On the October 1st, Eline van Haaften successfully defended her PhD thesis which was focussed on Materials-Driven Regeneration reseach and was supervised by Carlijn Bouten and Nicholas Kurniawan. The title of her project was: ‘On the impact of the mechanical environment in vascular tissue engineering: an in vitro study.’ She received her PhD degree cum […]
Nicholas Kurniawan (TU/e) was awarded with an ERC Starting Grant of up to 1.5 M Euro. Nicholas and his team will work on dissecting the dynamics of the physical interactions between cells and the extracellular matrix. They will develop ways to mechanically manipulate cell behavior using dynamic substrates and materials. The outlook is to temporally control cell response […]
Prof. Jos Malda and coworkers publish on a new way of thinking about the regeneration of articular cartilage. Cartilage has a limited healing capacity; however, studies into the basic biological characteristics, formation and structural maintenance of the cartilage collagen network are providing explanations for the failure of current therapeutic approaches, urging us to rethink our […]
Prof. Patricia Dankers was awarded the Innovation award of the Journal of Polymer Science The Journal of Polymer Science Innovation Award has been granted to researchers working in areas […]
On December 5th, 2019 the Annual Meeting of MDR will take place in Den Bosch, The Netherlands. The location will be the Theater aan de Parade like last year. A detailed program will be published soon.
We are happy to announce the projects selected for funding under the Young Talent programme of MDR in 2019. In the call for PhD candidates and postdocs: “Shrinkable 3D printed hydrogel constructs to replicate vascularized proximal kidney tubules” by Anne Metje van Genderen and Carl Schuurmans, University of Utrecht “Artificial tissues from 3D-printed coacervate protocells” […]
There is an opening for a Postdoctoral researcher computational modeling for regenerative engineering; please see the details here.
The program for the Maastricht leg of the MDR Graduate Course (23-24 May 2019) is available here.
The program for the Utrecht leg of the MDR Graduate Course 2019 is available here.
NPO 1 (the radio news channel of the Dutch national broadcast organisation) has an interview with prof. Marianne Verhaar and Fjodor Yousef Yengej on the succesful growth of kidney organoids from a patient’s own urine. It is available here (in Dutch).
