At the end of last week, the FNRS granted new funding for major equipment, Télévie research projects and new mandates. The zebrafish platform receives funding to improve its equipment and the cyclotron platform will improve the measurement capabilities of the 7TMRI. 14 researchers are awarded a new mandate and 10 get renewal. And finally, some twenty projects are financed by Télévie. 

Thanks to new genomic techniques, the Animal Genomics Unit, led by Michel Georges, in collaboration with the Laboratory of Gastroenterology led by Edouard Louis (GIGA-Medical Genomics) has been able to refine its work to identify the genes responsible for Crohn’s disease. This study, published today in Nature Communications, suggests new potential targets for the development of new treatments.
