Clinical Interest for Patients
I am interested in metabolic disorders, neurometabolic disorders and mitochondrial energy disorders, fatty acid oxidation disorders and ketones utilization disorders.
I strive to provide the very best care currently available and to work on developing better care for tomorrow.

Research Interests for Patients
Please visit my lab research web page at https://tinyurl.com/JohanVanHove-lab I am interested in neurometabolic diseases that causes seizures, in particular in non-ketotic hyperglycinemia. I study the genetic basis, the clinical spectrum, the prediction of outcome including the relation between genotype and phenotype, the pathogenesis in animal models and human patients and the development of new treatments for this condition. I am also interested in pyridoxine dependent epilepsy and related metabolic causes of seizures. I am interested in the development of appropriate clinical tests for mitochondrial energy disorders, in the identification and proof of new genetic causes as well as the development of new treatments. Disorders of lipoate metabolism are a particular focus.
