Lab members



The goal of the Experimental Lab of Translational Neuroscience and Otolaryngology at the Department of Translational Neurosciences, University of Antwerp, headed by professor Stefanie Dedeurwaerdere, is to characterize the neurophysiological processes during disease ontogenesis in animal models with in vivo imaging biomarkers and histological techniques. The expanding research team currently consists of two postdocs, three PhD students, two research technicians and several Masters’ students and has vast knowledge and skills to enhance the understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms of brain diseases. The members of our team not only cross interdisciplinary boarders for our research (e.g. radiochemistry, neurobiology, image analysis), but also national boarders (Poland, Spain, Italy, India).
