KU Leuven is dedicated to education and research in nearly all fields. Its fifteen faculties offer education, while research activities are organized by the departments and research groups. These faculties and departments, in turn, are clustered into three groups: Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Engineering and Technology (SET), and Biomedical Sciences. Each of these groups has a doctoral school for its doctoral training programmes.

KU Leuven PhD student Apeksha Shapeti studies angiogenesis, the process by which new blood vessels grow from pre-existing ones. Now pay attention because angiogenesis research has important implications for cancer research and tissue engineering. Tumour cells, like healthy cells, need the oxygen and nutrients found in blood to survive. Understanding how a tumour’s environment causes blood vessels to grow could offer clues for how to modify the microenvironment to stop them growing. In a similar vein (sorry), angiogenesis research is vital to improving tissue engineering techniques. One of the major challenges in the field right now is that a synthetic scaffold needs to connect to the body’s circulatory system in order to be functional.
