Research Profile

Holger Grüllstudied chemistry in Cologne, Germany, where he obtained his PhD in 1996 in physical chemistry for research on interfacial phenomena in critical mixtures. After his PhD, Holger Grüll received a Feodor-Lynen Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Society and stayed from 1997 to 1999 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, Gaithersburg, USA), where he specialized on surface and interfacial phenomena in polymer thin films and biomimetic membranes. From 1999 to 2000, a post-doctorial stay followed at the Ben-Gurion University of Be’er Sheva, Israel, with research on dewetting phenomena in thin films and Langmuir-Blodgett layers. In 2000, Holger Grüll started at Philips Research in the area of molecular diagnostics. Since 2004, Holger Grüll is scientifically responsible for several research projects on new agents for molecular imaging and therapy.In 2007, Holger Grüll was appointed part-time professor in the group of  Biomedical NMR at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. His chair is focusing on development of new nanoconstructs for molecular imaging and therapy.
