The researchers at CardioTech are working to reduce the consequences of cardiovascular disease through Smart Technology. The focus is on the entire life course, from prevention, to diagnosis and treatment. Data is the connecting element in the approach of the CadioTech researchers. For example, by following someone throughout their life and collecting data about that life, a 'digital twin' can be created. This data can be used in the treatment and, for example, in the coaching of a healthy lifestyle. Another theme within CardioTech is to move research in the hospital as much as possible to monitoring at home. Together with Leiden University Medical Center, for example, efforts are being made to improve home monitoring, to see whether patients can be safely rehabilitated at home as much as possible after an operation.

TU Delft joins EBRAINS: advancing brain research and innovationToday marks a significant milestone as TU Delft officially joins EBRAINS, a state-of-the-art digital research infrastructure developed by the EU-funded Human Brain Project, which serves as a comprehensive hub for brain-related data and tools.
DNA Origami nanoturbine sets new horizon for nanomotorsA collaborative team of researchers led by prof. Cees Dekker at TU Delft, in partnership with international colleagues, introduces a pioneering breakthrough in the world of nanomotors – the DNA origami nanoturbine. This nanoscale device could represent a paradigm shift, harnessing power from ion gradients or electrical potential across a solid-state nanopore to drive the turbine into mechanical rotations. The core of this pioneering discovery is the design, construction, and driven motion of a ’DNA origami’ turbine, which features three chiral blades, all within a minuscule 25-nanometer frame, operating in a solid-state nanopore. By ingeniously designing two chiral turbines, researchers now have the capability to dictate the direction of rotation, clockwise or anticlockwise. Their research findings have been published in Nature Nanotechnology on October 26.
