Boudewijn Lelieveldt has been appointed professor

On 19 October, Boudewijn Lelieveldt (EEMCS) delivered his inaugural address as a professor of Biomedical Imaging at TU Delft and LUMC. In his address, Lelieveldt stated that medical science can often make excellent use of technologies from other fields. For example, knowledge from automatic facial recognition can also be used for medical analysis of images of organs. This is one reason why collaboration between technologists and doctors is essential. Lelieveldt actually puts his vision into practice, as he is occupying a chair shared by Leiden University and TU Delft.
