    The combination of different fields makes it interesting

    'When you think of Philips you think of devices, but innovation has a much broader focus nowadays. Chemistry also plays a very important role. We are currently researching ways to improve scanners in hospitals by using molecular imaging.

    We make use of modified biomolecules to improve the visibility of abnormalities in the human body, such as cancer cells, which will light up during a scan. This way we hope to find cancer or heart diseases at a much earlier phase. This kind of research hands us starting points for new therapies. The combination of chemical research and medical application makes my work incredibly fascinating. It is a field of work which never bores and includes a lot of challenges, and where I can apply all of the courses which I had during my studies. I also like the fact that my work includes cooperation with people from a lot of different fields.

    Challenging, but interesting!

    'I'm loving it here. The pace of study took some time to get used to, because each tutorial discusses a whole chapter of our study book. But you'll be fine as long as you attend all the lectures, which deal with all the material for the exam.

    I especially enjoyed Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Molecules, which are all about reactions and how they work. I find subjects like Physical Chemistry and Spectroscopy challenging, but very interesting. Alongside my studies I am a member of the rowing club Aegir, where I also stop in occasionally for drinks. I’m sharing a flat with two friends from secondary school, which is fantastic! We often eat together or go out to play sports.’
