Research Training Group 2154 - Materials for Brain



  • 23.-24.03.2021: RTG 2154 Online Retreat
    Due to the coroapandemic, face-to-face events are still not possible. Thus, the RTG 2154 held its retreat online on March 23 and 24, 2021.
     Five of our associated scientists presented in short talks the methods they apply in their research and the expertise they can offer to the RTG projects. Over the two days, in small groups the PhD students had the opportunity to present their projects to the other PhD students, the PIs and associated scientists. In the subsequent discussions, the PhD students received feedback and new ideas for their project as well as for new collaborations with other projects or the associated scientists. Between the discussion events, there were lectures on new ways of administering drugs to the brain, an introduction to the development of brain tumors and their treatment, and an overview of advanced 3D print techniques.

  • 18.03.2021: Press release on RTG research work on hydrogel for medical applications
    Margarethe Hauck, doctoral researcher in project P3, and Christine Arndt, doctoral researcher at the Institute for Material Science, are the lead authors of a recently published article in the prestigious journal Nano Letters Link. In close collaboration with various working groups, the research team was able to develop a hydrogel that boasts an ideal combination: it is not only electrically conductive, but also retains its original level of elasticity. For the conductivity, the scientists used graphene, a material that has already been used in other production approaches.
