August News in Brief

A podcast about the mysterious dark matter of the universe with CP3-Origins researcher; CeMiSt to host a photo exhibition that takes you close to the microbial world; and two students who, in close collaboration with HYPERMAG, have developed methods for better scanning images. All this is in this month’s News in Brief here.


Photo exhibition about the microbial world opens at DTU with CeMiSt as organizer

Starting September 13, you can experience the photo exhibition “World in a Drop” at DTU Bioengineering; the DNRF center CeMiSt is the organizer. The exhibition, which takes you on a journey very close to the microbial world, has previously been on display at the Harvard Museum of Natural History. The authors of the exhibition are Ph.D. in microbiology and science photographer Scott Chimileski and Professor Robert Kolter, both from Harvard University. During his stay at CeMiSt this summer, Professor Kolter allowed the center to set up the exhibition, which will be opened by Professor Kolter himself on September 13 at DTU Bioengineering.

In a new podcast, Mads Toudal Frandsen, from the DNRF Center CP3-Origins, talks about the mysterious dark matter of the Universe

Mads Toudal Frandsen, associate professor at the DNRF Center CP3-Origins at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), talks about the enigmatic dark matter, which accounts for a major percentage of our universe, and which is also the reason why planets and galaxies exist. If you are curious about dark matter, listen to the podcast with Mads Frandsen in the latest episode of the DFF-sponsored (Independent Research Fund Denmark) podcast ‘Vov at Vide’ at videnskab.dk here (In Danish).


Two student projects contribute to better scan images in close collaboration with HYPERMAG

In close collaboration with the DNRF center HYPERMAG at DTU, among others, two students from DTU Electrical Engineering have been working on their own projects, which will contribute to more accurate images from MRI scans. Alajdin Rustemi has manufactured and designed an inductor for use in liver scans. The new thing about this inductor is that it makes it possible to see liver images from two sides, as opposed to current inductors currently in use, which only creates images from one side of the liver. Marios Masouridi has been working on a project that will result in better sensors, and he has developed a very small inductor that can be used to scan minor animal tissue samples.
