Molecular Digestive Oncology KU Leuven
The laboratory for Molecular Digestive Oncology focusses on gastro-intestinal cancers and currently has two types of activities:
- large molecular annotation projects, aimed at better describing the overall molecular identity of GI tumors and potential subtypes. Activities here include in depth molecular annotation of tumor series, state of the art bioinformatics for subtype derivation and biological annotation, comparisons of ...
Gene Expression Unit KU Leuven
We are interested in RNA expression of mammalian insulin producing pancreatic beta cells in order to explain how these cells function in normal health and how dysfunction can cause inappropriate release of insulin and diabetes. We study the profound phenotypic changes that occur in rodent beta cells during pregnancy. One of these changes concern serotonin production and secretion by a subpopulation of a heterogeneous beta cell population. ...
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 ...
