Bio-Photonic Research Group

Research at the Bio-Photonic Research Group (BPRG), headed by prof. Kevin Braeckmans, focuses on the development of biophotonic methods for biomedical diagnostics and nanomedicine mediated drug delivery.

Research at the BPRG is performed in close collaboration with the Ghent Research Group on Nanomedicines, and is structured according to the following 4 themes:

1.    Photoporation for delivery of drugs and nanomaterials in cells and biofilms (ERC Consolidator Grant)
2.    Development of Advanced Light Microscopy methods for functional imaging
3.    Unravelling biological barriers to nanomedicines
4.    Biomedical diagnostics
