Materials scientists at FAU have demonstrated for the first time in an experiment that connections between ice crystals are responsible for snow suddenly giving way when loaded with weight.
Dendritic cells represent an important component of the immune system: they recognize and engulf invaders, which subsequently triggers a pathogen-specific immune response. Scientists gained substantial knowledge of human dendritic cells, which might contribute to the development of immune therapies in the future.
When migrants or refugees are the topic of discussion, the words ‘Islam’ and ‘Muslims’ usually appear too. Cultural geographer Prof. Dr. Georg Glasze believes that this is a problem and aims to investigate the issue in a new research project.
Single-atom motor chosen as one of the ‘Top Ten Breakthroughs of the Year’
FAU chemists are developing an artificial intelligence application which can predict which molecule structures will produce or suppress specific odours. The Volkswagen Foundation is funding the project.
A new research project aims to develop an innovative hybrid device that combines two different medical imaging technologies and will help stroke patients in particular to receive quicker diagnosis and treatment.
Doctoral candidate Mohamed Mahmoud is studying why fish sometimes smells ‘fishy’ and why customers often smell other aromas when they buy fish.
The European Commission recently began funding the Marie Curie Training Network ELENA, which involves FAU
The emission of electrons from an illuminated material was a driving element in the development of quantum mechanics. FAU scientists have successfully controlled the photoemission of nanotransmitters to an extent never before achieved.
FAU researchers demonstrated the significant influence of new signal paths of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS)
