Glittering imaging tools

Dear Sir or Madam,

No jewelry, but medical tools – nanodiamonds could improve imaging in the future. Researchers at the Ruhr-University Bochum are investigating various marking options to trace the special nanoparticles in the body. Nanodiamonds could be used in the future for therapeutic and diagnostic imaging procedures.

Dr Patrick Happel explains more about this in our current interview.

Have a good start into the New Year,

They are not just "a girl's best friend"1, but are also important helpers in medicine: diamonds. Yet the latter are so tiny that they are not visible to the naked eye. Dr. Patrick Happel at the Ruhr University Bochum in Germany studies so-called nanodiamonds. Someday soon, they are supposed to help in significantly improving medical imaging.

From cicada to implant – bionic-inspired materials research


Photo: Preview of the current video
Infection protection has many facets. Metals with antibacterial effects are one of them for some years now. Nanostructured surfaces that kill bacteria are a younger development. Prof. Manfred Köller from the German university hospital Berufsgenossenschaftliches Universitätsklinikum Bergmannsheil in Bochum explains in our video how nanopillars destroy bacteria. We also ask Prof. Alfred Ludwig from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum how theses pillars are grown on titanium tiles in his lab and what cicada wings have to do with this.

Bionics - learning from nature


Photo: Water dripping off of a lotus leaf
Bionics are committed to rebuild natural phenomena with technical means and to use them as basis for new technologies. Already Leonardo da Vinci looked to the flight of birds for inspiration which he could use to build his flying machines. Today's medical technology takes nature as a model as well to develop new prosthetics that are based on the movements of animals or to find impulses for the development of surgical instruments.
