Practical matters How to find us dr. G. (Gert) Luurtsema

Research interests

The research of Gert Luurtsema, associate professor at the UMCG, is 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 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles in high ranking journals and scientific textbooks. He was guest editor of the journals Current Pharmaceutical Design and Contrast Media & Molecular Imaging.
