Job title: Post-Doctoral Researcher
Koen Breyne, PhD is currently Postdoctoral Researcher in Dr. Breakefield’s lab at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. After obtaining his Master’s degree in Biochemistry and Biotechnology, he received his PhD degree from The University of Ghent, Belgium in 2015. During his early Postdoctoral period at The University of Chicago, he acquired a substantial knowledge of Bacteriology, Oncology, and Immunology and developed extensive experience ranging from immunomodulation in preclinical animal models, single molecule localization in nanomaterials with Super-resolution microscopy to synthetic protein engineering. His research focusses on the comprehensive understanding of cell-cell interaction and applies these modes of communication as novel avenues for therapeutic intervention. He converts extracellular vesicles into non-viral delivery vectors for gene editing purposes and he establishes cutting-edge techniques to detect functional extracellular vesicle payload discharge into recipient cells.
