Scientific Board

Our customers operate in the front lines of the biomedical sciences. To offer them the best possible service and to be able to respond to the latest developments it is important to have a sounding board within the different disciplines of Biomedical Sciences. Our Scientific Advisory Board, consisting of leading scientists, signals the developments and gives us solicited and unsolicited advice. This way we remain up-to-date and state-of-the-art in helping you with our services and innovative solutions to bring your research further.

Our Scientific Advisory Board consists of:

Prof. Dr. Alain de Bruin
Oncology, Veterinary Pathologist
Affiliation: University of Utrecht

Research focus:
Alain de Bruin's group is interested in the molecular mechanisms that control cell proliferation in normal cells and in cancer cells. The group wants to understand how E2F transcription factors mediate the appropriate control of the cell cycle entry and exit that is required for normal development and tumour suppression. Read more>>

Prof. Dr. Niels Geijsen
Pluripotent stemcells in development and disease
Affiliation: KNAW – Hubrecht Institute

Research focus:
Niels Geijsen's group is interested in the molecular mechanisms that control cell proliferation in normal cells and in cancer cells. The group wants to understand how E2F transcription factors mediate the appropriate control of the cell cycle entry and exit that is required for normal development and tumour suppression.

Prof. Dr. Gerald de Haan
Molecular Stemcell Biology & Aging
Affiliation: ERIBA – UMC Groningen – MCCA

Research focus:
The general scope of studies in his laboratory is to further improve the understanding of mechanisms that specify normal stem cell functioning. Studies focus on hematopoietic stem cells, largely because superior technical tools and invaluable functional assays exist to study stem cells in this particular tissue. De Haan's group is interested in the unique genetic and epigenetic program that distinguishes stem cells from non-stem cells.

Prof. Dr. Danny Huylebroeck
Cell Biology
Affiliation: Erasmus MC and KU Leuven

Research focus:
The major current research projects of the Huylebroeck teams include:

  • Functional analysis of Smad signalling and Smad-interacting proteins (SIPs, including transcription factors) in conditional knock-out mice and stem cells from mouse and human, mainly of embryonic origin.
  • Systems biology of Smad/SIP signalling in embryonic stem cell differentiation.
  • Mouse models for studying BMP-regulated stem cell niches in normal development and organ repair. Read more>>

Prof. Dr. Jos Jonkers
Oncology
Affiliation: NKI – MCCA  

Research focus:
The focus of Jonker's group is on the genetic dissection of human breast cancer through the use of advanced mouse models. Read more >>

Prof. Dr. Bart Lambrecht
Immunology and Inflammation
Affiliation: Research Center (IRC), Laboratory of immunoregulation and mucosal immunology VIB/University Gent

Research focus:
Research in Lambrecht's group is focused on unravelling the functions of lung dendritic cells and epithelial cells in asthma and respiratory viral infection. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by eosinophilic airway inflammation, goblet cell metaplasia and bronchial hyper reactivity. Read more >>

Prof. Dr. Ronald Oude Elferink
Experimental Hepatology
Affiliation: Academic Medical Centre Amsterdam

Research focus:
Focus of research is the role of transporter proteins in the canalicular membrane, which are involved in the formation of bile, particularly the mechanism of bile salt and lipid excretion across the canalicular membrane. Read more >>

Prof. Dr. Leon de Windt
Cardiovascular Diseases
Affiliation: University Maastricht

Research focus:
De Windt's laboratory is interested in cardiac gene regulatory mechanisms by transcription factors and microRNAs that control pathological cardiac remodelling, an early step towards heart failure. Read more >>
