Jena's influential researchers
Jena’s influential researchers
Two researchers from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena are among the world's most cited scientists in their field: bioinformatician Bas E. Dutilh and medical scientist Andreas Hochhaus. This is confirmed by the "Highly Cited Researchers 2022" ranking published on 15. November 2022 by Clarivate Analytics.

Neural networks predict forces in jammed granular solids
Neural networks predict forces in jammed granular solids
Researchers led by Göttingen University develop new machine-learning method to understand force chains Granular matter is all around us. Examples include sand, rice, nuts, coffee and even snow. These materials are made of solid particles that are large enough not to experience thermal fluctuations. Instead, their state is determined by mechanical influences: shaking produces -granular gases- whilst by compression one gets -granular solids-.

Chemists use light energy to produce small molecular rings
In the search for new active agents in medicine, molecules whose atoms are linked in rings are becoming increasingly important. Such ring systems have particularly suitable properties for producing such active agents and they are driving the development of innovative treatments for malignant tumours, as well as for neurodegenerative and infectious diseases.

Photon-photon interactions in the Standard Model and beyond: New research unit at JGU granted DFG funding
Photon-photon interactions in the Standard Model and beyond: New research unit at JGU granted DFG funding
A pure quantum effect as the key to a better understanding of the subatomic world / New research program in Mainz bundles a wide range of expertise In classical physics, the superposition of light waves resulting in interference is a well-known phenomenon. An interaction of light rays in the sense of a scattering is, however, classically impossible.

New findings on the internal clock of the fruit fly
New findings on the internal clock of the fruit fly
Light as a regulator: Team of researchers demonstrates role of transport proteins in the synchronisation of circadian rhythms Most living organisms have an internal clock which, among other things, controls the sleep-wake rhythm. The internal rhythm lasts approximately one day ("circadian"), i.e. about 24 hours, and is regulated by means of various "clock genes".

Fluid-Mineral Interactions in Rock
Fluid-Mineral Interactions in Rock
Heidelberg geoscientists test new methods to understand the effects of rupture processes in the Earth's interior Spontaneous mineral growth and dissolution in the rock of the Earth's crust, until now observed only by chance and never described or systematically studied, are the focus of a new research project at Heidelberg University.

Bernd U. Schipper from the Faculty of Theology and Bruno Klingler from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences receive a total of 4.3 million euros of funding Dr. Bernd U. Schipper, professor for History of Israel in its Ancient Near Eastern Context, and his team receive a total amount of 2.5 million euros for their project DEMBIB through an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC).

A feeling for touch screens
A feeling for touch screens
The use of touch screens is often difficult, especially for older people, since the information is captured primarily with the eye, but not with the sense of touch. Researchers at the Institute for Engineering Design and Industrial Design (IKTD) at the University of Stuttgart are now developing a technology that can be used to "feel" the information on the touch user interface by means of electrostatic fields.
