Welcome to the website of the Mechanobiology and Tissue Engineering group at KU Leuven. Headed by Professor Hans Van Oosterwyck, we are part of the Biomechanics Division in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

We are interested in understanding the role of mechanics in angiogenesis. From the cellular level to the tissue level, we use both computational and experimental approaches to discern the forces involved from endothelial cell migration, vessel formation, and all the way to bone healing.

Feel free to explore this site, learn about us and our research. You can find a summary of our research interests and current work, our facilities and research network, our publications, and also how we are involved with the scientific community in Leuven and elsewhere!
