Regular preventive deworming of populations living with soil-transmitted intestinal worms can lead to drug resistance within ten years, according to an extensive simulation model created by scientists from Erasmus MC and published in Nature Communications.
Pediatrician Daniëlle Veenma and neuroscientist Geeske van Woerden are collaborating on a treatment for the rare CAMK2 syndrome. Currently, a cure is not possible. With funding from the Dutch Hersenstichting, they are mapping out the potential of a form of gene therapy. ‘We have good hope that we will succeed.’
Scientists from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and Erasmus MC have succeeded in visualizing the blood flow in mouse brains in three dimensions using a relatively simple and inexpensive ultrasound device they developed themselves. The team presents their findings in Science Advances.
Erasmus MC engineer Dr. Ing. Martijn Starmans is starting a new research line to bring the traditionally separate worlds of radiology and pathology together, in the form of combined AI algorithms. For the project, Starmans received an AiNed Fellowship Grant of 2 million euros from The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
Advanced microscope finds cancer cells that matter
Scientist Miao-Ping Chien and her team have designed and built a completely new type of microscope. In doing so, Chien hopes to boost research into rare cancer cells. ‘We can image tens of thousands of individual cells at once.’
