175th Dies Natalis, 13 January 2017



Contagium vivum fluid – is how Martinus Beijerinck described what he saw when he put some diseased tobacco leaves under his microscope in 1898. The Delft microbiologist became world famous with this discovery which we all know by its abbreviation: virus.

Biologists may not be the first ones you expect to encounter in Delft, but it is in fact hard to imagine the university without them. Everywhere on campus you will find technical scientists who are inspired by biology: from bio-inspired design to biotechnology and from nano-biology to bioinformatics.

In teams, we look for smart solutions for people and the environment, inspired by what nature does. We are working for example on biofuel made from yeast cells, we use microorganisms to purify water, and bacteria so concrete can repair itself.

During the anniversary celebrations we show you what we have to offer in this field: for 175 days ‘Technology for Life’ will be at the heart of Delft. We kick off the celebrations with the Dies Natalis ceremony on Friday 13 January.
