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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
