Success Story

Oncurious translates VIB research into potential new cancer treatments

Medulloblastoma is a rare, life-threatening brain tumor that mainly affects children. Research carried out by Peter Carmeliet (VIB-KU Leuven) and colleagues provided the basis for a new potential drug: TB-403. 

Grand Challenges Program

The VIB Grand Challenges projects are by default induced by ‘reverse’ translational (applied research, not basic research) questions and issues that are triggered in daily practice and work backwards starting from the patient or crop.
