Biochemistry, Molecular and Structural Biology Section KU Leuven

Responsible

Research on four types of functionally active proteins - Copper proteins : hemocyanins (involved in dioxygen binding). - Thiol proteins: metallothioneins (metal detoxication and donation). - Protease inhibitors: alpha -2-macroglobulin homologues. - Regulatory proteins: cytokines (defencesystems against infection). Aim: to determine, after their isolation or possible induction, the composition and the primary to quaternary structure of these ...

Department of Biochemistry Ghent University

The Department provides groundbreaking research: annual research results are published in the most prominent international magazines. The Department is one of the departments of the Flemish Institute of Biotechnology (VIB) since its startup in 1996. The research is linked to two UGent's spearhead programs: immunology / inflammation and bioinformatics. The international appearance of the research also shows the acquisition of highly competitive ...

Laboratory of Lipid Biochemistry and Protein Interactions KU Leuven

Responsible

The Laboratory of Lipid Biochemistry and Protein Interactions conducts high quality fundamental research, focusing on the role of peroxisomes in complex cellular processes (lipid metabolism, ROS/RNS metabolism, organelle dynamics and dysfunctions) in mammals and aims to provide insight in inherited and other human disorders linked to these organelles via cellular studies and mouse models.

The Laboratory of Lipid Biochemistry and Protein ...

Veterinary physiology and biochemistry University of Antwerp

Responsible
The research group Veterinary Physiology and Biochemistry concentrates its academic scientific research within the Gameter Research Center, a platform where the female gamete, the embryo and the early embryonic development have a central position. More specifically, (environmental) factors are studied that might have a (negative) influence on oocyte developmental capacity and embryo growth, including possible consequences during pregnancy, for ...

Pathologic Biochemistry and Physiology Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The department of Pathologic Biochemistry and Physiology is responsible for (post)graduate teaching in this field. It also plays a co-ordinating role in the organisation of courses and training in medical research. Within its own laboratories, the department offers training to Master and Ph.D. students in research projects in the field of diabetes. The research activities are undertaken within the broader framework of the Diabetes Research ...

Medical Biochemistry Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Diabetes mellitus is in many cases a disease state of the pancreatic insulin-producing beta cells, which are either destroyed by an auto-immune assault (type 1 diabetes) or fail to produce and secrete sufficient amounts of insulin under different physiological conditions (type 2 diabetes). Reseach performed within the VUB-unit BIOV is situated within the Diabetes Research Centre (DRC) and has as general aim to better understand how normal ...
