BiS and the Platform for Therapeutic Biomaterials Discovery are hosting Prof. dr. Henny Beckers to give a seminar about 'Modernizing glucoma Surgery: The SEAMS and ISEA projects' on Thursday, 30th, January at Ceres 1.26. Henny is an eye surgeon at Maastricht UMC specialized in glaucoma surgery. She can talk contagiously enthusiastic about surgical challenges related to glaucoma shunt devices and bridges the gap between clinical problems to engineering solutions.
BiS is hosting Prof. Kevin Williams’ lecture entitled “Photonic integration in sensing and metrology” on Monday 13 January 2020 at 13.00h, venue t.b.a., to learn more about possibilities to miniaturise and automate biomaterial discovery. Kevin Williams is a Full Professor and Chair of the Photonic Integration research group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His key fields of expertise include photonic integrated circuits, semiconductor lasers and their application in communications and sensing. https://www.tue.nl/en/research/researchers/kevin-williams/
BiS will co-organize and host the workshop “Finding the blind spot in medical implant safety” in the first half of 2020.
An invited team of experts in material science, the clinic and policy will discuss visions on implant safety and
The event will take place in at the TU/e campus and based on it a white paper will be written to build a national initiative on implant safety.
The exact dates will be announced soon.
Aysegul won the best chair award at the annual meeting of the Netherlands society for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (NBTE) 2019.
She was awarded for stimulating questions to the presenter, communication with the audience and keeping the discussion alive.
Congrats Aysegul, very well deserved.
