Really cheap 3D echo imaging
A plastic cap with a pattern of pinpricks. This seemingly simple adjustment means that high-quality 3D echoes can be produced much cheaper. Researchers from Erasmus MC and TU Delft published their findings in the journal Science Advances on Friday 8 December.
Delft University of Technology and Royal HaskoningDHV sign agreement for biopolymer recovery from wastewater
Delft, 8 December 2017 – Royal HaskoningDHV and Delft University of Technology have signed an agreement stating that patented techniques used to extract valuable Biopolymers from Nereda® wastewater treatment sludge are transferred to Royal HaskoningDHV. This gives the company the worldwide rights to apply these technologies to wastewater treatment installations using Royal HaskoningDHV’s Nereda® technology. This technology originated from research at the Delft University of Technology.
Three postdocs for Applied Sciences in ‘LEaDing Fellows’ programme
Thanks to the European Unions ‘LEaDing Fellows Postdocs Programme’, the Faculty of Applied Sciences has the honour to welcome three new postdocs: Aurora Dols Perez from Spain, Dowon Bae from South Korea and Andrea Gutierrez from Colombia.
Life from the lab
Scientists at TU Delft want to make a synthetic cell from separate biological building blocks.
Crafting matter atom by atom
Over the past twenty years, the scale of data storage decreased at an astonishing rate. With society currently creating more than a billion gigabytes of data every day, further decrease of data storage area is becoming increasingly relevant. Together with his team, however, Prof. Sander Otte from Delft University of Technology found the ultimate solution.
Tinkering under the bonnet of life
CRISPR-Cas9, the technique scientists use to very precisely edit DNA, is receiving global attention. And rightly so, because this technology has far-reaching consequences. A longer life in good health? The end of genetic disorders? Crops that are able to survive in the harshest conditions? CRISPR-Cas9 brings all of this and more within our grasp. The research group of Dr Stan Brouns at the department of Bionanoscience is conducting fundamental research into how CRISPR systems function. What is his take on the forthcoming revolution?
