13 Dec 2016 - ERC Consolidator Grant for Jeroen Rouwkema University of Twente researcher Jeroen Rouwkema is awarded the prestigious Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council (ERC). Rouwkema will receive ERC funding (two million Euros) for his project ‘VascArbor’, the goal of which is to control the development and organization of blood vessels in cultured tissues. 30 Nov 2016 - Half a million euros for better Healthcare through new technology Pioneers in Health Care Innovation Vouchers 2016  30 Nov 2016 - At long last - stroke patients can be monitored at home, using a sensor suit From now on it will be possible to accurately monitor and analyse how stroke patients move during everyday life. This involves the use of a new suit fitted with 41 sensors, plus the infrastructure needed to transmit, store and process all of the data collected. This technology and information will make it possible to improve the rehabilitation process and cut healthcare costs. 25 Nov 2016 - Jeannette Hofmeijer receives Professor De Winter Award Today, during the celebrations to mark the anniversary of the University of Twente’s foundation day (known as Dies Natalis), the Professor De Winter Award was presented to Dr Jeannette Hofmeijer. 22 Nov 2016 - Six new Technical Medicine Fellowships UT steps into the breach with an incentive scheme, as the government fails to act 21 Nov 2016 - Scienstist get closer to developing bioartificial kidney The world is one important step closer to creating a functional bioartificial kidney. 17 Nov 2016 - Kidney patients will benefit from membrane developed at the University of Twente Researchers from the MIRA Institute at the University of Twente are working on a new generation of haemodialysis membranes. These mixed matrix membranes (MMM) are able to remove much more protein-bound toxins from human plasma than existing membranes. An article on this study was recently published in Nature Scientific Reports. 16 Nov 2016 - UT in five out of six 'Perspectief' projects Cartilage repair, energy efficient Internet of Things, new ways of controlling light, better flood protection and a brain prosthesis that can give sight to the blind.
