Ana Ortiz Perez is the winner of this year’s Twente Graduate School (TGS) Award. The recipient of the prize and 2.500 euros was announced today during the digital Opening of the Academic Year ceremony. The UT researcher was selected for her project which aims to develop a tumor-on-a-chip platform that mimics liver cancer.
March was dubbed the ‘alcohol-free month’, encouraging people to stay away from booze for thirty days. ‘It’s a great idea to give your liver a break,’ says UT researcher Ruchi Bansal, who herself is on a mission to raise awareness about liver disease. Although the ‘no drinking’ month is over, Bansal still has a few handy tips on how to keep yourself healthy and she tells everyone: ‘Love your liver!’
