Patrick Wagner's Biography

Patrick Wagner, Professor, Soft-Matter Physics and Biophysics Section, Departement Natuurkunde en Sterrenkunde, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven

Patrick Wagner received a Ph.D. in physics in 1994 at TU Darmstadt (Germany) and was postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven (Belgium) until 2001 when he was appointed as a professor for biophysics at Hasselt University. In 2014, he returned to KU Leuven as a full professor for bio-functional surfaces and sensors. P. Wagner has received several grants and distinctions, including a Marie-Curie Fellowship of the European Union and a Methusalem Fellowship of the Flemish Government. He was president of the Belgian Physical Society in 2006-2007, serves as guest editor of the annual issue ‘Engineering of Functional Interfaces’ in Physica Status Solidi A since 2008, and became editor-in-chief of the newly founded Elsevier journal Physics-in-Medicine in 2016. Regarding novel biosensing technologies, P. Wagner is one of the inventors of the label-free heat-transfer method HTM with a wide variety of bioanalytical applications such as DNA-mutation analysis and cell identification.

The heat-transfer method HTM is a novel, label-free transducer principle, which allows detecting point mutations in DNA literally with just a heat-source and two thermometers. Other HTM applications include the detection of cancer cells, bacteria, neurotransmitters, and proteins.
