  • International research challenge seeks solutions for logistics of the future10. February 2021
    The human race is becoming increasingly mobile and long commutes to the workplace are the norm. At the same time, the amount of goods sent via the road network continues to rise. This is causing established transport systems to quickly reach their limits. To relieve the pressure on these systems,...
  • With induction against coronaviruses14. January 2021
    The extent to which smear infections are responsible for the spread of the coronavirus has not yet been sufficiently scientifically clarified. The research group of Prof. Dr. Karl Mandel, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy, FAU, is investigating how infection with SARS-CoV-2 or other viruses...
  • New mathematical model: How dangerous bacteria form colonies13. January 2021
    Disease-causing microbes as well as cancer cells gang together to form larger structures – and only then become dangerous to humans. Scientists at FAU, at Max-Planck-Zentrum für Physik und Medizin in Erlangen and Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden have now presented a new mathematical...
  • Patterns in primordial germ cell migration8. January 2021
    Whenever an organism develops and forms organs, a tumour creates metastases or the immune system becomes active in inflammation, cells migrate within the body. As they do, they interact with surrounding tissues which influence their function. The migrating cells react to biochemical signals, as well as to biophysical properties of...
  • eROSITA finds large-scale bubbles in the halo of the Milky Way10. December 2020
    Astronomers have detected a remarkable new feature in the first all-sky survey map produced by the eROSITA X-ray telescope on SRG: a huge circular structure of hot gas below the plane of the Milky Way occupying most of the southern sky. A similar structure in the Northern sky, the “North...
