Students from the Elite Master’s Programme MAP win poster prizes for work supervised by CRC 1411 researchers

In the afternoon of 12 February 2021, the annual Poster Session and Awards Ceremony of the Elite Masters Programme in Advanced Materials and Processes (MAP) took place. Due to the SARS-CoV2 pandemic this event, usually one of the social highlights of the MAP calendar, moved online for the very first time. Among the up to 100 participants were current and prospective MAP students, lecturers, researchers, administrative staff and external guests. 29 posters were presented on a range of topics organized around the four focal subjects of MAP: Advanced Processes, Biomaterials and Bioprocessing, Computational Materials Science and Process Simulation, Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology.

The event was realised using a combination of two complementary online platforms: MURAL for the viewing and of the posters and zoom for plenary sessions (1 minute “superflash” talks on each poster were given) and for individual poster discussions.

Senior attendees of the event voted for their favourite posters and at the final plenary session three prizes were awarded. Due to a tie in the voting there were two first prizes, both going to students whose posters were on projects supervised by CRC 1411 doctoral researchers and principal investigators:

  • Nayeon Kang: Investigation of Surfactant Adsorption Isotherm by Conductivity Measurements (Supervised by Carola Schlumberger from the group of CRC 1411 PI Matthias Thommes)
  • Tatiana Kormilina: Correlative Nanoscale 3D X-ray Microscopy to Investigate the Collagen Fibril Structure and Orientation (Supervised by Silvan Englisch from the group of CRC 1411 PI Erdmann Spiecker)

In this short video, event organiser and CRC 1411 principal investigator Robin Klupp Taylor gives details of how the poster session was held online and introduces the three poster prize winners:
