NWO ECHO grant for dr. Ilja Voets
Dr. Ilja Voets (TU/e) has recently received an NWO ECHO Grant (of 260,000 Euros) by The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO).
This is for her planned research on Ice-binding protein-polymers for control over ice growth in soft materials (POLICE)
Freezing damages soft materials in an irreparable manner. Inspired by antifreeze proteins from polar fish and bacteria, Ilja Voets and colleagues will develop ice-binding protein-polymers to protect soft materials in a sustainable manner against freeze damage.
