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.

Marnix Wagemaker receives Vici for battery research
Dr. ir. Marnix Wagemaker will receive a Vici grant from NWO. Wagemaker is getting this grant, which amounts to 1.5 million euros, to investigate the inner workings of batteries. Among other things, the researcher aims to find out why the storage capacity achieved by the current generation of batteries is lagging behind that which should theoretically be feasible. An additional 250.000 euros of in-kind contributions will be provided by companies that are involved in the research.
