Without intensive fundamental research, it will never be possible to successfully combat illnesses such as Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s. Simon Ebbinghaus has now been honoured in the USA for his contribution to research.
How many atoms are necessary to write the acronym of Ruhr-Universität Bochum?
The Resolv team gives insights into their Excellence Strategy for Solvation Science.
The European Research Council is supporting the catalyst research of Bochum-based scientist Beatriz Roldán Cuenya. Ultimately, this could help to use climate-damaging CO2 in a sensible way.
Every year, RUB invites its international guests to send in their praise, criticism and suggestions for improvement.
Efficiently producing and storing energy – such as for implanted medical systems – is a challenge for our society. A biocatalyst-polymer system could take on both tasks at once.
People who know nothing of interest calculations & Co. rely on friendly advice in financial matters. But is that wise?
They are indispensable in proteins and rubber: bonds between two sulphur atoms that link the long molecules together. If one pulls on the sulphur bridges from outside, unexpectedly complicated processes occur.
Students enjoy it most when they get to make things pop and burn in their chemistry lessons. But do they take away from the experiments what they are supposed to understand?
Nanoparticles could become the key to sustainable energy technologies. Kristina Tschulik has been recently awarded for her research in the field.
In retrospective, it always seems as if gaining new knowledge had been a purposeful process. Christina Brandt can list many examples that prove that this is not true; one of them is the history of cloning.
Science historian Christina Brandt reconstructs the evolution of knowledge. For this purpose, she assumes the role of researchers from decades ago.
An invitation that is not for everyone. Three members of the Cluster of Excellence Resolv will participate.
In Germany, children are separated following four years in primary school. Gabriele Bellenberg criticises this approach. She says: too many children fall by the wayside.
For computers to be able to process the complex knowledge of the world, that knowledge has to be explicitly and logically structured and phrased. Philosophers help to achieve precisely that.
Together with medical informatics and bioinformatics experts, the philosopher is developing computer-based description of the knowledge of the world.
The Bochum-based engineer Alexander Hartmaier is not only involved in his research.
The solvent is far more than just the environment for a chemical reaction.
Nikolai Axmacher discloses the greatest challenges he faced when working with epilepsy patients and why his professional career was not entirely free of risks.
Many people have experienced it in person: a nap after studying helps memorising the new material better. But what kind of processes take place in the brain?
