Edith Oyen

I graduated in 2015 as Bioengineer from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). During my master thesis, I did research on peptide hydrogels for controlled-release drug delivery. This was a joint project with the Research Group of Organic Chemistry (ORGC), where I designed and synthesized new hexapeptide hydrogelators. The materials were characterized within FYSC by dynamic rheometry.

Currently, I am continuing my master thesis work as a PhD student, funded by Research Foundation Flanders (FWO).
