Alumni meeting at UHOH in Stuttgart
Back to Stuttgart? In July, the 50 years celebration of the Institute of Food Chemistry at the University of Hohenheim (UHOH) was gathering together most alumnis. For 8 years, I taught in the Food Chemistry courses at UHOH (2003-2011). It was a pleasure to meet again.
Now two alumnis in the image are full professors at JLU Giessen (Chair of Food Chemistry and Chair of Food Science)! And Professor emeritus Dr. Wolfgang Schwack, Head and Director of the Food Chemistry Institute at UHOH for 22 years, also has joined the group of Food Science at JLU Gießen since October 2017. WELCOME!
Poster presentation of the vanilla team: Erasmus students Sandrine Tomeba, Alice Sighicelli and Martina Busso from Italy! They made it perfectly!
Congratulations to the speakers of our group - they did it excellent! It was great to see these outstanding young researchers. Among them, Dimitri Fichou (middle) was honored by the Young Researcher Award on his presentation on Office Chromatography!
First Poster Prize
At the jubilee XXXXth Symposium for ‘Chromatographic methods of investigating the organic compounds’ in Szczyrk in Poland from 23. to 26. May 2017 our poster "Office Chromatography - do it yourself!" was awarded with the First Poster Prize! We are grateful for this early recognition given for this instrumental open-source project termed Office Chromatography.

At the 72. Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Lebensmittel-, Veterinär- und Agrarwesen (ALVA) Meeting in Waldkirchen in Austria on the 22. May 2017 Dr. Ines Klingelhöfer got the ALVA-Forschungspreis 2017 awarded for her dissertation. We thank the Award Selection Committee for this honor!
Eager to learn more about HPTLC...
Working in a group with mostly 5-7 nationalities of highly motivated researcher is exciting, as your perspective is expanded. Currently, Italy dominates the group besides Iran, Hungary, Belgium, Egypt, France....
A great pleasure to host Dr. Ágnes Móricz from the Plant Protection Institute, Centre for Agricultural Research, Hungarian Academy of Sciences!
IFZ Bild des Monats
For the second time, a delegation of the Academy of Sciences and of the Academy of Testing and Analysis of Guizhou visited our lab to get insight into bioprofiling and food analysis. They also got information on the German and European food safety system.
Open-source-based 3D printing of thin silica gel layers
. The proof-of-principle was successfully demonstrated for 3D printing of thin silica gel layers. All modifications of the device and software were released open-source to encourage re-use and improvements and to stimulate the users to contribute to this technology. Interested?
