After a warm welcome by RIMLS scientific director René Bindels, where he mentioned the highlights of 2019, several RIMLS researchers received an award including bonus during the New Year's drinks. Next to the award ceremony, there were short pitches from some of our succesfull researchers. Ellen van den Bogaard was invited to disclose the secrets which have led to her success. Niels van Royen told us more about his research and success story to achieve his publications in impressive journals. And finally, Nico Sommerdijk enthusiastically talked about his newly designed lab, dedicated to the biochemistry of mineralized tissues (opening soon!).
And then there was the premiere of the aftermovie of the ENABLE/New Frontiers symposium held in Nijmegen. If you missed this premiere or if you want to watch this video again, click here.
