A great example of a strong collaboration within the consortium between Dr. Miguel Dias Castilho (UMCU) and Dr. Nicholas Kurniawan (TU/e) which resulted in a HiTMAT grant. In their project Advaessel: Advanced materials processing and design for regenerating blood vessels, they aim to use 3D printing technologies to develop a new generation of functional, fully […]
Dr. Jasper Foolen (TU/e) receives €5,9 million within the new TRIANKLE research consortium. This consortium composed of 12 partners including TU/e. In his project, Dr. Jasper Foolen will develop personalized bio-implants for injured tendons. His project also was noticed by the Eindhovens Dagblad, see the article here (in Dutch). Congratulations Jasper! Read all about […]
“During the corona crisis everyone became an ethicist.” These are the words of Professor of Ethics of Biomedical Innovation and Member of the Senate Annelien Bredenoord. In this video Prof. Annelien Bredenoord explains her work as an ethicist and what her role is during the corona-crisis. Which ethic dilemma’s arise? And how does ethics influence […]
You can register now for the MDR annual meeting 2020 via this weblink.
Tina Vermonden, one of our faculty MDR researchers, is appointed as Professor of Biomaterials for Drug Delivery and Regenerative Medicine. The main focus will be on the development of polymeric materials that are suitable as either protein or drug delivery matrices or as scaffolds for regenerative medicine. Read all about it here. Congratulations Professor […]
Who are you, what is your background and how did you get involved in MDR? I finished my PhD at EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany, where I dissected molecular mechanisms controlling cell shape transitions and changes in tissue mechanics during Drosophila embryogenesis. I have established novel optogenetic methods that in combination with multi-photon microscopy allowed me […]
Dr. Riccardo Levato, UMC Utrecht, receives the ERC Starting Grant for the project: Volumetric light-driven bioprinting capturing complex physiological shape, size and function in artificial tissues and organoids RMU researcher Riccardo Levato received an ERC starting grant to work on a 3D-bioprinter. With a classic 3D printer it can take hours before the object is […]
Who are you, what is your background and how did you get involved in MDR? My name is Milica Nikolic. I am from Serbia. There I finished elementary school, gymnasium and faculty (Mechanical faculty Kragujevac, University of Kragujevac). I finished my PhD studies at Faculty of Engineering, University of Kragujevac, obtaining the title Doctor of […]
Starting from September onwards, every month MDR will organize a colloquium. In this meeting one junior and one senior MDR researcher will share their newest findings and results in a 20 minutes presentation, followed by a 10 minutes discussion. The meetings will be posted in the Events section of the website, and all MDR researchers […]
