University of Twente scientist Vincent Groenhuis, from the department of Robotics and Mechatronics, designs robots to take more accurate biopsies from breast tissue. This contributes to a more reliable detection of breast tumors. The scientist finished his PhD cum laude last January and has several patents on his name.
After a careless childhood and strict education, the lab is where UT Professor of Multi-Modality Medical Imaging Srirang Manohar (49) found the right chemistry and fell in love with science. It sparked the choice for a Master-PhD degree in the hustle and bustle of the Indian megacity of Bangalore. Which brought him to the relative serenity of Twente, where he is now working on a ‘beyond state-of-the-art’ breast cancer diagnosis machine.
