The optimal middle course

Dear Sir or Madam,

Professional sport means being in a constant balance between stress and regeneration. Students at Jacobs University have tested with soccer club SV Werder Bremen how this balance can be optimised by analysing and visualising training data. Find out in our News how the collaboration went from a sporting and technical point of view and how the results can be used further for sport.

Enjoy reading!

Robots in the operating theatre are no longer a rarity in certain medical fields - they support and relieve doctors and sometimes they can make operations more efficient and easier with artificial intelligence (AI). However, they are rarely found in the operating theatre during cardiological interventions.

NIH scientists develop faster COVID-19 test

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests, Research & Technology

Scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have developed a new sample preparation method to detect SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The method bypasses extraction of the virus' genetic RNA material, simplifying sample purification and potentially reducing test time and cost.
