Martina Grab completed her Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH). In 2013 she started her Masters degree with focus on Medical Engineering. Within this study she joined The Interface Group to complete a Semester Thesis in building a Dynamic Bioreactor for Cancer Metastasis Research. She continued her work at the group by expanding that project further during her
master thesis. After the conclusion of her master thesis, Martina moved on towards the industry.

David Granjon wins poster award
David Granjon, post-doc at the Inteface Group, won the Best Poster Award at the 2018 annual NCCR Kidney.CH retreat for his contribution titled “A web-based application of calcium and phosphate homeostasis”. He therein described his work on the development of web-based physiological models as teaching tools, focusing on calcium-phosphate homeostasis as an example of a highly regulated physiological system that is challenging to teach.
