Welcome to the
Center for Redox Biology
The Brussels Center for Redox Biology was founded in 2006 by Jean-François Collet and Joris Messens. Today, it results from a strong collaboration between the research groups of Joris Messens (VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology), Jean-François Collet (de Duve Institute, Université Catholique de Louvain), and Frank Van Breusegem (VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology). The Center benefits from a combined expertise in biochemistry, structural biology, plant biology and microbiology.
We investigate proteins and pathways that are involved in redox signaling and oxidative protein folding. We want to understand the complex networks of interactions induced to survive cellular oxidative stress.
