VIB scientists overview

Proteomics

  • Patrizia Agostinis Lab

    ​“We are studying cell death and resistance pathways in tumors, how they impact the interface between cancer cells and stromal cells, modify the tumor microenvironment and anticancer therapy responses. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to combating cancer by translating molecular/cellular knowledge into therapeutic possibilities”​
