Shimadzu’s lab4you student program

In 2015, Shimadzu introduced the lab4you student program for all talents needing free lab space for their research.

Shimadzu’s lab4you supports young, enthusiastic scientists with an outstanding topic of research, by offering instrument time on the entire range of the company’s state-of-the-art (U)HPLC and (U)HPLC/MS/MS equipment. Many interesting applications were proposed from all over Europe, and decision making was a challenging task.

That is why the lab4you selection committee is happy to announce that not just one, but two promising candidates have the opportunity to advance their research using the equipment in the Shimadzu Laboratory World in Duisburg, Germany.

The researchers are:

Carola Schultz, a PhD student at the MEET Battery Research Center (University of Muenster, Germany) in the competence areas analytic & recycling and aging & safety. Her research aim is the investigation of organic Lithium-ion battery (LiB) electrolytes with HPLC-UV/VIS and HPLC-MS.

Katarzyna Brama, a PhD student at the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. Her work comprises metal complex and bioligand studies in tomato and garden cress extracts performed by means of hyphenated techniques.

She’ll look at the identification of metal complexes with HILIC ESI MS/MS and new determination methods for phytochelatin in natural samples using HPLC with fluorescence detection.
