van Oijen, Antoine M. Distinguished Professor

ARC Laureate Fellow

  • Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health
  • School of Chemistry

Research Overview


  • Antoine van Oijen obtained his BSc and PhD degrees in the Netherlands, where he was trained as a physicist.  A growing fascination for biology resulted in him moving to the USA and establishing a research group at Harvard Medical School. Subsequently, he was appointed as full professor at Groningen University in the Netherlands where he established a thriving biophysics research program focused on the development of single-molecule visualization techniques and their applications in basic and applied science. Recently, he moved to the UOW and was awarded a prestigious Laureate Fellowship by the Australian Research Council to further develop biophysical approaches to visualize the molecular processes that define life.
