In situ investigation of biochemical and nanocolloidal dynamics using fast optical nanoscopy: Video rate high resolution fluorescence microscopy in material science and biochemistry. KU Leuven
Nanomaterials are all around us. They are widely used as they show some extraordinary properties as catalysts (showing unexpected reactivity or needing less starting material), as additives to change properties of bulk materials (exhibiting luminescent properties like in quantum dots, or altering wetting behavior for self cleaning effect), biomedical applications for target drug delivery, potential investigation tool or new treatment ...
Application of advanced and diffusion based Magnetic Resonance techniques as a new tool to investigate nanoparticles and brain biochemistry Ghent University
This project aims at developping and applying diffuion NMR spectroscopy as research tool for in situ characterisation of colloidal dispersions of nanparticles and quantum semi-conductors. It also will initiate the integrated spectroscopic and imaging based magnetic resonance analyses of metabolic and physiologic profile of neuropathologies in selected animal models.
This projects aims at using computational methods to design novel symmetric proteins. While these proteins are interesting for investigating protein evolution and folding or improve protein design methods, the goal is to use them as building blocks to create innovative protein complexes with novel functionality. The work will be divided in several work packages each focusing on a unique application. First of all we will focus on the creation ...

Chemical reactivity from an ab initio molecular dynamics and Density Functional Theory perspective: Methodological aspects and applications in organic, inorganic and biochemistry Ghent University
This research is intended to combine the research areas of conceptual DFT and ab initio molecular dynamics with each other since such a combined approach can provide significant added value in the complex study of chemical reactivity. This comprises on the one hand a methodological section, and on the other hand a section with applications in organic, inorganic, and biochemistry. 4.3.1. METHODOLOGICAL ASPECTS Objective 1: Sampling of the ...
