“Our Technology for the Production of Antibodies is a kind of Turbocharger” – Interview with Prof. Katja Hanack

Katja Hanack is Professor of Immunotechnology at the University of Potsdam and is among the most renowned scientists worldwide in the field of research into antibodies. Thanks to her intensive research, she is now able to offer a comprehensive and innovative technology portfolio with which to produce antibodies quickly and effectively. With the aid of one of these technologies, it proved possible to reduce the period required for the production of monoclonal antibodies from twelve months to a mere three. The processes developed by her team thereby help establish new test systems and medicaments, not only in the battle against the Corona virus.

“The Next Generation of Protective Textiles”: Respiratory masks that kill off Corona viruses and are washable – Dr. Katja Uhlig

Respiratory masks could soon be experiencing a minor revolution: it is said that, in the foreseeable future, they will kill off viruses on their surfaces already and be washable at 40°C. It is on this precise aspect that Dr. Katja Uhlig and Dr. Sebastian Kersting of Fraunhofer IZI-BB and Dr. Erik Wischerhoff of Fraunhofer IAP are doing research in the Potsdam Science Park. But the combination of an antiviral surface and cleanability presents a complex challenge to the research work.

“If everything goes well, a drug against COVID-19 could be on the market in a few years based on our research.” — Interview with Dr Ruben R. Rosencrantz

In the Potsdam Science Park, institutes and companies are working on treatments and solutions to further contain the spread of coronavirus or to accelerate the cure. Dr Ruben R. Rosencrantz heads the “Life Science and Bioprocesses” research area and the “Biofunctionalised Materials and (Glyco)Biotechnology” department at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP. The research area is involved in four initiatives in the fight against COVID-19. The approaches and application opportunities are extremely promising.

“Such a soil moisture field laboratory as the one here in Potsdam has no equal anywhere in the world.” — Interview with Prof. Sascha Oswald

In the DFG (German Research Council) research group entitled “Cosmic Sense”, Prof. Sascha Oswald is working on methods to determine soil moisture based on neutron density. This forms the basis for all agriculture and forestry and plays an important role in climate research. In this conversation, we talk about the desire to set new impulses in environmental protection.

The Architect of a National Education Platform – Prof. Ulrike Lucke

For many years, Prof. Ulrike Lucke has been a sought-after expert in the field, is a member of the board and spokesperson for numerous committees, gives lectures and publishes scientific articles. Since the coronavirus pandemic, things have changed. Suddenly, a topic that she has been researching for more than 20 years, but which was previously treated as a marginal issue in politics and society, has come into the limelight: E-learning.

“It’s very fulfilling to have a career in physics.” – Interview with Prof. Safa Shoaee

Physicist Prof. Safa Shoaee is one of the world’s most renowned researchers in the field of organic solar cells. After studying in London and Queensland, she received the Sofja Kovalevskaja Prize in 2016 when she began her work at the University of Potsdam and has since been conducting research in the Potsdam Science Park. With Dieter Neher, professor of soft matter physics, she was able to produce the world’s most efficient 1 cm2 organic solar cells here. In this conversation, we talk about green technologies and the way to make a career in physics as a woman.

“We need world-class talent” – Interview with Dr Sven Sewitz, Head of Biodata Innovation at Eagle Genomics

Research and business in the field of biology face the immense challenge of analysing and evaluating huge amounts of data. The company Eagle Genomics has set out to make this complexity manageable with the help of network science and artificial intelligence. In 2021, the company will open its first German location in the Potsdam Science Park. A conversation with Dr Sven Sewitz, Head of Biodata Innovation at Eagle Genomics.

Why this new battery will revolutionise more than e-cars – leading researcher Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Markus Antonietti in an interview

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Markus Antonietti is Director of the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and the first German Chemist to have received the worldwide research prizes of the European Research Council (ERC) three times in his lifetime so far. The exceptional researcher received one of the highest European research prizes, the Synergy Grant, for a sustainable battery and, together with his team, prevailed against 440 international research groups. In the interview, he reveals why electric cars are not that important and what the true social vision behind his research is.

Nicolas Hartmann and vly: the reinvention of milk

Nicolas Hartmann and the vly team offer a milk derived from pea proteins. Thanks to a TV program, they became known throughout Germany. What few people know: In order to build up their start-up, they received valuable support from Potsdam Transfer at the University of Potsdam: their EXIST-Gründerstipendium. The story of a start-up with the ambition to make the world a better place.

New Potsdam-Golm Center to benefit those living and working here with Sabrina Schwandt

With institutes like the Fraunhofer and Max Planck Institutes on site as well as the University of Potsdam, the Potsdam Science Park is among future-oriented places with top-level research in the capital region. But what about the future of this growing hotspot for science and business itself? How could the area develop and what could it look like? We spoke to Sabrina Schwandt from dh | IMMOBILIEN, a real estate company that will soon build in the centre of the Potsdam Science Park.

A University School in Potsdam-Golm: A significant step toward education equality (about Prof. Dr. Nadine Spörer)

At the University of Potsdam, innovation and new ideas are not foreign words. So, it is only logical that at the Golm Campus the first Brandenburg University School is currently being designed in the “Innovative Hochschule Potsdam” (in English: innovative university Potsdam) project. But what is a university school? Why is Potsdam-Golm the right place? What could this school bring to the Berlin-Brandenburg region? We spoke with Prof. Dr. Nadine Spörer, Professor of Psychological Primary School Pedagogy at the University of Potsdam, to better understand the plans and thoughts behind a future university school. As the head of the “Innovative University of Applied Sciences Potsdam” project, she explained to us details of the planning as well as the motives for this new school.

Displays from the printer

About half of the displays used in smartphones today use OLEDs.
