    3D measurements to improve the fit of cycling helmets
    A cycling helmet that doesn't fit your head properly or an item of clothing marked 'one size fits all' that doesn't actually fit: we've all been there. Modern 3D measuring techniques can make a big difference here.

    Astronaut's brain is altered after a stay in outer space
    Antwerp scientists were the first to prove that when astronauts spend a long time in space, their brain is altered. This discovery may also be good news for people who are bedridden for a long period of time.

    We're one step closer to unravelling the hearing mechanism
    Hearing is a very complex sense: thousands of cells have to work together so that we can hear. The organ of Corti plays a vital role in this. Investigating its structure, Joris Soons (University of Antwerp) has succeeded in producing a detailed map of this receptor organ.

    Aligned molecules promise faster telecommunications
    Antwerp researchers have succeeded in aligning asymmetric molecules inside nanotubes for the first time. While this scoop is obviously of great fundamental scientific value, in the future it may also lead to applications in optical telecommunications. The publication of the results in Nature Nanotechnology has already proven the importance of the finding.
