Categories: Lifetime Achievement and Special Recognition – 2003

Inge Schmitz-Feuerhake’s life’s work is determined by her scientific achievements in the research of long-term effects in the low-radiation range and their measurability. Exemplary for her commitment is the search of more than ten years for the causes of the accumulation of leukaemia in children in the vicinity of the Geesthacht nuclear facilities. Schleswig-Holstein was therefore given a leukaemia commission. She received the NFFA for her life’s work.
