About VIB
VIB, the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, is an entrepreneurial research institute. Over 1000 scientists and technicians in 65 research groups conduct research in a wide range of life science domains. VIB’s main objective is to understand the mechanisms that are responsible for normal development such as angiogenesis, apoptosis, plant growth and development, and diseases such as cancer, inflammation, neurodegeneration and haemophilia.

Established in 1996, VIB has Research Departments at four Flemish universities: Ghent University, the K.U.Leuven, The University of Antwerp, and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Within its different research departments, VIB has world class research groups in the fields of molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, structural biology, systems biology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology and proteomics.
In addition to biomedical research on human diseases, VIB scientists use yeast, Drosophila, Xenopus, Arabidopsis, poplar, zebrafish and mice as model systems to address fundamental questions in the field of molecular life sciences.

VIB also pursues an active technology transfer policy. VIB’s innovative research and inventions are protected by patents. These are either actively licensed out to national and international companies, or form the basis for setting up new bio high-tech companies.

There are many applications of gene technology. VIB develops scientifically founded information and documentation on gene technology and its social applications. VIB communicates biotechnology related information to specific target groups such as politicians, press, youngsters and a general public consisting of non-specialists.
