#Research sometimes takes researchers to unusual places - for example the Zugspitze

Instagram post


⛰ Research sometimes takes researchers to unusual places - for example, to the Zugspitze. Contrary to what the great pictures suggest at first glance, Natalie Gray does not deal with weather phenomena or mountain research.

➡ As part of her doctoral thesis, the molecular physician is investigating the interaction of lipids and immune cells in inflammatory skin diseases. With her research data, which she collected in the Department of Experimental Allergology and Dermatology in the Department of Human Medicine, she was recently invited to this year's Winter School of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dermatologische Forschung.

❄ The unusual thing: The three-day event with poster presentations and expert lectures traditionally takes place at an altitude of 2,650 metres below the Zugspitze peak - at the highest environmental research station in Germany, the Schneefernerhaus.

Thank you for the great pictures and good luck with your PhD, dear Natalie!

"We have worked for a long time to successfully lead the Skin Cancer Centre through the initial certification. Thanks to the great performance of everyone involved, we have also successfully passed," Prof. Raap is pleased to say. This award certifies that oncological cancer patients are optimally cared for in every phase of their disease. The basis for future certification is annual proof of compliance with the professional requirements and, for example, the use of an established quality management system.

For the patients of our region, the award means a safeguarding of established structures, a high level of professional performance and the security of being treated by an experienced team with high standards. For the Skin Cancer Centre, this is an award of the highest quality and once again proves the high professional standards that distinguish the University Clinic for Dermatology and Allergology at Oldenburg Hospital.

As a dermatologist, Ulrike Raap is highly biased when she says: "The skin is the most amazing architectural work the body has created." This wonderful shell measures two square metres on an adult, and every square centimetre of it still fascinates the new director of the Clinic for Dermatology and Allergology at the hospital, even after many years of research.
