Three new members elected to the Academy
Fabian Adams starts his project in the group and talks about the potential of miniaturized, minimally invasive medical procedures:
Engineers explore ways to take robotics to the limits of size and function. In the 1966 film Fantastic Voyage, scientists at a U.S. laboratory shrink a submarine called Proteus and its human crew to microscopic size and then inject the vessel into an ailing scientist.
Young scientist honoured for outstanding research in the field of material science
Andrew G. Mark will be awarded this year’s Günter Petzow Prize from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. He will be honoured for his significant contribution to the development of a new nanofabrication technique for manufacturing, precisely and efficiently, hybrid multifunctional nanostructures with diverse 3D shapes.
Dr. med. Fabian Adams is awarded a Ferdinand-Eisenberger fellowship. The scholarships frees Dr. Adams from his clinical duties (University Clinic, Univ. of Freiburg) so that he can devote the next 12 months to research here at the Micro Nano and Molecular Systems lab.
Vision of „Robotics Valley“ in the Neckar-Region
The Max-Planck-Society constructs a new building for the Tübingen location of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. On 27. April 2015 the laying of the cornerstone for that ambitious project took place on the Max Planck Campus Tübingen. From 2017 onwards the new building will provide more than 250 workplaces for scientists and staff. The future-oriented research on intelligent systems will then be performed by scientists in four scientific departments.
Probabilistic Numerical Methods assign Uncertainty to Deterministic Computations
With a new approach, Scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems aim to make numerical algorithms more efficient. During the next five years, this research project will be supported by the Emmy-Noether-Programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG) with nearly a million Euros. The applicant Dr. Philipp Hennig prevailed in a competitive process. With the start of two new PhD students in April this Emmy Noether Group takes up its research activities.
