University researchers improve super-resolution microscopy

They can make tiny cell structures visible: cutting-edge light microscopes offer resolutions of a few tenths of a nanometre—in other words, a millionth of a millimetre. Until now, super-resolution microscopes were much slower than conventional methods, because more or finer image data had to be recorded. Together with partners from Jena, researchers from Bielefeld University have now developed the super-resolution SR-SIM process further. The academics show that SR-SIM is also possible in real time and at a very high imaging rate—and thus suitable for observing movements of very small cell particles, for example. Their findings have been published today (20 September) in the journal “Nature Communications”.[Weiterlesen]

Research on the good life

In recent decades, the centrally planned socialist economy in countries such as Laos, China, and Vietnam has been replaced by a market economy that remains under the political rule of the Communist party. The resulting changes to society have had profound implications on the idea of the good life—from deliberations on housing to those around religion. This is the topic of the conference entitled ‘The Good Life in Late Socialist Asia: Aspirations, Politics, and Possibilities’ to be held from 16 to 18 September at Bielefeld University's Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF). The conference also marks the launch of the ‘WelfareStruggles’ project for which the social anthropologist Professor Dr Minh Nguyen is receiving an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council—one of the most important EU research grants.[Weiterlesen]

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded an ERC Starting Grant to the Bielefeld mathematician Dr Dawid Kielak for his innovative approaches to research on geometric group theory, a field of mathematics. The European Union uses this award to promote early-career scientists with an excellent scientific track record who also show great promise. Dawid Kielak’s research will receive roughly 1.5 million euro over a period of 5 years. He is the second young academic at Bielefeld to be awarded this special grant within a year and the fifth researcher at Bielefeld University to receive an ERC grant - one of the most important lines of EU research funding.[Weiterlesen]
