Andrea Hornberger received the annual prize for Outstanding Master’s Thesis by Students of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology from the company Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co. KG for her work on the non-invasive diagnosis of endometriosis using Raman spectroscopy, which the Biberach University of Applied Sciences student performed at the Fraunhofer IGB. Endometriosis is a painful and common women’s disorder in which the womb lining grows outside of the uterine cavity. With the help of Raman spectroscopy it will be considerably easier to detect the disease in the future.
