Researchers at FAU have conducted a case study proving the negative impact political conflicts have on research. They examined scientific publications from the last three decades describing fossils in amber from Myanmar. Their results indicate that the increased research interest in Myanmar amber is explicitly linked to major political, legal and economic changes.

A research team from FAU has investigated whether artificial intelligence can recognize based on MRI images of hands whether patients are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or psoriatic arthritis (PsA). The outcome: AI was able to differentiate between the two types in 75 percent of cases.

Researchers from all disciplines rely on their work being evaluated fairly and correctly, as this determines not only their reputation in research but also significant amounts of their funding. The German Research Foundation (DFG) has published a package of measures to assess research more fairly. But will this really lead to change? We asked researchers at FAU what they think.
