Who we are and what we do...
This is the website of the Interventional & Translational Cardiology (ITC) research group of the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). This group is headed by Prof.dr. Pim van der Harst.
The ITC group has had the great fortune of working on some truly inspiring projects, while collaborating with many influential and creative individuals and research groups along the way. We believe in the power of working together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Our work focuses on enhancing our understanding and improving the treatment of cardiovascular disease. To this end we initiate clinical trials and perform in depth studies of big-data sets, including the the analysis of 'omics' data (genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, radiomics and the microbiome).
