Five recent MSc publications

2019-06-23

It is not common that MSc theses result in scientific publications. Five of our recent MSc students have been successful to publish their work with support from their BIOMAC supervisors in an international, peer-reviewed scientific journal. These students are: Tristan Bakx, Julia Heinen, Chris Lucas, Gabriel Muñoz, and Jasper Steenvoorden. Congratulations! This has resulted in the following papers:
