Laboratory for Molecular Diagnosis KU Leuven
The translational research activities of the diagnostic team concern the development and validation of new technologies for use in diagnostics. The lab has developed specific gene panels for various genetically heterogeneous disorders and offers 'mendelioom' sequencing within the clinical service.
Department of Oncology KU Leuven
The Department of Oncology at the KU Leuven fosters synergy in innovative oncological research. By creating a close link between bed and bench and by capitalizing on advanced technologies, our researchers aim to unravel key molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of cancer and to maximize opportunities to translate these findings into better clinical biomarkers, adaptive strategies and innovative treatments
The Architectural Engineering Section aims for innovation in the design of buildings by approaching architecture from an engineering point of view. The emphasis is on the technical aspects of architecture: structure, materials, services, and comfort requirements are considered in a multidisciplinary setting in order quantify, assess, and improve the quality, cost, and sustainability of buildings and the built environment. In order to achieve ...

Laboratory for Parkinson Research KU Leuven
The Laboratory for Parkinson Research investigates the molecular basis of Parkinson’s disease in order to find new targets for disease-modifying therapy. They study the cellular functions of proteins that have been genetically linked to Parkinson’s disease. So far they have focused mainly on the function of the Parkin protein. Loss of function mutations in the gene for Parkin are the main cause of recessive Parkinson’s disease. Parkin plays a ...
