[27/02/2015] Most disciplines do not rely on paper libraries for their research. Working with tissue and fluid samples that have been donated by patients or healthy volunteers is necessary in medicine. Our camera takes a look at the inner workings of the centralized biomaterial bank at the RWTH Aachen University (RWTH cBMB).Centralized biobanks - Treasure troves of medical research - Read more
[29/10/2014] When a tumor is removed, single cells or cell clusters can remain at the wound edges. They could eventually make another surgery necessary. Prof. Hans-Robert Metelmann and Dr. Christian Seebauer outline in our video how physical plasmas could be used here in the future. Dr. Kai Masur from the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology e.V. explains how plasmas turn off tumor cells.Cancer research – physical plasmas to combat tumor cells - Read more
[15/10/2014] Physiotherapy students have to apply a lot of theoretical knowledge into practice. Especially therapeutic measures have to be known inside out. Therefore, the RWTH Aachen has produced learning videos which can be accessed by it’s students at any time. And the best thing about this is: The videos have been produced during classes by the students themelves. Students teaching students – Training of physiotherapists - Read more
[17/09/2014] Prof. Frank Mayer from the University of Potsdam talks about nonspecific back pain and deficits of the neuromuscular system in the trunk that are a possible cause. Jürgen Fischer and Dr. Peter Stehle from the German Federal Institute of Sports Science explain the backgrounds of the project “Back Pain”.Back pain - does relief come from sport medicine? - Read more
[27/08/2014] Chronic wounds, allergies and recurrent infections of the skin are a continuous burden for patients. Physical plasma is able to bring relief and is an alternative to already established therapies.Physical plasma – the future of skin therapy? - Read more
