Researchers develop innovative organoid model to study pancreatic cancer
Model system provides insight into the growth of pancreatic tumors
Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a novel model system that can be used to precisely track the growth steps and three-dimensional arrangement of pancreatic cancer cells. It also provides the basis for testing and developing therapeutic approaches.
The highest scientific accolade for the second time
Nobel Prize in Chemistry for TUM honorary doctor K. Barry Sharpless
The US university professor and TUM honorary doctor Prof. K. Barry Sharpless is a 2022 Nobel laureate in the field of chemistry. Together with his US colleague Carolyn Bertozzi and the Dane Morten Meldal, he received the award for the development of methods for the goal-oriented formation of biomolecules, as announced by the Nobel Committee of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Tuesday in Stockholm.
TUM alumnus recognized
Nobel Prize for quantum researcher Anton Zeilinger
TUM alumnus and worldwide leading quantum researcher Anton Zeilinger has won this year's Nobel Prize in Physics. Together with two colleagues from France and the USA, he is being honored for his groundbreaking experiments with entangled quantum states, according to the statement made by the Nobel Committee of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Tuesday in Stockholm.
Machine learning improves climate models
Climate simulation more realistic with Artificial Intelligence
Accurately modeling extreme precipitation events remains a major challenge for climate models. These models predict how the earth's climate may change over the course of decades and even centuries. To improve them especially with regard to extreme events, researchers now use machine learning methods otherwise applied to image generation.
Event with Bavarian Minister President Söder and Minister Blume
Groundbreaking for TUM Hyperloop test segment in Ottobrunn/Taufkirchen
The next milestone for the Technical University of Munich (TUM) Hyperloop research program has been achieved. The groundbreaking for the 24-meter-long TUM Hyperloop test segment took place on September 30, 2022 at the Ottobrunn/Taufkirchen site. The event was attended by Bavaria's Minister President Dr. Markus Söder and the Bavarian Minister of Science and the Arts Markus Blume. The test segment is the first of its kind in Europe.
New insights into quantum phenomena at phase transitions
Quantum matter: entanglement of many atoms detected for the first time
In the past, quantum phenomena could be investigated only in the realm of just a few atoms. A research team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Technical University of Dresden (TUD) has now discovered conditions for which quantum entanglement dominates on much larger scales. The results suggest new approaches to the exploration of quantum phenomena and their practical applications such as quantum computing.
TUM Science Magazine „Faszination Forschung“
Latest Issue on Smart Mobility
Mobility and goods transport have to become more climate-friendly, low-noise, low-emitting, intelligent and connected in the future. In addition, it is vital that we embed new forms of mobility into existing infrastructures and integrate them into highly livable urban design. This issue of "Faszination Forschung" is dedicated to the topic of smart mobility. We share some fascinating insights with you into the ideas, goals and achievements of our researchers.
Detailed images of cells with X-ray contrast agents
How contrast agents disperse inside cells
Contrast agents are often used to improve the imaging of soft tissue in micro-computed tomography (microCT). Now a research team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has investigated how these agents disperse inside cells. Their findings could improve the assessment and further development of contrast agents and might contribute to future medical diagnostics.
Comparative study by TUM and DSW for 2021
DAX Managing Board members enjoy 24 percent income hike
In 2021 Managing Board members of companies listed on the German stock index DAX (Deutschen Aktienindex) earned an average of 24 percent more than they did in the previous year, according to the results of an annual comparative study conducted by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and German investor protection advocate Deutsche Schutzvereinigung für Wertpapierbesitz (DSW).
Study shows molecular profile of 19th-century beer sample
Scientific analysis of Germany’s oldest beer
Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have opened a sample of lager beer that was stored at constant room temperature for over 140 years. The beer, brewed in 1885, was analyzed in terms of its sensory properties and chemical composition. The results offer insights into technological aspects of historical brewing.
