Most exciting current project
Exploring alternative strategies for drug testing that reduce the burden of sample collection for the tested individuals without compromising the quality of the analytical result.

Most rewarding moment
Providing the analytical data that helped answer central but yet unsolved questions in complex and difficult cases. There have been a few cases in the past where the unexpected was eventually proven, and while these have been rare examples, they have always justified the effort of critical follow-up.
