Personal details


My research focuses on the nephrotoxicity of ochratoxin A (OTA) and proteins that affect the transport of ochratoxin A in the kidney. Cell culture and in vivo studies are combined to explore the nephrotoxicity.

Insight into OTA-induced nephrotoxicity will help to:

  • Clarify the mechanisms of OTA toxicity.
  • Increase understanding of why the main target organ of OTA is the kidney.
  • Increase insight into the function of transporters in OTA-mediated toxicity.
  • Prevent and possibly treat OTA-induced nephrotoxicity.

For the studies, I use cell lines overexpressing transport proteins and gene knockout cell lines.
