Shimadzu´s lab4you student program

In 2017 Shimadzu has launched the third round of the lab4you students program for all of you, who need free lab space for your research!

Again, we were looking to support young, enthusiastic scientists with an interesting topic of research, by offering instrument time on the entire range of our state-of-the-art analytical equipment and testing machines.

A lot of interesting applications were proposed, from all over Europe and decision making was once more very difficult.

That is why the selection committee is happy to announce, that not one, but two promising candidates will get the chance to advance their research by using the equipment in the Shimadzu Laboratory World.

Our successful candidates are:

  • Lars Appel

He is a research assistant at the Insitut für Textiltechnik (ITA) der RWTH Aachen University looking to analyse the fracture and fatigue behavior of out-of-autoclave thin-ply carbon fiber reinforced plastics, which are increasingly being used in many sectors of the economy such as the automotive industry, aerospace and sports equipment.

  • Lisa Emhofer

She is a research assistant at the Institute of Analytical Chemistry, Johannes Kepler University Linz in Austria, focused on studying the interactions of plants with pharmaceuticals.

During her time in the Shimadzu laboratory world she is planning to investigate the metabolism of pharmaceuticals in plants, to identify metabolites and approaches for their analysis at trace levels.
