Skills
Apart from academic skills, our teaching also focuses on transferable skills. Both business and society demand critical thinking, the ability to solve problems and selfreflection; however, they also ask for creativity, the ability to collaborate, and communicative skills, such as presenting, persuading…

Mathematical modelling of adverse outcome pathways
In this project, we aim to develop mathematical models to mechanistically and quantitatively predict the dynamics of cellular stress pathway activation and its relation with toxic effects when cells are exposed to various toxicants.

Mathematicsbased strategies for repairing tumour blood vessels
How does the extracellular matrix coordinate endothelial cell behavior during angiogenesis, and how do metabolic wasteproducts and matrixdegrading enzymes produced by the tumour modify the extracellular matrix so as the change the cellular coordination?

Mathematical analysis of systems pharmacology models
Systems pharmacology aims to apply techniques from systems biology to pharmacological models.

This is how didactic Peter Kop encourages high school students to make friends with algebraic formulas
For many high school students, mathematical formulas are nothing more than abracadabra. Didactic and mathematics teacher Peter Kop wants to change this. For his PhD research, he devised a new series of lessons full of drawing assignments that learn students to assign more meaning to the formulas. Kop:…

Boethius and the Importance of Basic Logic and Mathematics for Philosophy
In this dissertation, Boethius’ mathematics and logic and their roles in philosophy are reassessed, and on the basis of these, the connections between mathematics and logic in Boethius and their applications to theological or philosophical topics are explored.

Record number of students in mathematics this year
The number of mathematics students in higher education is increasing spectacularly. This year, the influx of new students rises to more than 1000 on a national scale. This is a fivefold increase compared to the number of students that registered for an education in Mathematics in 2002.

Mathematical modeling of cellular stress pathways for mechanistic understanding of chemicalinduced liver injury
Cellular stress response pathways are activated upon exposure to chemicals and help organisms deal with various molecular dangers (e.g. oxidative stress). When these pathways become hyperactivated an adverse response takes place and cells die, which may lead to organismlevel toxicity such as druginduced…
