Who we are

BIOART is a training network. Its aim is to develop innovative (bio)-artificial devices for the treatment of kidney and liver diseases.

The project gives 11 PhD students and 5 Post-doc researchers the opportunity to carry out individual projects and gain experience by working abroad in partner academic institutions and companies.

What BIOART is about

One line of research focuses on improving the ability of artificial and bioartificial kidney devices to remove uremic toxins from blood. To this end, 2 prototypes will be developed. A second line of research focuses on developing prototype bio-reactors ensuring the viability and functionality of liver cells.
