Christophe Stove
Laboratory of Toxicology, Ghent University

Since February this year I have taken up a tenure-track position as a professor in Toxicology at the Laboratory of Toxicology at the Faculty of Pharmacy, Ghent University, Belgium. I graduated as a pharmacist in 1999 and obtained my PhD at the Faculty of Medicine of Ghent University, being active in the field of fundamental cancer research, studying the role of growth factors and cell adhesion molecules in melanoma and breast cancer. After having pursued a molecular biology-oriented postdoctoral fellowship at the Faculty of Sciences, my career took a turn when I returned to my home Faculty in 2007. One of my current research focuses -with different research lines running- is the development of alternative strategies for the GC-MS and LC-MS/MS-based measurement of endogenous molecules and drugs (of abuse) in biological matrices, with particular interest for the use of dried blood spots.
