Award for Bioinformatics Researcher
Every year the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences (FH OÖ) honors outstanding scientists and scholars actively engaged in research. We are therefore delighted to announce that long-term HEAL member Viktoria Dorfer received the Junior Researcher Award 2012 for her contributions to the field of bioinformatics. Viktoria's research revolves around the development of novel algorithms to identify proteins in mass spectra. She is a core researcher of Stephan Winkler's young bioinformatics research group, whose successful collaboration with the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) was recently rewarded with a prestigious FWF grant.
