Eindhoven University of Technology

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Bio-Organic Chemistry group

As of September 2016 prof. Jan van Hest holds the chair of Bio-organic Chemistry at Eindhoven University of Technology. The group’s focus is to develop well-defined compartments for nanomedicine and artificial cell research. Using a combination of techniques from polymer science to protein engineering, well-defined carriers and scaffolds are developed for application in e.g. cancer treatment, immunology and ophthalmology.
