Professor from the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern involved in construction of the Mars helicopter

When the Mars helicopter "Ingenuity" successfully took off for the first time at the beginning of last week, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Achim Trautmann from University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern was particularly happy about this historic moment. He played a key role in the development of a decisive component - one of the sensors used to stabilise the flight of the research drone.

Trautmann has already studied microsystems technology at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern campus in Zweibrücken, where he gained the necessary know-how to construct a inertial sensor, which helps the drone to remain in the air on its own and only change its position when it is controlled. This is possible through the technology of microsystems engineering.

Role of the gut in diagnosis and therapy of diseases

The significance of the gut is becoming increasingly important in the field of preventive health care.  According to the research of Prof. Dr. med. Karl-Herbert Schäfer from the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern, the gut also deserves much more attention in the field of diagnostics and therapy of diseases not directly related to the gut, as he now explains in an article in the renowned international scientific journal "Nature Reviews Gastroenterology and Hepatology" together with other scientists from the fields.

Prof. Dr. med. Karl-Herbert Schäfer from University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern has been researching the role of the gut in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's and its importance especially for the early diagnosis of these diseases at the Zweibrücken Faculty for many years. Now, together with colleagues from the Universities of Heidelberg and Bonn, as well as the Technical University of Munich, he has scoured countless scientific studies for evidence that proves the enormous role of the gut in the development and treatment of various diseases.

AI in fight against Corona

Corona research project started at the Zweibrücken Campus of University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern

As a university of applied sciences, not only excellent, practice-oriented teaching is a trademark of the University of Applied Sciences (HS) Kaiserslautern, but of course also diverse activities and projects in research, which are primarily oriented towards current, application-oriented issues. The Department of Computer Science and Microsystems Engineering at University of Applied Sciences campus Zweibrücken is known for its research strength and has already earned a first-class reputation for this on a national and international level. The project "Influence of formyl peptide receptors on coronavirus infections", which was funded by the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Science with around 185,000 euros and started today under the direction of Prof. Dr. Bernd Bufe, will certainly be able to further strengthen this reputation.
