BIOPM sponsored two key prizes: the poster prize and the annual thesis prize.

The Thesis Prize for the best PhD thesis in Biophysics or Biomedical Engineering 2019 was awarded to Tom Kamperman for his thesis “Microgel Technology to Advance Modular Tissue Engineering”. He defended his thesis successfully at the University of Twente on 26 January 2018.
