Hanne Biesmans

PhD student

Hanne Biesmans received her Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences at Hasselt University (Belgium) in 2017.

In 2020, she graduated with a Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences at Hasselt University (Belgium) with a double specialization. She specialized in Molecular Mechanisms in Health and Disease and Bioelectronics and Nanotechnology. For her master thesis, In situ electropolymerization of conducting polymers for bioelectronic applications, she joined the Organic Bioelectronics group at LOE under supervision of Daniel Simon.

In September 2020, she started as a PhD student in the Organics Bioelectronics group. She works on the eNeuroPharma project and aims to understand more about the behavior of organic electronics at the biological interface.

Explaining the research
