Sjoerd Postma studied Molecular Life Sciences at Radboud University Nijmegen. His research internships concerned click chemistry, enzyme-loaded nanoparticles, and the development of a fluorescent hydrogel to study reaction-diffusion of calcium ions. Sjoerd’s final internship was part of a program of the Radboud Honours Academy. This internship was carried out at the University of Cambridge and its main objective was to measure the conformational dynamics of diubiquitin chains with single-molecule fluorescence techniques.

The genetic scissors

Scientists use technologies that can manipulate the genetic information in cells to ascertain the function of these genes, among other things. That is time consuming, difficult and an often impossible job. Now, in 2020, it is possible to change the genome – the code of life – within a few weeks. This is possible using […]Continue reading

Fast-track Netherlands Patent Office (OCN) search procedure for corona control products

  The Netherlands Patent Office (OCN), that falls under the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, is offering an accelerated search procedure in digital patent databases for inventions that play a role in controlling the coronavirus. Usually this type of search takes about four weeks, but the OCN is now applying a considerably shorter procedure of only two […]Continue reading
