News: VLAG proposal granted

Good news! Our proposal “Probing submicron anisotropic food structures using single-nanoparticle diffusometry” has been granted by the Graduate School VLAG [link] allowing us to hire a new PhD student.

In close collaboration with Prof. John van Duyhhoven (Laboratory of Biophysics, Wageningen), Prof. Aldrik Velders (Laboratory of BioNanoTechnology, Wageningen) and Prof. Atze Jan van der Goot (Laboratory of Food Process Engineering, Wageningen), we aim to develop and utilise fluorescence-based assays to study scale-dependent structural anisotropy in biopolymeric gels and food materials. Building on our broad expertise on single-particle tracking and imaging, we hope to establish single-molecule techniques as a new toolkit in food-related research.
