Full Professor
Joost Hoenderop Ph.D.

Joost Hoenderop's background is in molecular-biology and physiology and he obtained his Ph.D. degree in Medical Science at the University of Nijmegen in 2000. As Ph.D., he identified the epithelial calcium channel (TRPV5), which is the gatekeeper of active calcium transport in epithelia present in kidney and intestine. Subsequently, he generated TRPV5 knockout mice as EMBO-fellow at the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology at University of Lausanne, Switzerland. He is a member of the Young Nephrology Committee from the International Society of Nephrology. In 2010 he became a member of the The Young Academy of The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. His current work focuses on the regulation of the mineral balance by using several epithelial cell lines and animal models. Hoenderop is a recipient of the prestigious EURYI 2006 grant. In July 2010, he was promoted to full professor in Molecular Renal Physiology.
