Our team combines the expertise and experience of professionals from several departments in the Amsterdam UMC (genetics, paediatrics, ophthalmology, laboratory for genetic metabolic diseases) as well as the patient organization for metabolic diseases (VKS).

In order to carry out this project we have received funding from the AMC Foundation, Stichting Steun Emma, Stichting Metakids, Amsterdam Gastroenterology and Metabolism research institute (AGM) and the horstingstuit foundation.

We need you!

Team work is essential in research and care for rare diseases and our plans are ambitious. We kindly invite you as health professional, researcher and/or patient & family to join our efforts. Thanks to our sponsors, we have obtained enough funding to start our project. Of course we will need more funding to continue our research and reach our goals, i.e. a healthy future for all GACR patients. We and our patient community would be really thankful for any donations to support this great cause.
