Carlo Gaillard (internist-nephrologist, Chair Division of Internal Medicine and Dermatoliogy, UMCU) is former head of the department of Nephrology at the University Medical Center in Groningen. In 2017 he relocated to become Chair of the Division Internal Medicine and Dermatology at the University of Utrecht Medical Center.


He was trained at the University of Utrecht Medical Center. He has a specific interest in renal physiology (fueled by his stay at Dr AC Guyton’s lab, University of Mississippi, USA) and cardiorenal and cardiometabolic (including anemia and iron deficiency) interactions. His clinical research is related to cardiometabolic and cardiorenal complications in CKD patients focussing on mechanisms that are responsible for failure to adequately respond to renal hypoxia, such as erythropoietin resistance, hepcidin, and inflammation. In recent years the emphasis has shifted from erythropoietin to iron deficiency resulting in, among others, membership of the steering committee of the FIND CKD study and participation in the KDIGO Controversy Conference “Iron management in chronic kidney disease”. H-index 45.
