DNA-staal levert robotfoto op

Postdoctoraal onderzoeker Peter Claes en zijn collega’s beschrijven de techniek in een recente publicatie in PLOS Genetics. Forensische, antropologische en medische toepassingen liggen – bijna – voor de hand.

'We kunnen kanker steeds beter opsporen én bestrijden' (prof. D. Lambrechts, PI Program Funding SymBioSys )

Hoe klein België ook is, we hebben heel wat wetenschappers in huis die door hun baanbrekende onderzoek tot de wereldtop behoren. Bio-ingenieur Diether Lambrechts bijvoorbeeld, die via DNA-onderzoek de ‘genetische geheimen’ van kanker probeert te ontrafelen en zo de weg vrijmaakt voor betere preventie, snellere diagnose en efficiëntere behandelingsmogelijkheden.

Feeling the pulse in healthcare.

“The health sector is the biggest employer in the country, accounting for 1 in 9 jobs. It is an important economic sector, with major pharmaceutical companies, and a very important scientific sector, since Belgian biomedical researchers are among the very best in the world.”
- Leo Neels, chairman of the Advisory Board of the VHMC

Why ICT for health?


Biobank UZ

You share, we care

Each of you carries around a wealth of information for biomedical research, be it in your blood, your tissue, your DNA. With your consent, and of course respecting your privacy, hospitals can store some of that information in their biomedical warehouses. Well equipped biobanks enable researchers to simultaneously explore the biomedical information of whole populations, and as such develop tailored therapies. So that when you share, we can care better.



You are unique

And you deserve unique care. Thanks to advances in clinical and computational research, ‘one size fits all’ is no longer the dogma in health care. Medicine gets personal: tailored diagnosis, dedicated therapy. Unique, just like you.




ATCG: it’s your story

This is 0.003% of your DNA; ATCG: it’s your story
Your DNA tells more than you would expect from just 4 letters. And your story is a valuable story. Genomic researchers are working hard to unravel what your genes tell about your health and the treatments that suit you best. But your story is also a private story. No reading without your consent.

Dit project onderzoekt de ontwikkeling van een ‘Super Coach’-app voor mensen met obesitas of zwaarlijvigheid. Deze app zal volledig geautomatiseerd alle relevante gewichtsbepalende factoren monitoren en gebruiken om een gepersonaliseerd advies te genereren. Op die manier worden gebruikers ondersteund bij het realiseren van duurzaam gewichtsverlies.
