The Laboratory of Biophysics (BIP) engages in research of the physical aspects of life processes and teaching of the fundamentals of physics and biophysics and their application in the life sciences. The research of BIP relies on both optical and magnetic resonance techniques.
BIP is a dynamic international team comprising around 10 staff members, 15 PhD students and post-docs. More information on our team can be found at http://www.bip.wur.nl/UK/
. BIP is embedded in the BioMolecular Sciences cluster and participates in the MicroSpectroscopy Research Facility and the MAGNEtic resonance research FacilitY of Wageningen university & Research.
The Organic Chemistry group (www.orc.wur.nl) constitutes a large, interdisciplinary research team involved in teaching and research on organic chemistry, with an emphasis on surface-based reactivity, click reactions and bioconjugation chemistry. Our group excels in the field and aims to continue to do so. The team consists of around 25 PhD students and postdocs, a permanent staff of 7 technical employees, three part-time professors with external expertise, 5 assistant and associate professors, and one chair (many of whom have received highly competitive national and ERC personal grants). The new laboratory is extremely well-equipped with a unique set of analysis instruments for bio-organic chemistry. In addition to this, our lab is part of the Biomolecular Sciences cluster, and the embedding within Wageningen University & Research adds ample biological context for our chemical tools. Currently ca. 2600 students/year take part in one or more Organic Chemistry study elements provided by our faculty.
