Markus Sauers spezielle Mikroskopie

Einzelne Molekuele und ihre Dynamik in lebenden Zellen sichtbar machen: Das ist das Ziel von Professor Markus Sauer. Um es zu erreichen, entwickelt der neue Inhaber des Lehrstuhls fuer Biotechnologie und Biophysik der Uni Wuerzburg neueste Techniken der Fluoreszenz-Mikroskopie mit hoher zeitlicher und raeumlicher Aufloesung.

Strength is shore thing for sea shell scientists

A team of materials scientists and chemists have taken inspiration from sea shells found on the beach to create a composite material from dissimilar 'ingredients'. Their technique could be used to make ceramics with high resistance to cracking - which could in turn be used in crack-resistant building materials and bone replacements.
