Description and history

Campus Erasme Bulding C Campus Erasme Bulding C



The IRIBHM is a research institute of the Faculty of Medicine of the "Université libre de Bruxelles, Université d’Europe" (ULB). It was founded in the nineteen sixties by J.E. Dumont and A. Ermans with the aim to apply an interdisciplinary approach to the study of endocrinology and, in particular, the pathophysiology of the thyroid gland. Over the years, the Institute has thrived into a multiplicity of groups, totaling 150 people, with diversifying research interests, all related to the study of the transduction of biological signals (see : research themes). The Institute is staffed by researchers with diverse training, including physicians, physicists, (bio)chemists and biologists. The activities of the IRIBHM are taking place on two different campuses of the ULB: Campus Erasme in the suburb of Brussels and Campus Gosselies where it is part of the Institut de Biologie Moléculaire et Médicale (IBMM). The IRIBHM has privileged interactions with the Laboratory of Medical Genetics and the Laboratory of Neurophysiology.
