Aid Programs at TUM for Our Community Members Affected by War in the Ukraine

The war in the Ukraine has plunged countless numbers of people into adversity. We at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) stand in solidarity with those affected and are thus launching two aid programs of our own. These programs are intended for researchers from the Ukraine and affected TUM students.

    When quantum particles fly like bees

    Quantum simulator provides insights into the dynamics of complex quantum systems

    A quantum system consisting of only 51 charged atoms can assume more than two quadrillion different states. Calculating the system's behavior is a piece of cake for a quantum simulator. Yet even with today's supercomputers it is almost impossible to verify the result. A research team from the University of Innsbruck and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now shown how these systems can be described using equations from the 18th century.

    University didactics for the talents of the future

    These are the goals TUM has set itself for the development of teaching

    A central pillar of the future concept TUM Agenda 2030 is the teaching reform, which documents the commitment of TUM to a fundamental transformation in teaching. The Technical University of Munich wants to create a framework for young talents to live out and develop their abilities, creativity and curiosity on a new level. To this end, the Technical University of Munich is questioning old habits, building new structures and developing teaching formats that transcend disciplinary boundaries.

    A repair program for the heart

    Cardiac progenitor cells generate healthy tissue after a heart attack

    Following a heart attack, the human body is incapable of repairing lost tissue due to the heart’s inability to generate new muscle. However, treatment with heart progenitor cells could result in the formation of functional heart cells at injured sites. This new therapeutic approach is introduced by an international team in Nature Cell Biology. The aim is to start clinical studies within the next two years.
