There are several introductory courses for the international study programmes and welcoming events that those students should attend. Fo...

Nanoparticles are to be used like transporters to deliver medication in a targeted manner exactly where it is required in the human body? All over the world, scientists are working on so-called drug delivery technologies, as are researchers at FAU. The idea is that nanoparticles should react to ultr...

The earliest predators appeared on Earth 480 million years ago – and they even had teeth which were capable of repairing themselves. A team of palaeontologists led by Bryan Shirley and Madleen Grohganz from the Chair for Palaeoenviromental Research at FAU have been able to discover more about how th...

Physicists at FAU have proven that incoming light causes the electrons in warm perovskites to rotate thus influencing the direction of the flow of electrical current. They have thus found the key to an important characteristic of these crystals, which could play an important role in the development ...

Dr. Gonzalo Abellán Sáez, Chair of Organic Chemistry II, has been fascinated by natural sciences from a very young age, possibly inheriting his talent and interest in science from his father, who was himself a chemistry professor. He is particularly interested in developing new materials and studyin...
