A new look for the Reactor Institute Delft
TU Delft's Reactor Institute Delft (RID) will get a new look in the form of new dome plating. As of 4 November, a scaffolding is being built around the dome for this purpose. Because of the shape of the dome, building the scaffolding is a specialist job. This will take a few weeks. It is expected that all 1,200 plates will be replaced in the second quarter of 2020.

30 November 2018
On Friday 30 November, the festive opening celebration of HollandPTC will take place in the Prinsenhof museum in Delft. Recently patients are being treated with proton therapy, a new form of radiotherapy against cancer for the Netherlands, in the outpatient centre HollandPTC located on the campus of the TU Delft. Parallel to these treatments, TU Delft is working together in HollandPTC with the LUMC and Erasmus MC medical centres on innovations in the care of cancer patients. Treatment, education and research go hand in hand to achieve better and responsible care.

Interdisciplinary MSc projects for RST on health and waste water
Delft Bioengineering Institute has awarded Zoltán Perkό and Albert van de Wiel with a total of €7500 for the execution of three interdisciplinary MSc projects. Together with Elizabeth Carroll (ImPhys), Zoltan has designed a project that looks into ultrahigh dose-rate FLASH irradiation in zebrafish. With 3mE’s Giulia Giordano, Zoltan will look into using mathematical methods to optimize control of combined chemo-radiation therapy. Albert teams up with CEG’s Doris van Halem to measure arsenic content of rice products and waste water. In total, Bioengineering has granted 15 MSc projects that resulted from the networking event BioDate 2018. Below you read more about this three interesting projects.

Permit application and Environmental Impact Assessment available for consultation
The permit application and the Environmental Impact Assessment for the cold source of the OYSTER-programme are available for consultation from 23 August to 3 October 2018. The application concerns the installation of a cold neutron source next to the reactor core. This cold source, which is in itself not a radioactive application, makes it possible to slow down the neutrons of the research reactor, thus allowing better research results to be obtained.
