TU Delft Health Initiative Pilot Award

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


Angelo Accardo, expert in the area of Soft Micro- and Nano-system Technology for Life Sciences and Biology, received the TU Delft Health Initiative Pilot award. The pilot project will be about his research on the creation of standardized, reproducible and physiologically relevant 3D engineered cell microenvironments (3D Onco-Scaffolds) to be used as a benchmark tool for proton Radiobiology. The obtained results of this project will pave the way for pre-treatment characterization and response assessment of cancerous and healthy tissues. The pilot study will be done in close collaboration with the Holland Proton Therapy Center (HPTC), the cell lab facilities of HPTC partner institutes and the Erasmus MC Optical Imaging Centre.
