Take a look inside the atomic structure of materials with the world’s most powerful microscope. And discover how a precious metal like gold could alter the future of medical science. This microscope at the University of Antwerp makes it possible to get a crystal clear look at the size and shape of gold nanoparticles. And that is important because these minute particles can only be used in the fight against cancer if they have the right size and shape. However this microscope has a lot more to offer. It is invaluable for a broad range of research fields.
The University of Antwerp and the National Geographic Channel will take you behind the scenes of groundbreaking research. Literally. Take a look with us at a Van Gogh painting and discover: a second Van Gogh. Descend into the sewers of Antwerp, Amsterdam and Brussels and see how inhabitants’ drug abuse is exposed. Discover the potential role of gold and the world’s most powerful microscope in the fight against cancer. Explore new routes that the transport sector can travel down and find out if woodchips can save the world.
The University of Antwerp wants to pass on knowledge to all its students. This is its job, which it does with passion. A second passion, that is at least every bit as great as the first is to produce knowledge.
This is why the University of Antwerp takes part in groundbreaking research. Research that saves lives and perhaps even the world as well. Would you like to be part of this passionate university? Then sign up for one of our courses and before long you will be producing knowledge with the University of Antwerp.
