Dag van Biofysica & Biomedische Technologie 2013


An audience of about 100 biophysists had a very stimulating day during the “Dag van Biofysica & Biomedische Technologie” held at the VU on Friday, November 22nd.

Unique to this event, the award of the Biophysics & BMT Thesis Price was decided for the first time on the day itself. Three nominees – selected by a jury on the basis of the very high scientific quality of their thesis - each gave an excellent and very interesting talk. Following a public vote, it was decided that Nienke Bosschaardt of the Academic Medical Center of the UvA gave the best presentation and she was therefore awarded the Thesis Price 2013. Petra van Houdt of the VU University Medical Center received the second, and Koen Haak of the University Medical Center Groningen received the third price. The price for best poster of the day went to Boy Braaf from the VU.
