SciFiMed is a multi-disciplinary project that combines fundamental immunological research with novel nanomaterial biosensor development translated into proof-of-principle diagnostics. International experts as well as biotechnology enterprises and health institutions are involved in the project.
Theological findings on apocryphal writings: Could they foster conflict resolution? Yes they could, say scholars at the Regensburg Centre for Advanced Studies Beyond Canon_.
At RCI, the Regensburg Center for Interventional Immunology, international research groups develop immunotherapies and cellular therapies in order to help treating patients suffering from tumors, chronic inflammation or autoimmunity.
Rupert Huber’s experimental work in terahertz and solid-state physics at the interface of optics and electronics is internationally renowned. His fundamental research is used in ultrafast atomic-resolution microscopes and quantum information processing.
UR researcher completes 40-year-old Harvard excavation
The production of offspring involves costs for the own body. Therefore, in many animal species a high reproductive success at a young age is associated with a shortened lifespan. Queens of social insects such as ants, bees, wasps, and termites are an exception: they live very long lives and are highly productive until the end of their days, so they do not seem to age. Part of the mystery of how they do this has now been solved in the publication "Late-life fitness gains and reproductive death in Cardiocondyla obscurior ants", produced by a DFG-funded research group (FOR2281 Sociality and the reversal of the fecundity/longevity trade off).
Scientists from University of Regensburg, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Moscow institute of Physics and Technology, and University of Kansas have discovered abnormally strong light absorption in graphene. The effect arises from the conversion of ordinary electromagnetic waves into super-slow surface waves running through graphene. This behavior could serve as the basis for extremely sensitive infrared and terahertz detectors much smaller than existing ones, with similar absorption efficiency. The investigations were carried out in the framework of the Collaborative Research Centre 1277 and published in the prestigious journal Nature Physics.
UR scientists explore electronic circuits without heat dissipation
Physicists from the University of Regensburg publish results in the internationally renowned journal “Nature Communications”
A large international research collaboration led by Dr Kai-Qiang Lin and Professor John Lupton from the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics at the University of Regensburg has been able to measure the effect of electrons with negative mass in novel semiconductor nanostructures. The international team includes scientists from Berkeley and Yale (USA), Cambridge (England) and Tsukuba (Japan).
