Flows Govern how Veins Adapt
The physics of flows plays a fundamental role in the organization of networks, including the complex circulatory system. Karen Alim and her team are investigating how flows lead to blood vessels forming and vanishing.
Defeating Diseases with Artificial Intelligence
Fabian Theis harnesses artificial intelligence and machine learning to make large volumes of data available to users. Above all, he strives to understand the behavior of cells.
Cancer Treatment without Collateral Damage
The startup Plectonic has developed a nanoswitch made from DNA that enables targeted antibody immunotherapies.
Saving energy, promoting autonomous driving and improving safety are goals that many cities share. But how can we achieve them? Urban simulations developed by Thomas H. Kolbe provide answers to such questions.
The World’s Largest Quantum Objects
Eva Weig develops sensors which are at the same time macroscopic mechanical objects and quantum objects. The extremely small strings made of semiconductor material could one day detect tiny magnetic fields and forces.
