- We investigate the regulation of (patho)physiological processes via reversible protein phosphorylation, and explore the therapeutic potential of the kinases and phosphatases involved. Focus is on Protein Kinase D (PKD) and Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A), but increasingly also on broader (kinome and phosphatome wide) approaches to systematically identify kinases/phosphatases that are implicated in (patho)physiological ...
Department of Biochemistry Ghent University
The Research Unit Hypertension and Cardiovascular Epidemiology (HCVE) coordinated influential clinical trials, published in top-ranking journals, such as the Systolic Hypertension in Europe Trial (Syst-Eur), the Ambulatory blood Pressure monitoring and Treatment of Hypertension trial (APTH) and the Treatment of hypertension based on Home or Office blood Pressure trial (THOP). HCVE led the Data Safety and Monitoring Board of large clinical ...
Integrated Molecular Plant Physiology Research (IMPRES) University of Antwerp
The Laboratory of Synapse Biology aims to unravel the molecular mechanisms that control neuronal connectivity in developing circuits, and determine how perturbations in this process affect cognitive function.
Translational Neurobiology University of Antwerp
Diagnostic Bacteriology Institute of Tropical Medicine
The Unit of Diagnostic Bacteriology was launched in November 2014 within the Department of Biomedical Sciences. This unit implements genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics and proteomics to discover novel approaches for improved diagnosis of bacterial bloodstream infections and to investigate virulence, transmission and antibiotic resistance.
Biomarkers and approaches will be translated into innovative diagnostic tests together with ...
