Laboratory of Cell Death Research and Therapy

Welcome to the website of the Cell Death Research & Therapy lab. Our lab is a member of the department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium).

Our lab focuses on studying dying cells mainly in the context of cancer biology and cancer therapeutics with broad focus on cell-autonomous pro-death signaling and studying dying cells within a tissue/tumor-context (where they cross-talk with immune  system and stromal cells). Our specific focus is on immunogenic cell death, endoplasmic reticulum stress signaling and autophagy signaling.
