Description
Proteomics & biopharmaceutical protein production- and delivery techniques. Protein Technologies Ghent is a consortium of research groups from UGent and VIB, each with a long-standing reputation of expertise in their respective fields. Centered around facilitating biopharmaceutical moiety discovery and development, the consortium integrates the assembled know-how from its members to accelerate the process of developing novel therapies against e.g. viral infections, microbial antibiotics resistance and cancer. These efforts inherently go hand-in-hand with the development of new supporting technologies. The consortium aims to grant access to these high-end solutions for other public institutions and the biotech & pharma-industry in Belgium and beyond. We do this by investing actively in the development of these assets into products that live up to industry-standards and subsequently offering integrated services to our network, or out-licensing the technology overall.
