Three Medical Delta professors in micro electronics department

On November 2, nine professors were simultaneously inaugurated as 'Medical Delta professor' at Leiden University, LUMC, TU Delft, Erasmus University and/or Erasmus MC. Among which ME professor Wouter Serdijn and part time professors Natasja Groot and Andrew Webb. With an appointment at at least two of these five academic institutions, they combine technology and healthcare in their professorship.

The nine professors have each earned their spurs in research at the intersection of health and technology. Examples include the use of new techniques to determine the cause of cardiac arrhythmia, how cartilage can be repaired using technology, and how e-health can help with rehabilitation or prevention of illness. The official inauguration follows their earlier appointment as Medical Delta professors. During the inauguration, the professors presented their research and answered questions from young researchers.
