Sepsis, often termed blood poisoning, is a life-threatening condition. It can occur as a complication of any infection and is the world’s leading cause of death from infection. We provide information on prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
As a visitor for this year’s “long night of sciences” you can give us your feedback on your impressions on the evening through a short questionnaire. Immediately afterwards you can see, how your responses are analysed and contribute to the overall results
What makes us different from animals? What can we do that animals cannot? In a lecture with many photos and film sequences, Dr. Juliane Bräuer presents exciting experiments and gives surprising insights from comparative psychology.
French and Spanish are two languages on which the sun never sets. Both languages give us access to a wide variety of cultures. During our journey around the Romance world, we want to give you some reasons why this cultural diversity is worth exploring.
Nanomaterials are omnipresent in the food sector and can therefore enter the digestive tract in various ways. We show you demonstratively the great importance of investigating potential hazards through nanoparticles.
Since the election of Trump Fake News are on everyone’s lips. What are Fake News? Is it a new phenomenon or are we just witnessing a new quality? And why and how does science increasingly offer its capacities for political purposes?
Is it possible to purify water with sound, light, electricity or coal? What does birth control pills or toilet paper have to do with water quality? Learn more about the latest techniques for water purification and find out why we need it in the future!
Light and color, two phenomena which are closely connected with each other, are presented in short experiments in a student-friendly manner. Participants will be invited to be amazed, to explore, to discover and to spring into action.
Following the tracks of Max Wien and his successor we surf through the wide range of electric magnetic waves. From 20 000 km to 400 nm wavelength – listening to the sounds of railway, kitchen equipment, submarine and short wave transmitters or light.
SCHOTT bioslides constitute the transparent foundation for fast and reliable diagnoses with minimal effort. Learn more about a modern development direction in biotechnology and what role SCHOTT plays in it.
How do cells sense their environment and communicate with each other? As key sensors of a cell membrane receptors are essential for this function. We investigate their function using advanced microscopy and computer simulations.
Today, computer science is more and more influencing all areas of science, industry and society. The Institute is giving demos illustrating selected research projects from distributed information systems, advanced computing and computer vision.
Experience the world of micro- and nano-technologies. On a walkabout, you can follow along interactive exhibits the development and application of the technologies from the cleanroom up to the sensor used in aerospace.
Genetic changes can be involved in the development of heart muscle diseases. On the example of concerned genes we will show the visualisation of parts of DNA by UV light, giving some insights in the “genetic fingerprinting”.
The Michael Stifel Center Jena (MSCJ) promotes interdisciplinarity in data-driven and simulation-based sciences, connecting natural, social sciences and humanities with mathematics and computer science.
