He has a master degree in pharmaceutical sciences, holds a doctoral degree in experimental in vitro toxicology, is a European registered toxicologist and a trained European chemical risk assessor. His research focuses on 2 topics, namely (i) the study of mechanisms of liver toxicity to be used for in vitro modelling purposes as well as for prediction of chemical-induced liver toxicity, and (ii) the study of connexins and pannexins as drug targets and diagnostic biomarkers of liver disease. He acquired over 20 million € external funding, of which most as promoter and a large portion originating from the European Horizon 2020 excellent science pillar, namely 2 grants (i.e. starting grant and proof-of-concept grant) from the European Research Council, 1 grant from the Future and Emerging Technologies program and 1 grant from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions program, as well as national excellent research funding, including from the Flemish Methusalem program and a São Paulo excellence chair grant.
