  • SUMMARY:
    Prof. Peter Dubruel was appointed Professor in Biomaterials at Ghent University in 2007. Since then, he has been heading the Polymer Chemistry and Biomaterials Group (PBM) at Ghent University.The research focus has been on the development and characterisation of polymers for biomedical applications with an emphasis on hydrogels. The laboratory has all facilities in house for developing and characterising various types of polymers. In 2008, the first 3D printer was installed at the PBM premises. The printing capabilities have expanded since then to more than 10 printers anno 2021. Research topics range from orthopaedic and cardiovascular over wound treatment and ocular to gene delivery. The work to date has led to over 250 papersin peer-reviewed journals (of which several in IF>10 jounals), 25 defended PhD and 10 patents. At present, the group is composed of 1 technical staff, 3 post-docs, 13 PhD and 9 master students. Since 2006, more than 10 post-docs worked within PBM. Every year, more than 3 master students teamed up with PBM. Since the start of his activities, the PBM group has been involved in many research projects, including European (FP6, FP7, Interreg, FWO bilateral), national (SBO, O&O, FWO) and regional (GOA, BOF, IOF) of which several as coordinator. Part of the work performed at PBM since the start in 2006 has resulted in launching the spin-off XPectInx on 3D printing inks in 2020 (http://xpect-inx.com/).
