Laboratory of Lipid Biochemistry and Protein Interactions KU Leuven


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 ...

Connexin Signalling Research Group Vrije Universiteit Brussel

To elucidate the role of connexin and pannexin signalling in health and disease with focus on the liver (VUB team) and the nervous system (UGent team).

Laboratory of Lipid Metabolism and Cancer KU Leuven


The Laboratory of Lipid Metabolism and Cancer focusses on altered lipid metabolism in cancer cells. Using a state-of-the-art mass spectrometry-based lipidomics technology the group has made the intriguing observation that development and progression of cancer is almost invariably accompanied by dramatic changes in the cell’s composition of phospholipids. As phospholipids play a key role in the formation of membranes, which organize numerous ...

Proteinchemistry, proteomics and epigenetic signalling(PPES) University of Antwerp

The cluster Proteinscience, proteomics and epigenetic signalling is active on three domains: neurodegeneration, infection and inflammation. For the first part the cluster studies for example the effects of hypoxia/ischemia and the role of hemeproteins herein and how this is perceived in metabolic active tissue such as brain. In the second part the virus-ghost relationship will be studie on intra- and extracellulair level. In the final part the ...

Laboratory of Glia Biology (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research) KU Leuven


The long-term goal of Laboratory of Glia Biologyis to understand the molecular mechanisms that control development and function of astrocytes in vivo, and how they interact with neurons.
Our strategy is to use astrocytes isolated from mouse brain as a starting point. This allows us to effectively take a “bottom up” approach to astrocyte function. In a first step, we are combining state-of-the-art biochemical and physiological techniques ...
