Research focus

The Gevaert lab focuses on the introduction of proteomic technologies to address challenging questions in life sciences. We try to understand why proteins are N-terminally acetylated, study the function of N-terminal proteoforms, and develop technologies to identify cytolysis proteins as disease proxies. In the VIB-UGent Center for Medical Biotechnology and in VIB, our diversified proteomic toolbox makes us preferred catalysts for joint research projects.
