‘Organise the Olympic Games in a region’

23 April 2014

Good spatial planning for the Olympic Games is not a simple task. For example, many Olympic accommodations can no longer be used after the event, falling into decay afterwards. Architecture students Julius Kirchert and Jos Reinders are looking at the spatial planning mistakes of the last six Summer Olympics. They used these to formulate a set of lessons/rules for how this could be done better,...Continue

TU Delft research brings significant improvement in genetic analysis of tumours

16 April 2014

Every tumour is unique and requires specific treatment. A thorough and complete analysis of the genetic activity in the tumour cells is necessary to determine the appropriate treatment. Researchers at TU Delft, in collaboration with researchers from Columbia University and the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital have achieved significant improvements in this type of analysis. The results were...Continue

F Muijres/U of Washington

When startled by predators, tiny fruit flies respond like fighter jets – employing screaming-fast banked turns to evade attacks. This was one of the results of a study undertaken at the University of Washington, as published in Science on 11 April. Among the American scientists, the list of authors also includes the name of Johan Melis, a student from Delft. This research was his final project...Continue

DiTTLab will be a ‘playground’ for traffic research at TU Delft

10 April 2014

‘How cool would it be to be able to reconstruct an existing strip of infrastructure into something completely new with a few clicks of your mouse and then start experimenting with linked driving simulators? And then to mix this virtual world with the real world?’ TU Delft is setting up a ‘playground’ to turn imaginary scenarios like this into reality. It will be called the DiTTLab, which stands...Continue


Delft training system for keyhole surgery provides greater insight into forces

31 March 2014

Keyhole surgery is particularly difficult, so good training for surgeons is essential. Tim Horeman has improved several aspects of this training. He has demonstrated that force and motion measurements give an objective assessment of a surgeon’s skills, and that direct feedback on the force applied enhances the learning effect. On Tuesday 1 April, Horeman has been awarded his PhD at TU Delft for...Continue
