Prof. Panos Ntziachristos took over the task of running the NEXT_LEVEL project at Ghent University.
Prof. Ntziachristos is a CRIG group leader, works at Department of Biomolecular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Ghent University. His research program comprises related inquiries regarding post-translational and epigenetic aspects of leukemia biology and how they control drug resistance.
More recently, he has focused on deubiquitination and the effect of the process on large biochemical complexes, such as the splicing machinery.(more…)
On 30 December 2022 Professor Pieter Van Vlierberghe – NEXT_LEVEL project PI from Ghent University passed away at the age of only 42 years. With his much too early death, the scientific community not only lost an outstanding researcher and internationally leading expert in the molecular biology of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), but also an enthusiastic teacher and impressive personality. We are deeply moved by this loss. Goodbye our friend…
