VIB CMN - Neurodegenerative Brain Diseases Group University of Antwerp

Our focus is on genetics, genomics and neuropathology of the neurodegenerative brain diseases Alzheimer's disease (AD), frontal temporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), attempting to find molecular mechanisms of protein aggregation in dementia. We systematical collect large samples of patients and relatives for genetic studies aiming at identifying disease genes using either a positional cloning strategy in multiplex ...

Laboratory for the Research of Neurodegenerative Diseases (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven

Responsible

The Laboratory for the Research of Neurodegenerative Diseases performes research into the fundamental molecular processes that underlay neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Their work has also contributed to insights into general physiologically mechanisms, in particular, the understanding of regulated intramembrane proteolysis as an important signaling mechanism in health and disease. They have demonstrated the ...

Laboratory of Membrane Trafficking (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven

Responsible

The research in the Laboratory of Membrane Trafficking is focused on the cell biology and trafficking of the g-secretase components. This multiprotein complex has been implicated in a new signal transduction paradigm, called Regulated Intramembrane Proteolysis or RIP and is critical in a wide variety of important cellular activities including embryogenesis, brain development and haematopoiesis. RIP also plays a central role in Alzheimer's ...

Laboratory for Neurobiology (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven

The Laboratory of Neurobiology focuses on the mechanisms of acute and chronic axonal and neuronal degeneration and regeneration, aiming to contribute to the development of new therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative disorders. We intensively study motor neuron diseases (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and hereditary motor neuropathies), frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and stroke.
