The head of the Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart receives 2.5 Mio Euro from the European Research Council (ERC), which funds cutting-edge research in all disciplines.
Eshed Ohn-Bar from CMU receives Humboldt Fellowship and will join AVG in December as a post-doctoral researcher!
Another prestigious fellowship for one of the Postdocs of the Haptic Intelligence Department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems together with researchers at the University of Heidelberg and the University of Stuttgart use a technique called DNA origami to mimic a multitude of vital movements seen in nature, such as the sliding motion exerted by protein motors during cell division. Their invention, which is a thousand times smaller than a human hair, features a preliminary attempt to construct nanoscale analogues of the mysterious natural machines in living cells.
Cyber Valley is featured in a video produced by the Digital BW platform, featuring the initiative as an important part of Baden-Württemberg´s digitization strategy.
