Biophysics Research Group

Department of Physics and Astronomy


The Biophysics group at Ghent University, led by Nele Vandersickel, aims at solving problems in the field of cardiac electrophysiology. Cardiac arrhythmia still remains the number one cause of death in the world according to the World Health Organization and there is an urgent need for novel treatments.

Our vision is to integrate clinical and fundamental research on cardiac arrhythmia and electrophysiology. By connecting researchers with complementary expertise we create novel diagnostic tools based on fundamental knowledge, aiming to really improve the health of patients.
For this we perform computer simulation, analyze clinical and experimental data and combine these insights to unravel the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmia and propose new treatments.
