IRIBHM is part of the Medical School of the Univerité Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and one of the largest research structures of the university.
Founded in
the nineteen sixties with the aim of applying an interdisciplinary approach to the study of thyroid pathophysiology, the Institute has thrived over the
years into a number of independent groups with diversifying research interests. Presently, about 130 researchers and technicians are working in the Institute
over a range of subjects encompassing signal transduction, development, neuroscience, and cancer, using cell and molecular biology approaches. Staff
researchers include physicians, physicists, bioinformaticians, (bio)chemists and biologists. The activities of IRIBHM are mainly taking place on the Erasme campus
of ULB, in the suburb of Brussels, although the Institute also contributes to the Institut de Biologie Moléculaire et Médicale (IBMM) on the Gosselies
campus. The heavy equipment is common to the whole Institute and often shared with other groups of the campus as technical platforms. This includes
genomics, proteomics, transgenesis, FACS and confocal microscopy facilities.
