PhD defense Pia Kröger
After 4 years working on the development of single-chain polymer nanoparticles, doctor Pia Kröger did a great job defending her research, congratulations!
Welcome back Leonie
A big welcome back to Leonie, who will be working on smart materials for ventricular assistance.
New book chapter
Rachel, Guoying and Jos published a chapter in Targeted Nanosystems for Therapeutic Applications: New Concepts, Dynamic Properties, Efficiency, and Toxicity, well done!
Jan-Willem did a great job defending his master thesis and was rewarded with a 9, congratulations!
Congratulations Teun on succesfully defending your bachelor thesis!
We are happy to announce granting of our proposed research to use silicon nanoparticles in MR imaging of the brain to better understand brain diseases. This project is funded by Health Holland and Alzheimer NL, and supported by Crossbeta Biosciences and Syncom, and we are very much looking forward to getting started on this project.
Peter did an excellent job defending his thesis today, congratulations!
Great job Naomi on completing your Masters with such high grades, and we are glad to welcome you back soon as our new PhD candidate!
Congratulations Muhabbat on obtaining your Masters degree with excellent grades, and good luck in Eindhoven!
Poster prize Pia & Muhabbat
Not only one but two poster prizes were awarded to members of our group last Dutch Polymer Days conference, congratulations Pia and Muhabbat!
The 15th edition of the ESCDD in Egmond aan Zee was again a great success!
Together with SpectriS, we were granted measuring time by the Enabling Technologies Hotel program of ZonMW. We are looking forward to performing exciting hyperpolarization experiments on the 11.7T Biospec MRI at the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, in collaboration with Dr. Tom Scheenen and Prof. Arend Heerschap.
We enjoyed an excellent trip to the MEET Institute for battery research at the University of Münster, and were welcomed at the Department of Organic Chemistry by Prof. Bart-Jan Ravoo, many thanks! We of course also enjoyed our time together at the Münster Christmas market.
Well done Elisa Mendoza on obtaining your Master's degree!
Our Nanopheles project, aimed at delivery of anti-malarial agents, received funding from EuroNanoMed. The Nanopheles project entails an innovative approach towards fighting malaria. Instead of treating patients, rather the cause of malaria will be treated, i.e. infected Anopheles malaria mosquitoes. Nanocarriers for the delivery of anti-malarial agents will be developed and evaluated in vitro as well as in vivo in Anopheles malaria mosquitoes. This project will be carried out within a strong international consortium, led by Dr. Xavi Fernandez-Busquets (IBEC - Spain) and further including Prof. Christian Grandfils (University of Liege - Belgium), Dr. Krijn Paaijmans (IS Global - Spain), Dr. Inga Siden-Kiamos (FORTH - Greece), Fatima Nogueira (Universidade Nova de Lisboa - Portugal). We are very much looking forward to a fruitful collaboration.
SpectriS successfully acquired an investment from EIT RawMaterials.
