The VIB Biotech Day in Leuven attracted approximately 4,400 visitors, exploring the importance of brain and cancer research carried out at the Flemish institute and by other biotech players in the region. More than 300 collaborators brought the diversified programme to life, by organising lab tours, lectures, a biotech café, film projections, a theatre play and “kids only” activities.
