Research Topic:
Thesis Title: "Genetic influence on the lipid metabolism in hemodialysis patients"

The subject of my thesis is to investigate the genetic variability of selected candidate genes influencing the lipid metabolism in hemodialysis patients. Furthermore, the association of genetic variations with atherosclerotic complications will be prospectively investigated in these patients.
