The Amyloidosis Center of Expertise (GrACE) is part of the University Medical Center Groningen. The broad expertise that the Center has built up since the 1960s allows us to specialize in early recognition, detection, typing, mapping of organ manifestations, treatment and monitoring of amyloidosis in all its forms. Various medical disciplines work together closely to ensure that patients with (suspected) amyloidosis receive the best care. On this website you can learn about the various types of amyloidosis and treatments, the Center of Expertise, and the latest developments.


The early recognition and treatment of amyloidosis in order to minimise the effects of decline in health. Our focus is therefore on the improvement of diagnosis and the treatment of patients with amyloidosis. In addition, we offer information to patients, physicians and other individuals involved.
You can read here how you can support us financially.
