Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have received more than one million euros in the framework of the European Horizon 2020 Initiative. Dr. Tobias Stöger and Dr. Otmar Schmid from the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease and the Comprehensive Pneumology Center (CPC) will be using the funds to develop new tests to assess risks posed by nanomaterials in the airways. This could contribute to reducing the need for complex toxicity tests.
Nanoparticles are extremely small particles that can penetrate into remote parts of the body. While researchers are investigating various strategies for...13.06.2016 | Read more

Prof. Dr. Martin Möller and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Wessling from the DWI – Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials and the RWTH Aachen University both receive an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The European Research Council uses its Advanced Grants to financially support outstanding, well-established scientists with up to 2.5 Million Euro and thereby allows them to pursue groundbreaking high-risk research in Europe. Martin Möller will apply this grant to develop gel-based micro-engines for future applications in biomedicine whereas Matthias Wessling will analyze and optimize mass transport at membrane-fluid interfaces.
Sophisticated micro- and nano-objects, as well as functional materials, are Martin Möller’s expertise. Within his ERC-funded project, he strives to make an...08.04.2016 | Read more

Physicists in Innsbruck have realized the first quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories, building a bridge between high-energy theory and atomic physics. In the journal Nature, Rainer Blatt‘s and Peter Zoller’s research teams describe how they simulated the creation of elementary particle pairs out of the vacuum by using a quantum computer.
Elementary particles are the fundamental buildings blocks of matter, and their properties are described by the Standard Model of particle physics. The...
