2017 challenge focuses on medical engineering to help treat movement disorders
An innovative fluorescence microscopy method makes it possible to image protein structures with a resolution of less than half an Angstrom.
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.
