Melanin as a new diagnosis and treatment tool for tumors
German scientists created melanin-loaded cell membrane derived nanoparticles, which improved tumor imaging in an animal model while also slowing the growth of the tumor.
Hearing like a dinosaur
Alligators use neural maps to localize the source of a sound the same way birds do. A new study suggests that dinosaurs also used this strategy.
Organic farming has lower yield stability
A team of researchers has investigated how organic and conventional agriculture differ in terms of yield stability over several years.
How power-to-gas technology can be green and profitable
Flexible production facilities could make hydrogen production based on wind power a key component in the transition of the energy system.
New record data transfer speed in fiber optic network
For the first time ever, data has been transmitted through a fiber optic network at a speed of 500 gigabits per second over a single wavelength channel.
How rapeseed could be used as a protein source for human nutrition
A German team of researchers develops rapeseed for the human protein supply.
Communication between cells
German scientists have for the first time created artificial cell assemblies that can communicate with each other.
Communication training with artificial intelligence
German scientists have developed an online training tool that uses artificial intelligence to evaluate users’ speaking skills and personal characteristics.
Electric heating could save CO2 emissions
A German study proposes a way to even out the peaks and troughs of renewable energy production: Surplus output could be used for heating and cooling purposes.
TUM satellite launched into space
German students have developed a fully functional mini-satellite. A Falcon 9 rocket launched in California carried the satellite into orbit, where it will among other things collect research data.
Radical changes through virtual reality
A study by German economists shows that drastic disruption lies ahead for seven different sectors, impacting existing products, business models and production processes.
Comprehensive assessment of the Sun’s fusion processes
Researchers have published the hitherto most comprehensive analysis of neutrinos from the Sun’s core processes.
Scientists develop new quantum circuit
Researchers have demonstrated for the first time that quantum computers do indeed offer advantages over conventional computers.
“eRay” – the new aircraft that uses less fuel
With a new aircraft design, students from Munich managed to radically reduce energy consumption.
What even Einstein didn’t know
A team of researchers determines absolute duration of photoelectric effect for the first time.
A thinner bridge with enormous strength
The first railroad bridge in Germany made of ultra-high performance concrete has gone into operation on Bavaria’s Tegernsee-Bahn railroad route.
Food activates brown fat
German researchers were able to demonstrate that food also increases the thermogenesis of brown fat, and not just cold as previously assumed.
The first “unicorn” from TUM
Celonis has taken its place among the “unicorns”, as the world’s most successful start-ups are known.
Pungent tasting substance in ginger reduces bad breath
A German research team has investigated the effects of food components on the molecules dissolved in saliva.
Allergy potential of strawberries and tomatoes depends on the variety
Many people are allergic to strawberries and tomatoes, especially if they have been diagnosed with birch pollen allergy.
CEOs change course when they resemble their predecessors
The greater the similarity of newly appointed CEOs to their predecessors, the more likely they are to change the company’s strategy.
The transparent soccer player
A sports data scientist has developed a model that can be used to measure how likely a team is to score a goal during a match.
Unexpected efficacy against cancers
A new anti-cancer drug may be effective against a wider range of cancers than previously thought.
Mixed forests: ecologically and economically superior
Mixed forests are more productive than monocultures. This is true on all five continents, and particularly in regions with high precipitation.
Center for Quantum Engineering
Creation of a new central institute at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) that will link this focus with the engineering sciences and aims to transfer quantum systems into real-world applications more quickly.
