Sergio Spaans obtained the title of doctor by succesfully defending his PhD thesis, titled ‘Engineered Cardiac Microenvironments based on supramolecular biomaterials’, on Wednesday March 13th. Papers included in his thesis are Supramolecular surface functionalization via catechols for the improvement of cell-material interactions, A supramolecular platform stabilizing growth factors, and Mechanically robust electrospun hydrogel scaffolds crosslinked […]
Dan Jing Wu is one of two winners of FameLab at Eindhoven University of Technology and will go on to the national finals of FameLab. FameLab is an international science communication competition, where scientists are challenged to inspire people about their research.
Mani Diba has received the Rubicon grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to perform research in the group of Prof. Antonios Mikos at Rice University in Houston, TX, USA. Mani will combine his background in colloidal hydrogels with 3D printing technologies at the Center for Engineering Complex Tissues (https://cect.umd.edu) to develop new […]
Dan Jing Wu and prof. Patricia Dankers teamed up with artist Hongjie Yang in a project where science meets art. HeLa cells were cultured on 3D printed vases and stained blue, to create the Delft-blue appearance. Three replicas are shown in the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris as part of the exhibition ‘La fabrique du […]
Together with Maastricht UMC (prof. Nicole Bouvy) and Catherina Cancer Institute (prof. Ignace de Hingh), researchers from TU/e (prof. Patrica Dankers) were awarded a KWF research grant for the development of a new strategy to improve intraperitoneal chemotherapy for patients with peritoneal cancer. This funding gives the opportunity to start preclinical evaluation of an innovative […]
On Friday June 29th, Patricia Dankers celebrated her professorship with an inaugural lecture entitled ´Synthetische Biomaterialen, Natuurlijk!‘
Dan Jing Wu is one of the new Faces of Science, a program of the Royal Dutch Academy of Science. She will make blogs and vlogs about her research to show how it is to be a scientist and give a nice insight in everyday PhD-life. Visit her personal page, or go directly to her […]
Patricia Dankers gave a public lecture about creation of life during a special ‘Carnaval’ event at the ‘Keijologische Hogeskool’ in Helmond on February 9, 2018
On January 30th, Maarten Bakker successfully defended his PhD thesis, titled “Supramolecular Drug Delivery Systems: molecular engineering of carrier affinity”. Papers featured in his thesis include Multicomponent Supramolecular Polymers ad a Modular Platform for Intracellular Delivery, and Modular supramolecular ureidopyrimidinone polymer carriers for intracellular delivery.
Patricia Dankers and Bert Meijer participated in the NEMO Kennislink Live edition on ‘Kunnen we voor schepper spelen? Hoe de wetenschap leven probeert na te maken’. More information can be found on the website of Kennislink here.
