Het team van BRIGHTcore

On May 26 VUB KTI will be present at Knowledge for Growth, Europe’s premier life sciences conference. At the common booth of TTO Flanders, together with the 4 other Flemish universities, VUB will highlight the interuniversity genomics laboratory BRIGHTcore, servicing both ULB and VUB as well as the university hospitals.


In this platform, heavy genomics equipment is centralized, IT infrastructure is made available and know-how is bundled to perform primary analysis of large genomic datasets. Genetic errors in DNA that lead to hereditary disorders or mutation patterns in tumors can be traced this way. BRIGHTcore focuses on diagnosis as well as experimental research.
