Take a breath: development of a new lung adhesive for severe COPD patients

With Prof. Marleen Kamperman (FSE) and Dr. Simon D. Pouwels (UMCG), along with Prof. Dirk-Jan Slebos and Prof. Janette Burgess.

After finishing my master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences, I started my HTRIC PhD project in September 2022. The main focus of my research is developing and testing a ‘glue’, which is intended to seal the damaged parts of the lungs of COPD patients and thus improve the capacity of the functional parts. With this research, I hope to contribute to an improved quality of life for COPD patients.
