    Award for innovative separation method

    Novel system for preparative DNA separation wins in first phase of nationwide business plan competition Science4Life

    A novel system for preparative DNA separation developed by the team Elec2phoresis (advised by Prof. Dr. Steffen Hardt) is among the three winners in phase 1 of the nationwide business plan competition Science4Life. The presented separation method had the potential to help improve Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies the jury said.

    Taking energetic action against climate change

    The new Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio focuses on combustion processes and their optimization. Image: Reactive Flows and Diagnostics

    DFG to fund new Collaborative Research Centre on efficient combustion technologies

    The CRC/Transregio “Near-Wall Turbulent Chemically Reacting Multiphase Flows” is concerned with important aspects of combustion processes. The presence of walls has an important influence on the behaviour of chemically reacting flows. Near-wall processes impact on technological applications in energy engineering such as engines, gas turbines and power plants.
