VIB is inviting applications for Principal Investigator positions

VIB - LogoThe Inflammation Research Center (IRC) is a research department of VIB and Ghent University (UGent) with a scientific and supporting staff of more than 200 people. The eight existing research groups within the IRC are investigating the molecular mechanisms of inflammation in inflammatory and structural cells of various organs (skin, gut, lung, liver and brain). Research is specifically focused on dendritic cell biology, NF-κB activation, endoplasmic reticulum stress, cell death pathways and biotechnology development. The IRC researchers are located in a spacious state-of-the-art building and we have access to high-end supporting core facilities, both in-house and in the context of VIB and Ugent. The IRC seeks applicants for two positions of Principal Investigator.

Researchers at UGent and VIB discovere potential novel treatment against septic shock

VIB - LogoUGent - logo

Septic shock is caused by excessive and systemic reaction of the entire body against infectious agents, in most cases of bacterial origin. The number of deaths by septic shock in intensive care units is very high and is still increasing, despite numerous large scale clinical trials. Scientists of VIB and UGent, supervised by Peter Vandenabeele, demonstrated in a mouse study that a potential novel treatment for sepsis may consist of the simultaneous neutralization of two harmful cytokines in the blood circulation.
