The Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) and the company Matrix Innovation Center signed a rental contract for a large part of the new Matrix-VII building that will be constructed soon at Amsterdam Science Park. ARCNL will be the first tenant in this new building that offers enough space to also house other organizations and companies. Matrix-VII will be located right next to the AMOLF building and ARCNL will move in as soon as the building is ready, which is expected to happen in 2018.
Beads, disks, bowls and rods: scientists from FOM and the Radboud University have demonstrated the first methodological approach to control the shapes of nanovesicles. This opens doors for the use of nanovesicles in biomedical applications, such as drug delivery in the body. Nature Communications will publish these results on 25 August.
Researchers from FOM Institute AMOLF have developed a microscopy technique for the live tracking of development in the individual cells of a growing, eating and moving organism, the worm Caenorhabditis elegans
. The next step is to find out how environmental factors affect development. The researchers published their findings in Nature Communications on 25 August 2016.
