PLOS One Journal 01/2013
Why Are Old Stem Cell Lines Often Researched?
The study “ Power Laws and the Use of Embryonic Stem Cell Lines” conducted by AICES Professor Andreas Schuppert has been published on January 2, 2013 by the journal PLOS One. The scientists’ hypothesis was that despite of the existence of a steadily increasing number of human embryonic stem cell lines, there is a preferential use for only a few lines.

Computational Engineering Science - A new engineering section
This issue of the "RWTH Themen" explores a new, quickly developing, field of research: Computational Engineering Science. Modern computational techniques are an invaluable component of every engineer's toolset and every scientist's laboratory. Yet, computational engineering and science are still much younger than engineering and science based on analytical or experimental methods alone, and can still be considered emerging disciplines.
RWTH insight 03/2007
RWTH is excellent!
On the 23rd of June 2005, the German federal and state governments agreed on an initiative to promote top-level research at German universities with the longterm goal to strengthen science and research in Germany in a sustainable manner. The total funding budget of the Excellence Initiative sums up to 1.9 billion Euros for a period of 5 years between 2006 and 2011, and accordingly 2007 and 2012, as there were two rounds of proposals.
