Welcome to the Brussels Center for Redox Biology

The Brussels Center For Redox Biology results from a collaboration between the groups of Joris Messens at the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB Structural Biology Research Center, Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Jean-François Collet at the de Duve Institute (Université Catholique de Louvain). Both laboratories are in Brussels, located 2 km apart from each other. The Center benefits from a combined expertise in biochemistry, structural biology and microbiology.

We investigate proteins that are involved in oxidative stress signaling, thiol-based catalysis mechanisms and oxidative protein folding. We want to understand the complex networks of interactions induced under cellular redox stress.
