With the Bible Museum, another popular institution of the University of Münster is opening its doors again after extensive renovation and extension work. The ceremonial opening will take place on 13 December as part of the "Long Friday" - both Bible museums will be open from 19.30 to 22.00 on this evening.
The stereoisomers of a molecule can cause different effects in a biological system, which is important for the development of drugs. Chemists at Münster University have succeeded in developing a synthetic method that can produce different stereoisomers from identical starting materials. The study appeared in "Nature Catalysis".
Great success for the University of Münster: Together with Freie Universität Berlin, the Transregional Research Center "Late Accretion on Terrestrial Planets" will receive around nine million euros from the German Research Foundation for another four years. The spokesperson for the project is Prof. Dr. Thorsten Kleine from the Institute of Planetology at Münster University.
The senseBox project receives around one million euros granted from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the "Open Photonik Pro" initiative.

In order to miniaturize individual components of mobile phones or computers, magnetic waves are currently regarded as promising as an alternative to conventional data transmission, which functions by means of electric currents. Physicists at Münster University have developed an approach with which spin waves can be better used. The study was published in "Nature Communications".
Dr. Ottaviano Ruesch is one of seven international research talents who have been selected this year for one of the highest endowed science prizes in Germany - the "Sofja Kovalevskaja Prize". Yesterday (20th November) Ottaviano Ruesch and the other prizewinners accepted the award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Berlin.
The various archaeologies represented at the University of Münster - whether by Romans and Greeks, ancient Egypt or since Christianisation - have found a new home.

Two prize winners from one institute: the Islamic scholars Prof. Mouhanad Khorchide and Prof. Ahmad Milad Karimi of the University of Münster have now been honoured for their differentiated approach to the Islamic faith. While Mouhanad Khorchide received the "Toleranzring" of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Ahmad Milad Karimi received the "Deutscher Dialogpreis".
Many biologically active molecules, including synthetic drugs, contain a central, nitrogen-containing chemical structure with a three-dimensional shape. However, there are hardly any suitable methods to produce them, which also makes it difficult to discover new medicinal compounds. A team of researchers at Münster University have now published a new method of enabling this reaction.
The trophy awarded to Spyros Louis, the first marathon winner of the modern-day Olympic Games in 1896, has returned to its home country.
