Celebrating Women’s Achievements

on International Women’s Day

As we celebrate this International Women’s Day, we’re excited to highlight the incredible women researchers of the University of Antwerp Cell Death Signaling lab, led by Prof. Wim Vanden Berghe, Prof. Tom Vanden Berghe, and Prof. Andy Wullaert. Their research explores the complex molecular mechanisms underlying cell death processes in various diseases, offering hope for therapeutic advancements in conditions ranging from cancer to neurodegenerative disorders. This new lab is a recent fusion between the ferroptosis team (led by Prof. Tom Vanden Berghe), the epigenetics team (led by Prof. Wim Vanden Berghe) and the pyroptosis team (led by Prof. Andy Wullaert).
