Research group

Laboratory of cell biology and histology


  • - lightmicroscopic research (conventional, fluorescence, confocal) of cells and tissues - live cell imaging: calcium measurements, FRET and FRAP techniques - electrophysiological intracellular recordings - neuronal tracings - transmission and scanning electron microscopy of cells and tissues - (immuno)cytochemical and (immuno)histochemical research - in situ hybridisation; RT-PCR, Western/Northern blotting - cell and tissue cultures - lightmicroscopical microtomy: paraffin-, cryostat- and vibratome sections - electronmicroscopical microtomy: ultramicrotomy of tissues, cryo-ultramicrotomy
  • The interfaculty research group ‘Cell Biology and Histology’ has the responsibility to enlarge the core facility ‘Biomedical microscopic imaging’ and to support the community of the university concerning microscopic imaging. Available services/expertise: - scientific and technical support in setting up new experiments belonging to the expertise of the core facility, and aid with interpretation of the results - technical and scientific support of researchers and students at the different microscopy systems of the core facility, including image recording, -processing and -analysing


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.
