Proteomics is the scientific field that studies proteins. While this might sound like a straightforward goal, it actually comprises dozens of techniques that each focuses on another aspect of this extremely complex molecular landscape. Belgium can proudly present a very rich selection of academic labs that together cover a very large part of the proteomics field. Below we summarize these labs by their PI’s name and the university where they reside. Each lab gives a few keywords summarizing their specific expertise. Just look for the technique/PTM/organism/… you use/study and you will find your perfect collaborator!
