Expertise units

Our expertise units provide access to state-of-the-art services and equipment for all of our researchers, and at the same time they foster the development of new ideas and methodologies. These technology platforms are led by independent technology experts, and are either embedded in our department, or set up in collaboration with other VIB research centers and partners at KU Leuven.

We also have a wide range of equipment available for histopathology, which you can book here.


"Scientific progress is driven by hypothesis and technology development. We continue to invest in our world-class technologies and technologists to maintain our position as a world-leading research center."
