Contribution to research instead of business gift

Subject: Contribution to research instead of business gift

Dear

We would like to thank you for a pleasant cooperation in 2017.

Perhaps it is a company custom to send gifts to your associates towards the holidays. On behalf of the University of Twente we would like to point out that our preference goes towards donations for a charity selected by us. This year we have chosen for the research of “de Twentse (bio) kunstnier” (the Twentse (bio) artificial kidney) by Prof. dr. Dimitrios Stamatialis.

“Together with my research group I work on a compact dialysis device, with which kidney patients themselves can do their dialysis at place and time of their choosing. The quality of life for this group of patients will drastically improve because of this. The membranes developed in Twente for the use of purification of the blood are an essential part of this dialysis device. We hope that the knowledge gained now can be used in future development of a full functioning (bio) artificial kidney from bio materials and cells. A contribution to our research helps accelerate the clinical test phase to properly test the membranes and the device. Donate to this special research from Twente with which you can give kidney patients their life back!”

You can transfer your donation to IBAN: NL09 ABNA 0592 7191 89 in the name of Stichting Universiteitsfonds Twente, under reference ‘Christmas gift 2017’. Your donation will be published on the Facility Services website. In anticipation of your donation we like to thank you and we look forward to a pleasant cooperation in the future.

Kind regards,

P. Fij
Director Facility Services
