Laboratorium voor Toxicologie en Farmacologie (KULeuven)
https://pharm.kuleuven.be/toxipharm
Het laboratorium voor Toxicologie en Farmacologie van de KU Leuven doet onderzoek naar de werking van lichaamsvreemde stoffen (toxines) en naar de veiligheidsaspecten en samenstelling van voedselproducten. Hiernaast voert het laboratorium op vraag van diverse parketten/rechtbanken in België forensische toxicologische analyses en onderzoek uit op biologische stalen (inclusief post-mortem) en in beslag genomen producten.

Met betrekking tot het mariene thema, focust het labo op de ontdekking en karakterisering van toxines (peptiden en kleine organische moleculen) die aanwezig zijn in de gifklieren of organen van mariene soorten zoals kwallen, zeeanemonen en Conus slakken. De onderzoeksgroep wenst zich hier in de toekomst verder voor in te zetten. Een uitdaging binnen deze context vormt het combineren van state-of-the-art analytische technieken (chromatografie, massaspectrometrie, sequentiëren) teneinde proteomica te linken met transcriptonomica en functionele studies (door elektrofysiologische analyses gebruik makend van een voltage-klem op gekloonde ionenkanalen en receptoren).

Het laboratorium voor Toxicologie en Farmacologie participeerde tevens binnen het MAREX-project (2010-2014 - EU KP7) dat als doel had mariene hulpbronnen te onderzoeken op bioactieve stoffen.
