Research interests

Gert Luurtsema meets the UMCG requirements for Principal Investigator. His research focused on a broad range of topics, ranging from tracer development to validation of clinical imaging applications. With support of NWO-STW funding, he has accomplished a research line on imaging of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) integrity in relation to brain disorders and drug delivery. Besides this, he is supervising 7 PhD students, 5 master students and 3 postdocs. Currently, he is (co-)author of more than 85 peer-reviewed scientific articles in high ranking journals and scientific textbooks (h-index 27). He was guest editor of the journals Current Pharmaceutical Design and Contrast Media & Molecular Imaging.
