Do we separate art from the artist?

Hannah Kaube (PhD student)
Following a plethora of accusations against prominent artists in recent years, this age-old question has newly sparked public debate. How can neurocognitive psychology help us find empirical answers to a topic which has been considered in mainly theoretical terms until now? Hanna Kaube is a PhD student at Humboldt University of Berlin. She conducts her research in the Institute for Neurocognitive Psychology and will tell if we can separate art form the artist.

How to make atoms dance to our tune

Sabrina Patsch (PhD in Physics)
The second quantum revolution promises technologies that are supposedly safer, faster, and more precise than anything we use today. Their building blocks are tiny and obey the rules of quantum physics. Rules that contradict all intuition: objects are waves and particles; cats are dead and alive at the same time. But how to tame these objects and build sophisticated technologies from them? The basic idea is simple: if you want someone to dance to your tune, you have to play the right music!

New approaches in the treatment of cancer

When most people think of proteins, they probably think of food. But proteins are much more than that: they are tools of the human cell and responsible for all vital functions of our body. In complex diseases such as cancer, certain proteins are altered within the cell. Their analysis can help discover new treatments and diagnostics for personalized cancer medicine.
