Tytgat Institute for Liver and Intestinal Research

The liver and intestinal research of the AMC is concentrated in the Tytgat Institute. Housing more than 70 basic and clinical scientists, we are one of the leading international research centers in gastroenterology and hepatology.
Research in the Tytgat Institute is both fundamental and translational, but always built on a clinical question, providing results that can be translated into clinical practice.
Extensive collaboration between physicians and researchers ensures a close link between the clinic and basic research.
