The overarching aim of our research is to discover the genetic variations that drive human disease, and to understand how and why they do so. We study a variety of developmental disorders of the cardiovascular and skeletal systems, as well as certain cancers.
All of our research begins with samples obtained from patients, and we aim to go the full circle: from bed to bench-side and back to bed, providing patients with viable and tangible knowledge-based improvements in their health-care.
Help us develop new treatments.
From 40€ your donation is tax deductible.

The de Duve Institute is a multidisciplinary biomedical research institute hosting several research laboratories of the Faculty of Medicine of the UCLouvain, as well as the Brussels branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research.
The de Duve Institute is based on three key principles:
- priority to fundamental research and freedom of researchers,
- special attention to the medical benefits that may result from fundamental discoveries,
- multidisciplinary collaboration in an environment of skills, techniques and equipment.
The money raised during the crowdfunding campaign will allow the Institute to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and foresee grants to recruit exceptional scientists. By donating you are accelerating research.
