Named the queen of Belgrade by EBSA.tv, Diana Stateczny became Europe’s 2019 snooker champion. Her 24 years of training at the table with a decade dedicated to snooker paid off.
Her victory is impressive. She doesn’t train like the others, she works full time on top of training. To a certain extent, she admits her work is part of her training and it contributed to make her the person she is today: down to earth, focused and dynamic.
“When I go play snooker after a working day behind the microscope, I have learned how to stay present, focused, and work on my endurance. My job also helped me become a more flexible person. When I went to Ireland for a few weeks, I did not train at all. On my return, I realized how grateful I was to play snooker again and this break brought me a lot.”
Discrete, calm yet ambitious, Diana is a confident women who constantly seeks to grow both at work and in snooker. When she works, she is concentrated, disciplined and precise, the same way she plays.
“phenox is proud to have Diana on the team and we are thrilled about her great victory”, says Dr.-Ing. Hermann Monstadt, managing partner at phenox.
The „AntiThromb“ project is announced to be the winner of the KMU-NetC competition of the Federal Ministry of Education and Researsch and therefore receives an enormous funding out of federal resources. The goal of the phenox project is to develop a path-breaking coating, which imitates the natural vessel wall, to be used on implants for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. The use of such a coating it would make it possible to reduce lifelong medication which still is the current standard.Such a medication is necessary to prevent the formation of a thrombus caused by the use of implants in the cerebral artery and therefore presents the standardized procedure. „For patients where medications do not take effect or are not favorable for other clinical reasons, coated implants could be a promising alternative.” says phenox CEO and managing partner Dr.-Ing. Hermann Monstadt. The challenges of developing such a technology consist in the processing of innovative combinations of raw material, the specialized coating technology as well as the production of the filigree implant structures. Through surface coating the implant is made almost “invisible” to the human immune system to prevent any kind of thromboembolic reactions.The overall volume of the „AntiThromb“ funding project comprises of 2.1 million Euro and is planned to be ongoing for 24 months. Apart of phenox GmbH, being in the production of medical products for the treatment of neurovascular strokes for more than 10 years, other Bochum located companies take part as well. Those are femtos GmbH, a start-up company specialized on miniaturized laser polishing procedure, the department for engineering of Ruhr-University Bochum, Knappschaftschaftskrankenhaus Bochum Hospital as well as the Leibniz Institute of Analytical Sciences –ISAS – e.V. Dortmund and OxProtext GmbH located in Münster. The project is coordinated by NanoMikroWerkstoffPhotonik.NRW Cluster.The support measure „„KMU-NetC“ of the 10-point-programm „priority for the middle class“ the Federal Ministry for Education and Science supports small and medium sized companies in regional networks and clusters. These companies are especially challenged by continuously renewing their processes, products, services and business models in terms of opening up new market potentials. A helpful factor is the association with other companies, universities or research institutes, who have already been successful at developing similar innovation strategies. Experiences and competences are being shared which alleviates and accelerates innovation in the mid-sized sector.
