Genetic translation studies. KU Leuven
After centuries of neglect, the translator is now recognised as a crucial negotiator in the international exchange of ideas. Accessing reliable versions of foreign texts is absolutely vital for international dialogue and establishing common grounds for the exchange of culture. Within this process, translators are regularly held accountable for their perceived fidelity to the translated text and for the success of its adaptation to the target ...
Genetic and pharmacological studies of two growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase-ligands in cancer: Gas6 and PlGF KU Leuven
Following cardiovascular diseases, cancer
represents the second mostcommon cause of death in the western world. In 2008
the world healthorganization (WHO) estimated 12,7 million new cancer cases, of
thosecases 7.6 million people die of cancer. Cancer is a heterogeneous class
of diseases, which arises from ...
(Epi)Genetic studies and system biology approaches to characterize rare inherited bleeding and platelet disorders: from patient studies to basic biology to cl inical applications KU Leuven
In this OT project, (epi)genetic large-scale studies in combination with functional in vitro studies will be used to characterize patients with “rare inherited Bleeding and Platelet Disorders (BPDs)”. (Epi)Genetic studies and system biology approaches to characterize rare inherited bleeding and platelet disorders: from patient studies to basic biology to clinical applications.
PEAR1 (epi)genetic profiling in population studies to unravel its potential role in platelet and endothelial cell function variability KU Leuven
Platelets are small circulating cells that play a crucial role in arresting bleeding after vascular trauma. One of the proteins that contributes to this process is the Platelet Endothelial Aggregation Receptor-1 (PEAR1) which stabilizes platelet aggregation. PEAR1 is also present in cells that are precursors of platelets and in cells, present in the blood stream. In the last years PEAR1 has been found to be a potential player in ...
