Fellow Simone Mastrogiacomo explains his project to public at Open Days "Europe around the corner", Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) 

May 2016

On 13 May, Novio Tech Campus (NTC) in Nijmegen was one of the locations that could be visited during the Open days "Europe around the corner". During these open days, the public could visit projects “around the corner” that are (partly) funded with European grants. As the department of Biomaterials of RadboudUMC is currently located at the NTC, iTERM fellow Simone Mastrogiacomo participated in the Open Days event. He developed educative activities for children aimed to explain the anatomical structure of human teeth, the main cells that are present in the teeth and in the bone and their main function. In this context, he was able to describe the overall goals of his work in the iTERM project, i.e. enhance visualization of these structures in relation to future diagnostic and therapeutic treatments in dental and orthopedic medicine.
