NWO Physics Valorisation Prize goes to Ron Heeren from Maastricht University

This year, the prize for the best knowledge utilisation in physics goes to Prof. Ron Heeren (M4I). He works on improving clinical diagnostics by means of mass spectrometry imaging. He implemented a method at Maastricht UMC+ that allows the surgeon to see, during the operation, whether the edge of the tissue excised is also free of tumour cells. The NWO Physics Valorisation Prize is worth 250,000 euros and is intended to encourage knowledge utilisation in physics. Ron Heeren receives the prize for his successful translation of physics research to the market and for his contribution to patient diagnostics.
