"The understanding of quantum matter in and out of equilibrium is among the biggest challenges of modern physics. Despite decades of research fundamental questions, such as the preciseworkings behind rather ubiquitous materials such as high temperature superconductors are still unresolved. At the same time there is a new generation of experiments approaching which realises and probes quantum matte ...

Human social interaction depends on non-verbal unconscious behaviour as much as on verbal signals. Mimicry (unconscious copying of actions) is a good example of a social behaviour which is caused by and has consequences for our evaluation of others. However, studying mimicry with traditional methods is hard because of the trade-off between good experimental control and realistic social interacti ...

Kinetics for Drug Discovery (K4DD) (K4DD)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

There is mounting evidence that the often ignored kinetic aspects of the interaction between a drug and its target are highly relevant for clinical success. This ignorance may be one of the reasons for the high attrition rates in drug discovery, as it has been analyzed that many recently marketed drugs had indeed improved kinetic profiles. This hindsight knowledge needs to be converted into data-d ...
