Center for Iron Disorders
The Radboudumc Center for Iron Disorders (RCID) is a full facility (inter)national expertise center for clinical care, diagnostics and research of patients suspected for or with established iron disorders.
Our Center aims to have a significant impact on patients with iron disorders. To this end, we offer top end clinical care to both adult and children with hereditary hemochromatosis and anemia due to defects in iron metabolism or heem synthesis, and develop clinical guidelines for these disorders.
Our team of researchers focuses on the understanding of iron metabolism, in particular the identification and characterization of novel factors that affect dysregulation of iron homeostasis in various human disorders. New findings are translated into novel diagnostic assays and therapeutic strategies that can be implemented in the clinic.
