More information about Joachim van Guyse


Joachim F. R. Van Guyse studied Chemistry at Ghent University in Belgium. After graduating in 2014, he pursued a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Richard Hoogenboom at Ghent University, where his work focused primarily on the development of synthetic methodologies to obtain new functional poly(2-oxazoline) and poly(acrylamide)-based materials with biomedical potential, in addition to the development of supramolecular materials.

After obtaining his Ph.D. in 2019, he joined the group of Prof. Kazunori Kataoka at the Innovation Center of NanoMedicine (ICONM) in Kawasaki, Japan, where he developed poly(2-oxazoline)s block-copolypeptides for biomedical applications, more specifically for promoting therapeutic efficacy and/or gene delivery. In 2020, he was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) for the development of polymer-micelle carriers for mRNA delivery.

In 2022, he was appointed as assistant professor at Leiden university, where his research focusses on the development of polymers for the delivery of biotherapeutics. So far, Joachim Van Guyse has contributed over 30 research papers, book chapters and patents covering a broad range of topics, including polymer chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, surface functionalization and nanomedicine.
