Novel way to fill lithium-ion cells faster

Scientists at the Technical University of Munich along with the Bosch scientists have created a way that use neutrons to analyze the filling of lithium-ion...
Patients who generally suffer from severe anxiety are likely to seek medical treatment sooner. Then diagnosis with the help of an electrocardiogram (ECG, see image) and drug therapies can start earlier. This improves the chance of survival

Severe anxiety is likely to heed the symptoms of a heart attack

Fear is a normal human reaction that protects us by signaling danger. It begins with a frightening stimulus and ends with your body preparing to...

Scientists developed visual information system for the hearing-impaired

A new visual information system developed by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) for hearing-impaired employees in logistics. It involves data glasses display information relevant to the...
Cyclic hexapeptide in its bioactive form with the integrin-binding tripeptide sequence arginine-glycine-aspartic acid: Green spheres represent carbon atoms, red oxygen atoms, blue nitrogen atoms and white hydrogen atoms. Yellow spheres represent the two N-methyl groups and dashed orange lines show the two intramolecular hydrogen bonds. Arrangement (clockwise): arginine (top), glycine, aspartic acid, alanine, N-methylated alanine, N-methylated D-valine

Scientists determined how peptides can be designed for medication

Peptides i.e., short amino acid chains monitor the main mechanism of the body. If using it for medications, it represents a billion-dollar market in the pharmaceutical...
