Research is organized in a multidisciplinary Gender Dysphoria Research Group.

The general aim of our research is:

  • To better understand the condition,
  • To better understand the effects and side effects of treatment,
  • To develop and improve quality of care for people with gender dysphoria

Towards this aim studies are performed to increase basic knowledge and to study etiology and development of the disorder. Furthermore, we aim to improve and develop treatment strategies, investigate the effects of treatments, and assess quality of care.

We have subdivided research in three main themes:

  • Fundamental Studies,
  • Etiology and Development 
  • Quality of Care
