Infrastructure and expertise support

About this line of research

We are happy to share our materials (biosensor probes), expertise in O2, hypoxia, cellular nanothermometry and cell metabolism studies and your experiments in biofabrication and 3D (but also with 4D-5D) cell culture models.

We have ongoing collaborations with Medical Genetics UGent, Polymer Biomaterials Group Ghent (PBM) in the development of innovative biomaterials, Laboratory of Experimental Cancer Research (LECR), Ghent Additive Manufacturing Platform AUGENT and internationally.

Our expertise is also shared through participation in Ghent Light Microscopy Core, CRIG, GGIG and GATE consortia activities.
