Education: MSc in Molecular Biology, University of Vienna, Austria
Favorite Scientist: Jane Goodall (born 1934), for her peaceful approach to studying chimpanzees while protecting their natural habitat, and her continuing efforts to inspire youth to take (conservation) matters into their own hands. And Robert Ahrends (born 1979), for helping me pay my bills. 🙂
Hobbies: Hiking, music, puzzles, travel
Nina Troppmair
Research Interests: Developing lipidomics workflows to dissect the role of sphingolipids, especially in adipogenesis.
Education: MSc in Chemistry, University of Vienna, Austria
Favorite Scientist: Rosalind Franklin (1920 – 1958) for her contribution to the discovery of the structure of DNA, which were largely recognized as such only posthumously.
Hobbies: Skiing, climbing, swimming
Alexander Wenger
Research Interests: Method development for the investigation of disease related changes of the proteome.
Education: MSc in Medical Biology, University of Salzburg, Austria.
Favorite Scientist: George de Hevesy (1885 – 1966) for his outstanding achievements in the development of isotopes as tracers to study chemical and biological processes.

Bianca de Jonckheere
Research Interests: Interaction of proteins and lipids in megakaryocyte differentiation
Education: M.Sc. in Biological Sciences, University of Cologne, Germany
Favorite Scientist:  
Nicholas Flamel (c. 1330 – 1992) and his posthumous reputation as an alchemist who succeeded in making the philosopher’s stone and become immortal through the “elixir of life”. Or, more seriously, Alexander Fleming and his accidental discovery of penicillin in 1928, which revolutionized medicine and raised the hope that anyone could find something great that one wasn’t looking for.
Hobbies: Tennis, beach volleyball, acryl painting, travel
Marcel Benkhoff
Research Interests: Effect of blood lipids on platelet reactivity
Dr. rer. nat in Pharmacy, Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany
Favorite Scientist: 
Linus Pauling (1901 – 1994), who used his outstanding reach as a Nobel laureate in chemistry to fight for disarmament and against war and thus also received the Nobel Peace Prize.
Hobbies: Sports, Cooking, Traveling
Denise Wolrab
Research Interests: Developing methods and strategies for complex bioanalytical research questions, with special focus on separation science hyphenated to mass spectometry such as UHPSFC/MS.
Education: Dr. rer. nat. in Analytical Chemistry, University of Vienna, Austria
Favorite Scientist: Dedicated scientists who are passionate about theor work, yet unfailingly prioritize respectful, supportive, and friendly interractions with one another, serve as a true source of inspiration.
Hobbies: Baking, hiking, watching children movies
Aleksandra Tyjan
Interests: Administration, international and national projects
Education: Mag. in German Studies, University of Łódź, Poland
Favorite Scientist: Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) for his pioneering scientific expeditions and a holistic approach to nature, which had a significant impact on modern environmental research. His interdisciplinary perspective and commitment to connecting various fields of knowledge make him a key figure in the history of natural science.
