We are delighted to announce that Prof. Dr. Lutgarde Buydens, dean of the faculty of Science of Radboud University, COAST participant and board member, has been awarded the CAC2018 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Lutgarde received the award at the Chemometrics in Analytical Chemistry Conference 2018 in Halifax, Canada for her exceptional work and important accomplishments in the field of chemometrics.
COAST congratulates five participants on their success in the NWO call Roadmap for Large Infrastructure
Recently NWO announced the results of the call “Nationale Roadmap voor Grootschalige Wetenschappelijke Infrastructuur 2017/8”. Five COAST participants were among the awardees.
- Prof Thomas Hankemeier, Leiden University, is partner in the Netherlands X-omics Initiative. This initiative links genomics to proteomics and metabolomics.
- Prof Ron Heeren, Maastricht University, is partner in the Netherlands Electron Microscopy Infrastructure. The initiative sets out to make EM technology accessible to a wide range of scientists in various areas and to further innovate the technique, e.g through combination with mass spectroscopic ion microscopy.
- Prof Jos Oomens, Radboud University is partner in HFML-FELIX. This facility combines the free-electron laser producing intense infrared and THz radiation with the highest possible magnetic fields and thus allows investigation of matter under extreme conditions.
- Cosine en Micronit are partner in ATHENA. In the part of this program that is funded by NWO an X-ray camera and spectrograph are developed for the new European space telescope Athena. Cosine and Micronit will develop the extremely sharp X-ray mirror.
COAST provides three student conference grants for the OurCon V mass spectrometry imaging conference 2017
25-28 September 2017, Doorn, The Netherlands
We congratulate Robert Voeten with his second place in the competition for the best HLO chemistry thesis of 2015.
