Biologist from the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium
E-mail: laurent.jaeken @ hotmail.com
Trained as a
cell biologist by the late Albert Claude (Nobel price of medicine 1974) in the
Laboratory of Cell Biology, Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. PhD (1977) on a study of the
three-dimensional structure of regenerating rat liver cells by means of serial
sectioning electron microscopy. Publications on this subject in International Journal of Cell Biology together
with Denise Thinès-Sempoux in the period
Docent of Biochemistry and Biophysics in the Department of Applied Engineering of the Karel de Grote Hogeschool University College, Salesianenlaan 30, B-2660, Antwerp, Belgium, from 1977-2010.
Retired since 2010. Regular contact with Vladimir Matveev since 2011.
Studying the controversy between membrane-(pump)-theory and
Ling's association-induction hypothesis,
particularly in view of the coherence of life.
Publications on this subject since 2006.
