Universiteit Maastricht

Institute for Technology inspired regenerative medicine (MERLN)
Department of Complex Tissue Regeneration (CTR)

The department holds a prominent international position in the regeneration of vascular, bone and cartilage tissue. CTR was also active in skin regeneration, and most recently it became very active in the generation of regenerative medicine strategies for peripheral nerve repair. The groups’ efforts focus on development of scaffolds, improvement of cell- and growth factor-based tissue engineering, design of high-throughput screening methods and bioreactors with the goal of improving methods for complex tissues and organ regeneration.

The Department of Toxicogenomics represents one of Europe’s leading research teams in the domain of toxicogenomics. Our work emphasizes on in vitro approaches for developing alternatives to current animal toxicity tests, as well as on studying gene-environment interactions in human volunteers, in environmentally exposed groups and patients. The Department of Toxicogenomics is chaired by Prof. Jos Kleinjans and counts 30 scientific employees.

Université libre de Bruxelles

The laboratory of Sabine Costagliola at ULB was the first to produce functional thyroid cells from mESC. Dr. Costagliola has a tenured government position with an independent laboratory at ULB and she is a highly respected investigator in the field of the thyroid, more specifically as it pertains to thyroid embryonic development and signalling. Her work on the TSH receptor and the generation of fully functional thyroid tissue derived from mESC able to rescue thyroid function in hypothyroid mice, is particularly pertinent to WP3 of this application.

University College Dublin, National University Of Ireland

The Pennington biomedical proteomics research group in the UCD Conway Institute has extensive experience of protein discovery in the context of mammalian cell biology and human disease pathology. Their proteomics expertise is directed towards the application of integrated omics data to the identification of (i) functionally significant pathways and networks in diseases through analysis of physiologically relevant perturbations using in vitro cell line systems and (ii) protein biomarkers that support the prediction of responses and stratification of patients from analysis of human clinical material. Expertise in protein biomarkers extends to the development of multiplexed targeted quantitative protein assays.
