Laboratory of Pathophysiological and Nutritional Biochemistry (LBPN)
Faculty of Medicine | Erasme Campus
The laboratory principally investigates the expression and role of aquaporins in salivary glands, as well as in other organs, under physiological and
pathophysiological conditions. In addition, the laboratory also investigates the expression and role of ghrelin and ghrelin receptors in organs under various
pathophysiological conditions. For these purposes, the laboratory combines the use of cell and animal models, as well as various high-performance
biochemical, pharmacological, molecular biology and cell biology methodologies.
