  • (Orthogonal) chemistry
  • Biosensor development
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • Diffusion Ordered Spectroscopy


Jan Bart studied Molecular Life Sciences with a specialization in Physical Chemistry at Wageningen University. During his bachelor thesis he worked at the department of Organic Chemistry on surface chemistry and surface-initiated polymerization. He did his master thesis at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry and Colloid sciences, and worked on the synthesis and surface modification of colloids. He did  a six-month internship at the University of Florida’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department in the Soft Living Active Matter (SLAM) lab of Dr. T.E. Angelini, where he worked on investigating the effects of surface rigidity and patterning on collective cell migration speeds and patterning. During this internship, he also worked on the characterization of an ultra-tough, elastomer-like double network hydrogel. After graduating, he started his PhD in 2014 with prof. A.H. Velders at the BioNanoTechnology department of Wageningen University and at the Leiden University Medical Center in the Interventional Imaging Lab of dr. F.W.B. van Leeuwen. During his PhD, he will be working on the development of a sensitive and selective, nanoparticle-in-solution based, sensor system for the simultaneous detection of two enzymes.
