International dairy award goes to Danish-Swedish researcher from Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen

19.11.2008
Professor Ylva Ardö, Faculty of Life Sciences, has been granted the prestigious 2008 IDF Award for her significant contribution to dairy research worldwide. Professor Ardö is the first woman and the first researcher from Scandinavia to receive the award.

The award was presented during the IDF Open Forum on Present and Future Work, at the International Dairy Federation (IDF) World Dairy Summit in Mexico.

Professor Ylva Ardö has developed a new technique to preserve milk samples using bronopol, which is not detrimental to health, for analysis of milk for payment and breeding. The technique is useful for spectroscopic as well as laboratory reference methods analyzing e.g. fat, protein, lactose and cell content and is today used by most routine analysis laboratories for milk samples in Europe, North America and Australia.

She is an initiator of a concept for a new variety of highly appreciated low-fat semi-hard cheese (10% fat) that is produced by dairy companies since more than 15 years. The first developed cheese variety has won several prices. The concept has later been applied by the large international culture producing companies.

Professor Ylva Ardö is a pioneer for using Lactobacillus helveticus as ripening culture in cheese made with mesophilic starter and has also contributed to characterization of the non-starter microflora and its synergy with starter in ripening of European cheese.

Moreover, Professor Ylva Ardö has played a leading role in the development of analysis methods for characterization for cheese ripening in international cooperation.

Within the international education in dairy technology field, Professor Ylva Ardö has been the initiator and driving force behind internationalization of the worldwide renowned Danish dairy education MSc programme at Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The programme is characterised by a high academic level at as well as close relations to production.

Professor Ardö has been a professor of dairy technology at Faculty of Life Sciences since 2003. Earlier this year, she was given the Swiss Cheese Award for “Best Cheese Scientist Worldwide” in Bern, Switzerland.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
