Laboratory of cell biology and histology University of Antwerp

The Laboratory of Cell Biology and Histology (CBH) is an interfaculty research group, uniting scientists from the Faculty of Biomedical, Pharmaceutical and Veterinary sciences and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Their joint mission is to elucidate the cell biological principles of human physiology and disease, so as to expose new entry points for diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.Core research lines strongly align with key ...

Laboratory of Cell Death Research & Therapy KU Leuven


The Laboratory of Cell Death Research & Therapy researches Defective regulation of cell death, especially in the form of apoptosis, contributes to the development of crucial pathologies including cancer and plays a major role in chemoresistance. Mechanisms regulating cancer cell death also affect the emission of ‘danger signals’ from the stressed/dying cells, which critically define their ‘immunogenic character’ and impact the initiation ...

Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Signaling KU Leuven


The main focus of the research of the Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Signaling is Ca2+ signalling in health and disease. We have a longstanding tradition in the investigation of cellular Ca2+ signalling both in single cells and in cell populations. We have developed a number of state-of-the-art techniques including fluorescence and confocal microscopy, luminescence and fluorescence multiplate reader, flux experiments with 45Ca2+ and a ...

Nanostructured and organic optical and electronic materials (NANOrOPT) University of Antwerp

Optical spectroscopy (absorption and emission, raman scattering, ultrafast laser spectroscopy) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR; continuous and pulsed, in X-band, 9.5 GHz, and at high frequency in W-band, 95 GHz) spectroscopy are applied in the research group in order to investigate the properties of different condensed matter systems, and in particular: (i) Defects and impurities in technologically relevant crystalline materials e.g., ...
