Glenn Vanluchene is a Ph.D. student working together with Prof. Dr. Richard Hoogenboom since doing his master thesis in 2013 on the subject of making golg nanoparticles thermoresponsive by using RAFT-polymerized oligoethylene-acrylates, guided by Dr. Samarendra Maji and in a cooperation with Prof. Dr. Bruno De Geest. In 2015, a Baekeland-mandate was granted for a Ph.D. project to develop reagents for blood analysis.

Research project:

Glenn's research focuses on developing polystyrene-based nanoparticles used as reagents for the detection of biomarkers in biological fluid samples using bioconjugate techniques.
