Medical Genetics (MEDGEN)
Lifecycle:1 Oct 2022 → Today
Organisation profile:MEDGEN is an interfaculty research team (FGGW and FBD and Center of Excellence at the University of Antwerp. MEDGEN aims to identify the genetic causes and underlying pathogenetic mechanisms of both common and rare constitutional genetic disorders affecting the cardiovascular, sensorial, neurodevelopmental, skeletal and adipose system. In addition, the unravelling of the pathogenic mechanisms underlying different types of cancer are aimed at. The ultimate goal is to translate these new genetic and pathomechanistic discoveries into an improvement of the quality of life of patients.
