Eye-openers is a platform where scientists in one minute tell about their research, what is fascinating about it and what their goals are.
In the June edition of C2W, Dutch magazine for chemists and professionals in life sciences, Patricia Dankers talked about using our synthetic biomaterials for tissue regeneration in the article “Fix het weefsel”(Fix the tissue). She highlights here our work on hydrogels specifically about investigating their bioactivation and mechanical properties. You can read the article on […]
On Wednesday 1st of April, Patricia Dankers and Dan Jing Wu were featured in the program “Knappe Koppen”, where scientific experts provide answers to everyday questions, on NPO. In this episode the question was discussed if laboratory animals were still needed. After elaboration on the creation of organoids as disease models to partially replace the […]
On the 6th of January, Geert van Almen was invited to the talkshow Na Het Nieuws as a guest. This live talkshow discusses and elaborates topics of the news. This first new episode of the season discussed the recent trends in the news and looked ahead to their roles in 2030. Geert discussed the recent […]
Last week was the Dutch Design week where the TU/e was present with the drivers of change. This programs mentality was to show that today’s technology and its role in society is becoming increasingly complex and in a diverse and rapidly changing world, engineers of the future need to consider society’s relationship with technology and […]
On Tuesday 22 October, Dan Jing Wu was featured in Science Café ‘Mens 2.0’ DDW Special as a panel member. She was interviewed about our research with biomaterials and future perspective of regenerative medicine. An interesting evening from human design to designing human (and of course regenerative medicine using biomaterials). A summary of what the […]
Professor Patricia Dankers gave a 2 hour lecture at Science Café in Deventer on 9 October about “How to create living materials” featuring our work in the group. A short summary of what the lecture was about can be found on their website (in Dutch): Weefselreparatie met plastic: synthetische materialen met biologische eigenschappen?
Patricia Dankers received the Journal of Polymer Science Innovation Award during a PMSE Symposium at the ACS in San Diego, August 2019. The prize was given to her by prof. Craig Hawker after a very interesting symposium. A summary about the award and article about this years winner Patricia dankers can be found on their […]
The research of Dan Jing Wu on temperature-responsive biomaterials that can contract and relax on their own was featured on Business News Radio (BNR) in their Science Today item. On these biomaterials cardiac cells can be cultured and stimulated through growth factors and other queues. The goal of this research is to in the end […]
Business News Radio (BNR) highlighted in their Science Today item our research on the development of a hydrogel which incapsulates anti-cancer drugs targeting peritoneal cancer. These gels are studied by Peter-Paul Fransen, who was interviewd by BNR, and Geert van Almen in collaboration with Maastricht UMC+ and Catarina Hospital Eindhoven, with sponsoring from KWF (Dutch […]
