The most beautiful Doctor's hat has been chosen! Almost 600 people voted online and selected Friederike Richter's hat as the most beautiful doctoral hat of the last year. Richter works at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Macromolecular Chemistry. The carefully designed hat shows several scenes made with Lego bricks: How she works in the research lab with a test tube, how she climbs a mountain and how she pursues her passion - cooking and baking - in a fully equipped kitchen.

Second place this year went to the hat of Isabel Santos Valentim, who does research at the Leibniz Institute for Research on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI). Third place went to the hat of Anna Schröger from the Institute of Sports Science.
