Taster lectures on a wide variety of biology topics, games and experiments at hands-on stations, and tours of the CellNanOs research building! Just like last year, pupils had a lot of fun at our Night of Biology. Microscoping, loading a protein gel, examining fruit flies, and marveling at the university's most expensive microscope from below - there was all this and much more to experience during Biology Night!

Excursion to the Gülper Lake and the Havelland Luch

Once again this year, Osnabrück biology students explored the wildlife at 'Gülper See' (Gülpe Lake). The starting point for all daily observation tours was the Ecological Station of the University of Potsdam in Gülpe.

Spiny mice possess an extraordinary ability for mammals: they can repair injured tissue without forming scars. A joint study by researchers led by Prof. Kerstin Bartscherer (AG Animal Physiology) and Prof. Ashley Seifert (University of Kentucky) provides new insights into the molecular basis of this phenomenon - which could one day prove valuable for the treatment of human diseases.

Masters symposium

Scientific research is one thing, showing the research results to a larger audience in an interesting and understandable way is another. In the master symposium, our master students practice designing a scientific poster and presenting it in an internal poster session. How do I design such a poster and what is important in the talk? And which of our master students has created the best poster?

Science Slam

Anyone who has ever attended a science slam event knows what it's all about: presenting scientific research and content to a broad and non-specialist audience in a way that everyone can understand and with a touch of humor. Previously, PhD students from the Osnabrück University had the opportunity to try their best: At an event organized by PhD InterConnect, Shiksha Ajmera, a PhD student in the Department of Ecology, did just that and won over the audience with her talk.

Digital field trip

The big excursion to Costa Rica has been a well-established and popular event in our department for many years. Every two years, the excursion participants travel with our botany professor Klaus Mummenhoff to the South American country, which, despite its manageable size, boasts an incredible diversity of ecological life zones. Now apl. Prof. Mummenhoff, Felix Przesdzink and Sebastian Holt have tried to make this unique excursion experience digitally accessible and traveled to Costa Rica with elaborate film equipment. Find here the pictures and the report of the adventure!
