The medical researcher and EPFL professor Andrea Ablasser studies how cells defend themselves against viral and bacterial attacks. She receives the National Latsis Prize 2018 in recognition of her excellent research work on immunity.
In contrast to acquired immunity and its targeted, but slow, production of antibodies against specific pathogens, innate immunity reacts immediately: by means...01.11.2018 | Read more
When bones break more easily in old age, osteoporosis is often to blame. However, the cause of the disease and how it develops is not yet sufficiently understood. An interdisciplinary team of scientists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the Helmholtz Zentrum für Materialien und Energie in Berlin (HZB) is now developing a new imaging process to solve this problem and facilitate successful treatment more quickly. The aim of the new process is to enable x-ray microscopy to be carried out on living subjects. The European Research Council (ERC) is funding the project with an ERC Synergy Grant worth 12.3 million euros.
With life expectancy on the rise throughout the world, there has been a corresponding rise in the number of patients who suffer from osteoporosis. 27 million...31.10.2018 | Read more

The German national Excellence Strategy has decided which new Clusters of Excellence will be funded from 2019 onwards. On September 27, 2018, the selection of 57 research alliances as Clusters of Excellence was announced. These winners were chosen from 88 full proposals and 195 original applications. The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) was involved in four applications, all of which were selected for funding as Clusters of Excellence. In Stuttgart, MPI-IS scientists were directly involved in both of the successful proposals at the University of Stuttgart. In Tübingen, MPI-IS is involved in two of the University of Tübingen's three approved clusters.
The Stuttgart Cluster of Excellence, "Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture" (ICDCA) highlights strong research areas at the...08.10.2018 | Read more
Quantum technologies serve as a basis for extremely fast computers and for absolutely secure data transmission. Less known is that these novel technologies can also be used to perform complete computations on a remote quantum server without having to divulge any information about the data or the calculations themselves. Such innovative applications are the topic of the project "Silicon photonics in secure quantum networks – SiSiQ", led by Prof. Stefanie Barz at the Institute of Functional Matter and Quantum Technologies of the University of Stuttgart. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research is now funding the project within the "Quantum Futur" framework with 3.6 million Euros.
Digitization and networking are the basis of modern society. Nowadays, not only are IT applications outsourced to the ‘Cloud’, but also real objects are linked...12.09.2018 | Read more
