What Alumni say

Lothar Steidler

"The most important contribution of VIB to my career is that its directors and staff believed in our technology and founded Actogenix. Without this company, I might have become a professor in Ireland or something else somewhere else, who knows."

Valerie Vanhooren

"I have been trained at VIB where translational research and entrepreneurship are key values. The combination of scientific excellence and a clear business strategy is essential for leading ONA Therapeutics."
