Patrick Wagner's Biography



Patrick Wagner, Professor, Soft-Matter Physics and Biophysics Section, 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.

Detection of Cells and Bacteria Using Surface-Imprinted Polymer Receptors

In this presentation I will first give an overview on the heat-transfer method HTM as a novel biodetection principle and on synthetic whole-cell receptors created by surface imprinting of polymers. Combining both elements allows for the sensitive and surprisingly selective detection of cells and micro-organisms down to comparatively low concentrations. Also instrumental aspects and the recognition mechanism between cells and the polymer imprints will be discussed.
