SPRIND to finance spin-off Plectonic

Nanoswitches for tumor targeting

The Federal Agency for Disruptive Innovation SPRIND will provide funding for the work of Plectonic Biotech in the coming years. The TUM spin-off has developed a nanoswitch that binds immune cells to tumor cells. The goal is to facilitate the development of immunotherapies that target tumors specifically and have fewer side effects.

November 28: Public lecture on the current state of research

War and peace in Ukraine

What can researchers in international relations tell us about the causes of war and the possibilities for restoring peace? And how do these insights contribute to a better understanding of the war in Ukraine? Tim Büthe, a professor of international relations at the Hochschule für Politik at TUM, will provide an accessible overview of the current state of research on November 28 starting at 6 p.m. The event at the TUM Think Tank is open to the public and will also be live streamed.

Groundbreaking calculations by TUM researchers

Operation of FRM II possible with Low Enriched Uranium

Scientifically speaking it is possible to convert the Research Neutron Source (FRM II) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) for a fuel element with Low Enriched Uranium (LEU). This conclusion is the result of TUM researchers' calculations, which have been independently confirmed by experts in the USA. This establishes the theoretical foundations for implementing state regulatory requirements to discontinue the use of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) as fuel at the FRM II in the future.

Enterprises try to limit attention for data losses

Companies report data leaks on heavy news days

Many companies carefully time disclosures on losses of sensitive customer data. A new study based on publicly traded US companies shows that companies tend to announce data leaks on days when other news dominates the headlines. This limits the impact on the share price, but also increases the risk to persons whose data are leaked.

Neutrons from FRM II expose crystal structure of carbonic acid

Elusive carbonic acid: it really exists!

The existence of carbonic acid has long been the subject of debate: theoretically real, but practically impossible to detect. That is because the compound decomposes at the Earth’s surface. A German-Chinese team of researchers working at the FRM II Research Neutron Source at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now made the crystalline structure of carbonic acid molecules visible for the first time.
