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.

When frustration leads to inspiration for Open Science
According to Adarsh Kalikadien, PhD candidate at the Faculty of Applied Sciences, open access publishing is not enough if you really want to perform open science, especially when you work with large data sets or self-designed software. "Freely accessible or not, a PDF full of messy data is useless to me as a fellow researcher. Publishing data and code openly is only of value if someone else can work with it."

Medical experts and engineers speak each other’s language in Delft
An outpatients’ centre for cancer patients is certainly not the first thing you would expect to encounter on TU Delft campus. ‘But the decision to choose Delft as the location for the Holland Proton Therapy Centre has actually proved to be a very smart move’, says Medical Director Prof. Marco van Vulpen. The location alongside the TU Delft Reactor Institute offers an excellent opportunity for clinicians and engineers to collaborate closely.

3-in-1 microscope shows researchers the way to proteins
Physicists from TU Delft have developed a 3-in-1 microscope where a light beam, electron beam and ion beam work together to precisely cut out specific slices from biological samples. These slices are indispensable for biomolecular research into new generations of medicines. The invention was published in the journal eLife on 1 December.
