Sarthak Misra receives Media Award from the University of Twente
The year 2015 starts with another award for JA@UT member Sarthak Misra. After being awarded a prestigious ERC Starting Grant at the end of 2014, he now received the Media Award from the University of Twente.
His research on MagnetoSperm, a tiny swimming robot inspired by human sperm, attracted a lot of (online) publicity. Popular Dutch newspapers and magazines, such as de Volkskrant, NRC, New Scientist and Kijk published articles about Sarthak’s research. The research on the MagnetoSperm even reached overseas, countries such as the United States and Canada, resulting in positive publicity for the University of Twente.
