Help for stressed-out cells in a crisis

According to a team of plant researchers, mitochondria provide unexpected help for cells in a crisis by respiring away harmful substances. The current study produced by the Institute of Biology and Biotechnology of Plants (IBBP) at the University of Münster and the Institute of Crop Science and Resource Conservation (INRES) at the University of Bonn has been published in the journal Plant Cell.

Past stock prices mislead investors

Investors often decide how to invest based on past stock prices. In fact, however, future and past returns do not depend on each other. If investors are made aware of this error, they change their investment behavior. This is shown in a study by the team of economist Prof. Dr. Christine Laudenbach, member of the Cluster of Excellence ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy at the University of Bonn. The study was published in advance as an "ECONtribute Discussion Paper".

“Bonn is the proper place for Clausius to be memorialized”

University of Bonn physicist Rudolf Clausius (1822-1888), famous for postulating the second law of thermodynamics and introducing the concept of entropy—a vital theorem of the natural sciences—was born in January 200 years ago. Surprisingly little is known about the life of this extraordinarily talented scientist, comparable in stature to Helmholtz, despite his great achievements in the field of physics, and the fact that he remained fully active in research on up into his later years. The last installment of the lecture series entitled “The Motive Force of Heat” was devoted to shedding more light on his research work for the lay public in an experiential way.

Providing Information on Expertise

Looking for experts to interview? Who is helping with the research? What is new in science? The University of Bonn is a research university with a strong international focus. Its research and teaching cover the entire range of scientific disciplines, from Anthropology of the Americas to Zoology. That means expertise is available in (almost) all topic areas.

We can help you access a pool of around 6,500 experts in the areas of research, teaching, technology and administration. We help the media by providing contacts in the University that are appropriate for their needs.

We also provide advice to University members on how to contact the media, and help them if the media have already contacted them and they have questions. We help them, for example, with basic knowledge and tips for interviews and TV appearances.
