The eye of the beholder – histological image wins photo competition

(25.02.2019)

Scientific results are evaluated based on objective criteria, while beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Time and again research yields images which are perceived as beautiful, yet this subjective aspect is often overlooked. A contest organized by the MuSkITYR aimed to bring them into the spotlight. Under the headline Science meets Art they were looking for images from the field of musculoskeletal research which they jury then assessed for their artistic value.

Best Abstract Award at the LBG Health Science Meeting 2018 for Susanne Drechsler

(21.12.2018)

Susanne Drechsler received a best abstract award for her work “Characterization of microbial spread during abdominal sepsis by Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)” at the LBG Health Science Meeting 2018.

Sepsis is a life-threatening organ-dysfunction caused by a dys-regulated immune response to an infection. This study compared two methods for identification and characterization of bacteria in the circulation and the abdominal fluid during abdominal sepsis. Microbiology cultures, the standard method, were compared to NGS, a faster and more sensible method for detection of cell-free bacterial DNA.
