Understanding the brain, curing disease
At our Center, we aim to unravel the basic biological mechanisms of neurobiology and brain disease and translate these findings into innovative therapeutic strategies
Explore our science, meet our people
Want to get to know our different teams? From brain wiring to protein aggregation and neuroinflammation, the best science is done with the best technology and, of course, the best brains.
Many of our research projects are conducted in close partnership with other research groups around the world. We also have close and ongoing collaborations with our colleagues at our two host institutes, VIB and KU Leuven, including, NERF and UZ Leuven.
Our research is supported by the Flemish government and several (inter)national funding bodies but also by numerous charity organizations that recognize the importance of combining fundamental and clinical research to generate therapeutic breakthroughs.
