  • The VIB Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG) The VIB DMG has a longstanding tradition of combining expertise in molecular genetics and clinical neurology to analyze complex neurological diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. In the next years, the focus will be on increasing our understanding of the molecular aspects of neurodegenerative processes observed in diseases like neurodegenerative dementia and peripheral neuropathies with the ultimate goal to gather sufficient information to open avenues for translational research and potential therapeutic interventions.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
