Young Speaker Award at SIMS-21 in Krakow for MSc Kaija Schäpe
MSc Kaija Schäpe was awarded with the Biointerphase Award for her oral presentation “Detection of lipids in native human bone sections by ToF-SIMS and AP-SMALDI Orbitrap MSI” (Authors: Kaija Schaepe, Janina Werner, Dhaka Bhandari, Marcus Rohnke, Sabine Wenisch, Bernhard Spengler, Jürgen Janek) at the 21st International SIMS Conference in Krakow, Poland. Kaija competed with other young scientists in the field biological and biomaterial SIMS research. Kaija Schäpe's PhD project focuses on the MS analysis of lipids in osteoporotic bone, comparing the information from both ToF-SIMS and MALDI-TOF-MS. Her PhD project is part of the SFB/TRR 79 “Repair Concepts for Bone with Systemic Disease” and a collaboration with the Spengler group.
