Collaborations

 

 

MAIN COLLABORATION: Prof. Louis Havekes

 

 

Our research group has a long standing and extensive collaboration with the group of Prof. Louis Havekes from the TNO-PG Gaubius Institute in Leiden the Netherlands. Their expertise consists of an extensive array of biochemical and physiological techniques to dissect the lipoprotein metabolism in vitro and in vivo in mouse models. This has proven extremely successful in combination with our expertise in molecular biology.
