FNR CORE scheme funds three research projects at LIH
The Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) supports multi-annual thematic research programmes with its central funding instrument CORE. One research project submitted by LIH and another two developed in partnership with the Luxembourg Institute for Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and the University of Luxembourg, respectively, have been selected for this valuable third party funding by international expert committees. They shall start in early 2020.
Group Leader in Bioinformatics - AC0120
In 2019 the LIH established the Quantitative biology unit (QBU). The QBU conducts research in different technology-driven areas and provides technology services for the LIH and the Luxembourgish research community. The QBU is involved in many multi-omics studies with LIH or research groups from other Luxembourgish partners centered on cancer, immunologic and infectious diseases. Therefore, a wide range of technologies are used including next-generation RNA and DNA sequencing, metabolomics, discovery and targeted proteomics, cytometric and mass-cytometric analysis on a single-cell basis.

Understanding how diffuse gliomas evolve
The GLASS Consortium, involving Prof Simone P. Niclou from LIH, aims to characterise diffuse glioma cells both before and after therapy to find out how they change and why this form of malignant brain cancer is so difficult to treat. Initial findings published in Nature in November 2019 provide a foundation for further research and the opportunity for the clinical community to predict the effectiveness of newly developed treatments.
