Research activities

Véronique’s research activity is mainly focused on deciphering the mechanisms of action of potential anti-cancer compounds from natural origin. Indeed, Nature remains the first source of novel drug leads for anti-cancer purposes with ~60% of the drugs currently available actually inspired by Nature (Cragg and Newman, JNP 2016).

The evaluation and understanding of the cellular and molecular effects of such compounds is carried out in Véronique’s team, notably thanks to the use of different imaging tools such as live cell imaging.

Véronique is also developing this approach to evaluate the toxicity of compounds for other medical or nutraceutical applications. She leads a group in the frame of the ULB Cancer Research Centre (U-CRC)
