Last week at MalariaWorld: Science can change the world

June 26, 2015 - 08:00 -- Ingeborg van Schayk

This week DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, launched a campaign to pay tribute to 'caring' scientists with the film "Unsung heroes of science". Herewith DSM wants to pay a tribute to the world's scientists making a positive difference to our society. At the same time DSM would like to start a conversation about the importance of science with a societal purpose.

We are proud that DSM has chosen malaria as one of the topics and Bart Knols as one of the scientists. Watch this short film here and get inspired.
