Jan Gettemans is full professor at the Department of Biomolecular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. His main focus is research on nanobodies (single domain antibodies) and their implementation in a diverse array of (bio)medical settings.
Tom Van de Wiele is a full professor at the Center for Microbial Ecology and Technology from Ghent University. The research emphasis of his team is the study of host-microbe interactions through the development of innovative in vitro enabling technologies that mimic specific microenvironments of the human body. The generated knowledge complements in vivo observations by providing mechanistic data. It also offers the opportunity to conduct mode of action studies and design novel preventive and therapeutic strategies to steer the microbiome in a health promoting direction through diet, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and live biotherapeutic products.
Emmeric Tanghe is a part-time professor at Ghent University and imec. His field of research is computational neuroscience. His group builds biophysical models of neurons and neuronal networks that are modulated by neurostimulation techniques (electromagnetic, optogenetic, ultrasonic). The goal is to find stimulation paradigms and protocols that, to a certain degree, can reverse the pathologic firing behavior caused by neurological diseases. We collaborate with preclinical research groups for in-vitro and in-vivo validation of our models.
Hendrik Feys is a Principal Investigator at the Belgian Red Cross Flanders Transfusion Research Center. The center has a research focus on blood derived products and their applicability in regenerative medicine. Hendrik is a visiting professor at the Department of Diagnostics Sciences at Ghent University.
Prof. Jeroen Missinne is part-time professor at Ghent University and also employed at CMST, an imec-affiliated lab at Ghent University. His research involves laser fabrication technology, optical sensors and flexible/stretchable photonics and electronics.
Frank Speleman is professor at the Department of Biomolecular Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. His main focus is the study of perturbed gene regulatory processes in paediatric cancer, more specifically neuroblastoma and T-ALL.
Former Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery and Burn Center at the Ghent University Hospital.
Richard Hoogenboom is full professor at Ghent University and heads the supramolecular chemistry group that focuses on the development of advanced functional materials.
Prof. Dr. Annemieke Madder is heading the Organic and Biomimetic Chemistry Research Group specialized in the design and synthesis of modified peptides and nucleic acids and methods for their conjugation and labeling.
