Marfan Syndrome (MFS) is a heritable connective tissue disorder that affects multiple organ systems including the lungs, eyes, the skeleton and the aorta. Romy Franken’s research focuses on the diagnosis, prognosis and markers of aortic disease in MFS patients. The aim is to obtain more knowledge about the role of genetics in MFS, as well as greater insight into novel pharmacological strategies to prevent aortic complications.
