The Institute Born-Bunge is a research group affiliated with the University of Antwerp - UA (Belgium).The IBB focuses at a better integration and correlation of fundamental, clinical and neuropathological data concerning neurological conditions employing molecular genetics, biochemistry, experimental analyses of behavioural alterations and computational neurosciences.The IBB Biobank is a mutual initiative of the research units of the IBB department of Neurology that is based upon the original brain bank. The primary research projects of the different laboratories of the IBB study includes Alzheimers disease and related conditions, Parkinsons disease, frontotemporal dementias, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, epilepsy, peripheral neuropathies and muscle disorders. It comprises of various research groups and laboratories like Laboratory for Neuromuscular Pathology, Laboratory of Neurobiology, Laboratory of Neurogenetics, Laboratory of Neurochemistry and Behavior, Laboratory of Theoretical NeuroBiology and Neuroengeneering and Laboratory of Cardiovascular Research. All the researchers from various divisions work together, to promote the current advancements in the field of research. Scientists with fundamental orientations and research topics are necessary to further the knowledge of human disorders; they already occupy a significant place in the laboratories of the Institute Born-Bunge. It is however equally important to have physicians working with patients, defining the clinical problems and actively interacting with their fellow scientists in order to apply results of research to clinical fields. UniversitairZiekenhuisAntwerpen, ZNA Middelheim and ZNA HogeBeuken are the official partners of Institute Born-Bunge. IBB is a nonprofit organization and contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Donations to the Institute Born-Bunge help fund scientific research grants.
