Andrew Gibson from the Research Group for Biomedical Plasma Technology explains, what will be crucial to translate emerging approaches such as plasma-based cancer therapy, into clinical practice.
A great many everyday technologies would not exist without plasmas. The teams of the Collaborative Research Centres want to share knowledge about their relevance with the public.
Plasmas in liquids have long been used in water purification and wound treatment. Now, they are to improve the efficiency and service life of an electrolysis cell used for C02 conversion.
Cold plasmas and plasma catalytic processes could be used to purify and treat metallurgical gases in the steel industry.
New research identifies regions of greatest climate-driven river flood risk to human lives and food production globally, calling for urgent acceleration of investment in nature-based adaptation plans.
A new technique facilitates something that Moritz Oberberg compares to looking inside an egg while it’s cooking.
Plasmas usually have destructive effects on enzymes. Here, they supply an enzyme with a building block for biocatalysis at the push of a button.
The smaller a plasma, the larger the experimental setup needed to study it. It is worth the effort, because the reaction conditions found in cubic-millimetre-sized plasmas are very much unique.
The distinguished expert on dark matter has thus been awarded a very special honorary title.
And other plans and secrets of the future Rector at Ruhr-Universität.
The world’s leading student top class sports competition is coming to the Rhine-Ruhr region. Bochum will be a host city of the World University Games 2025.
An enzyme could make a dream come true for the energy industry: It can efficiently produce hydrogen using electricity and can also generate electricity from hydrogen.
The Unicenter now has a test centre, where RUB employees and students can take a free coronavirus/Covid-19 test.
For bridges under construction, as little as a fresh to strong wind can be fatal. Potential safety devices are tested in wind tunnels.
The renowned physician and President of Maastricht University is coming to Bochum in autumn 2021. In the history of Ruhr-Universität, he will be the first non-RUB member to assume the office of Rector.
A research team at RUB has discovered the mechanisms by which the coronavirus enters the heart – and how it could be stopped.
Interest groups exert varying degrees of influence on members of the German Bundestag, i.e. the parliament. Business interests are granted more access through informal channels than others.
Biopsychologist Onur Güntürkün and philosopher Heinrich Wansing receive the coveted grant.
Rector Professor Axel Schölmerich addresses all RUB members at the start of lectures.
Optimising electrochemical processes is one of the challenges in developing technologies for renewable energies. New research findings could provide assistance here.
