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 first blog.
Maarten Bakker published an article about MRI visualization of injectable UPy hydrogels by using supramolecular contrast agent labels, together with collaborators from the University Medical Center Utrecht and SyMO-Chem B.V..

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.
Sergio Spaans, together with other researchers of the DankersLab, and collaborators from SyMO-chem and the TU/e, published his work on supramolecular surface functionalization with catechols for the improvement of cell-material interactions in the journal Biomaterials Science. The article is featured on the cover of the special issue for Emerging Investigators 2017. The full article can be found here
Patricia Dankers, along with 2 others from the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems at the TU/e, was awarded a prestigious Vidi grant from the NWO. The research made possible by this grant will focus on bestowing biomaterials with increased bioactivity for better communication with the human body. More information, also on the other awardees can be found on the website of the Cursor and the TU/e
A group of researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology, UMC Utrecht, the Hubrecht Institute and Maastricht University, led by prof. Carlijn Bouten, received a subsidy of 18.8 million euros for research on ‘Materials-Driven Regeneration’. Researchers from the DankersLab are involved in the gravitation research via the design and synthesis of new biomedical materials.
