In order to best protect the health of all university members, the campus may be accessed by students only for the purpose of studies or work that can’t be done remotely.
Experts are convinced that there are undetected antibiotic substances awaiting discovery. They are getting ready to find them.
Elahe Sadeghi’s did her planned internship at the RUB’s Casa cluster of excellence online.
An estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic waste are floating around the oceans. It is high time for alternative materials – biopolymers could help. And they can do much more than that.
As an expert in resource-efficient construction, Professor Annette Hafner advocates the use of wood as a raw material – even taking the entire life cycle of the material into account.

All Aishwarya Deshpande wanted was go back to India for her holidays; she had no idea how this would affect her studies.
Bacterial enzymes are often powerful but also very sensitive catalysts. To call up their performance, they therefore need a special environment.
Efficient catalysts are crucial for energy conversion. However, findings from basic research rarely make it into practice at present.
In hydrogenase enzymes, the transports of protons and electrons have been considered to be separate events until now. However, coupling is the key to success here.
Until now, unwanted by-products have always been produced during the reactions. The catalyst opens up new applications.
In DNA, information is stored in the sequence of chemical building blocks; in computers, information consists of sequences of zeros and ones. Researchers want to transfer this concept to artificial molecules.
Some catalysts show remarkable high activity. Thanks to water.
In 2014, the electronics manufacturer LG introduced a new technology to unlock the display of its mobile phones using a series of taps. This doesn’t make the devices more secure – contradicting LG’s advertisement.
The alliance UNIC has won a grant from the European Commission.
