TU Delft scientists reveal molecular structure of bacterial gas vesicles
Similar in function to ballast tanks in submarines or fish bladders, many water-based bacteria use gas vesicles to regulate their floatability. In a publication in Cell, scientists from TU Delft now describe the molecular structure of these vesicles for the first time. These gas vesicles were also recently repurposed as contrast agents for ultrasound imaging.

Freek Pols published a frontline article: Collaborative data collection: shifting focus on meaning making during practical work
Freek Pols published a frontline article: Collaborative data collection: shifting focus on meaning making during practical work. In this paper he presents, together with a high school teacher, an approach to practical work in which data collection is minimized freeing time for the more cognitive demanding tasks such as data-analysis and drawing conclusions.

Pushing the boundaries of ultrasound
Physicist David Maresca has received a Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Dynamic Imaging grant to develop a next-generation medical ultrasound tool. While state-of-the-art ultrasound imaging, known to most as a baby’s first picture, can show our anatomy and organs, the new tool will be able to zoom in much further, all the way down to the level of the cells in our body.
