Updates and Events
The lab is a busy, fast-paced environment!
Advanced Functional Materials: This paper took over 5 years to publish! We’re very excited about this work, and happy to have been able to work with so many great collaborators.
ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces
New ERC PoC grant! 2nd PoC towards Cenya Imaging B.V.
We received a Marie Curie ITN consortium grant, NOVA-MRI to further our work on imaging and build a great network!
Advanced Functional Materials: This work was a collaboration between several groups within Radboud, physicists in Twente, chemists in Italy, and the neutron-scattering facilities in France and the UK. It took a lot of hard work, but it’s finally published!
We received a Radboud Oncology Fund award! So, now we need to carry out fundraising. We received our first donation already!
Kom in de Kas Noordoostpolder overhandigt cheque voor kankeronderzoek!
Thank you to the generous donors!
Edyta received the RIMLS Travel Grant 2018!
Edyta, Olga and Koen have a paper accepted in RSC Advances!
NWO Take-off grant received!
ERA-CVD project SCAN beginning soon!

Molecular imaging of atherosclerosis can become a key tool to understand progression of atherosclerosis to clinical disease; identify persons that need preventive therapy; test the causal role of risk factors; and guide the development of new drugs.
Partners in the present project have recently found that smooth muscle cells contribute a larger proportion of cells in atherosclerosis than previously thought, and have developed two nanoparticle technologies that allow imaging across a range of modalities. In SCAN this knowledge and technology is brought together to develop multimodal imaging of atherosclerosis with nanoparticles targeted to smooth muscle cells.
Red hot MRI symposium
We are organising the 2nd symposium on 19F MRI. This will be in Berlin on 16/10. More information here.
Places are limited!
Endorsed by the ESMRMB and ESMI.
What are your thoughts on cell therapy?
For example, on issues involving safety or tools needed.
