Höhere Strukturen, Modulräume und Integrabilität-this is the title of a new collaborative research center at Universität Hamburg. The CRC will focus on the mathematical principles of the quantum world and will receive funding from the German Research Foundation for roughly 4 years starting in January 2024. The CRC Immune-Mediated Glomerular Diseases, which focuses on inflammatory kidney diseases, is also receiving a third round of funding.
The project Professional Teachers- Activities to Promote Subject-Based Learning Under Changing Social Conditions (ProfaLe) ends after more than 8 years. In close collaboration with the Hamburg Center for Teacher Education researchers from Universität Hamburg worked intensively on innovations for Hamburg's teacher education, thus developing and testing basic measures in 4 action areas. All interested parties from research and education in practice can access their findings.
In Germany, 14,000 blood donations per day are needed for operations, accident victims, and patients with immunological disorders. But how can we motivate people to donate blood? A new study shows how blood banks can text message blood donors with information about the use of their donation-and how well it works.
The structure-function dynamic of proteins, the cultural history of artificial cooling, and new methods for analyzing Buddhist texts: the European Research Council is funding 3 new projects through its ERC Synergy Grants. Three researchers from Universität Hamburg are taking part. The well-funded grants support outstanding research groups in the European Union.
Viewed globally, it is above all individuals and households that are pursuing adaptation to the impacts of climate change; systematic networking of the various groups affected is lacking. This is the conclusion reached by an international team of experts from Universität Hamburg's Cluster of Excellence for climate research (CLICCS) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU). Their meta-study was just released in the journal -Nature Climate Change.
Whether at the dentist or orthopedist: X-ray examinations are among the most common diagnostic procedures. The research of Theresa Staufer and her team is intended to further develop a compact X-ray system that will make special analyses in biomedical research much easier to implement and thus more accessible. The project is supported by the new funding program -Innovation Academy for Applied Infection Research- of the Joachim Herz Foundation.
A European research team led by the Department of Chemistry at Universität Hamburg presents a study showing high-resolution structures of 17 distinct antibiotic ribosomal compounds. The knowledge could pave the way for the development of new antibiotics to combat multidrug-resistant bacteria. The results were published in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology.
What incentives outside of remuneration motivate people to work? Are these different for men and for women? Iris Kesternich from Universität Hamburg is addressing these and other questions in a new research project. Her work has been granted a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for the next 5 years.
The report follows on the heels of the University's sustainability report (2015-2018). The climate protection report is based only on greenhouse gas emissions, not on the entire spectrum of sustainability. A comprehensive report on sustainability in research, teaching, knowledge exchange, and administration will be published in 2024.
In Germany, 14,000 blood donations are needed every day for operations, accident victims or immunocompromised patients. But how can people be motivated to donate blood? A new study shows how blood donation services can inform donors by text message about the use of their donation - with a positive effect.
A research team led by the Department of Biology at Éniversität Hamburg has discovered, for the first time, the predatory amphipod Rhachotropis abyssalis in 3 different oceans up to 20,000 kilometers apart. In each case, the animals live at depths of more than 3 kilometers. The findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports .
Whether or not people choose to attend a climate protest partly depends on its expected size. When they expect a larger protest, they are less likely to take part - as Universität Hamburg's Cluster of Excellence for climate research (CLICCS) shows in the journal Nature Climate Change.
How can we improve cognitive abilities and feelings of wellbeing in virtual worlds? An international team, led by the Department of Informatics at Universität Hamburg made up of members from the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, has found that the presence of plants in virtual office spaces can improve intellectual productivity, memory, and feelings of well-being. Their results have been published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Dr. Maria-Elena Vorrath receives grant from the Klaus Tschira Booster Fund ¤80,000 for Research Project on Innovative Production of Biochar Biochar has great potential in the fight against climate change, especially in agriculture.
The German Research Foundation (DFG) has admitted the astrophysicist Dr. Jan-Torge Schindler to the Emmy Noether Programme.
