Prof. Dr. Stefaan Soenen (°1983) has more than 10 years of experience on bio-nano interactions and biomedical use of nanomaterials. His research focuses on setting up novel methods for understanding how nanomaterials interact in a biological environment and to translate this knowledge into biomedical applications. His main interests lie in the development, validation and use of advanced optical imaging methods for rapid, in-depth analysis of bio-nano interactions and employing nanomaterials for anticancer purposes. He has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant (NanOnc) starting from 01/01/2018 on the use of cell-selective toxicity of nanomaterials and novel anticancer therapeutics.
