Laboratory of Genetics of Autoimmunity (VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research)


Lifecycle:1 Feb 2009 →  Today
Organisation profile:

The research is focused on the cellular and molecular basis of immune tolerance mechanisms and failure. They study genetic basis of immune tolerance through the generation of murine models of disease and the analysis of genetic defects in patients with immune disorders. The laboratory specializes in the study of regulatory T cells, primary immunodeficiencies, diabetes and T cell development.

Disciplines:Genetics, Systems biology, Molecular and cell biology
