RTG 1913: Cultural and Technological Significance of Historic Buildings

The research programme of the Research Training Group "Cultural and Technological Significance of Historic Buildings" is concerned with the overlap between art, technology and society. The researchers in Cottbus intend to study building structures, their creation and their evolution from ancient times to the 20th century in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. In this context, historical buildings are understood as elements of cultural value systems and testimonies to technological and artistic achievement. Specifically, the RTG is concerned with such different aspects as the genealogy of different building cultures, the large construction site as a cultural-historical phenomenon, and the instruments of building.

Coordinating University:
Brandenburgische Technische Universität Cottbus-Senftenberg

RTG 2046: Parasite Infections: From Experimental Models To Natural Systems

Ausgangspunkt des Graduiertenkollegs ist die weltweite Verbreitung von Parasiteninfektionen bei Mensch und Tier und deren Zunahme durch Medikamentenresistenzen und infolge der globalen Erderwärmung und steigender Fernreiseaktivitäten. Es soll daher innovative und topaktuelle parasitologische Themen mit einem integrierten Lehrprogramm verbinden. In einem interdisziplinären Ansatz sollen Graduierte in molekularen Ansätzen, über zelluläre Interaktionen, bis hin zu organismischen Studien anhand von Parasiteninfektionen in Modellorganismen, in Wildtierpopulationen und des Menschen ausgebildet werden. Die Projekte spiegeln die attraktive Diversität des Faches wieder, fokussieren jedoch auf 4 Parasitengruppen (Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Giardia und Helminthen) um Kohärenz zu erzeugen.

Coordinating University:

RTG 2130: Minor Cosmopolitanisms

Western research in post-colonialism in the cultural and scientific disciplines has been concerned primarily with English-language print media created often in institutions in North America, Great Britain and Australia. The new Research Training Group "Minor Cosmopolitanisms" seeks to extend this research to include previously neglected areas of post-colonial practice, and investigate more than just print media. Instead, it will research how "minor cosmopolitanisms", new forms of cosmpolitanism that go beyond a eurocentric heritage, are negotiated in literature, other media and in everyday practice. The doctoral researchers will not only work in Potsdam but also move around a closely knit network of eight partner institutions in the USA, Canada, South Africa, India and Australia.

RTG 2248: Global Intellectual History - Transfers, Circulation of Ideas, Historical Actors (18th - 20th Century)

The Research Training Group entitled “Global Intellectual History - Transfers, Circulation of Ideas, Historical Actors (18th-20th Century)” will investigate intellectual reactions to processes of entanglement, the emergence of cross-boundary aspirations and the universalisation of ideas, as well as counter-movements. The role of non-Western actors in this context will especially be considered. The RTG also seeks to contribute to a discussion of the methods of global intellectual history, a more recent approach to global history.

Coordinating University:

RTG 2434: Facets of Complexity

In mathematics and computer science, complexity occurs in many forms: as combinatorial complexity, or the number of mathematical structures; as descriptive complexity, or the ability to code or visually represent a structure concisely; and as algorithmic complexity, which relates to runtime and memory requirements. The Research Training Group ‘Facets of Complexity’ intends to use the cross-connections between these three approaches, traditionally treated independently, to gain important new insights, which are equally relevant to mathematics and theoretical computer science.

Coordinating University:
FU Berlin

Spokesperson:
Prof. Dr. Günter Rote

Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Department of Computer Sciences

Duration: 4/18 - 3/2021

 

 

RTG 2424: Computational Methods for Oncology: Towards Personalized Therapies in Cancer

Computer-aided methods are becoming increasingly important in cancer research since ever larger data sets need to be converted into clinical knowledge. The RTG “Computational Methods for Oncology: Towards Personalized Therapies in Cancer” aims to derive individualised therapies from molecular patterns with computer-aided processes. The collaboration will work at the interface between bioinformatics, molecular biology and clinical oncology.

Coordinating University:
Charité Berlin - FU Berlin and HU Berlin

Spokesperson:
Prof. Dr. Nils Blüthgen

Participating Departments of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin:

IRTG 2445: Temporalities of Future in Latin America: Dynamics of Aspiration and Anticipation

The IRTG “Temporalities of Future in Latin America: Dynamics of Aspiration and Anticipation” aims to research social practices that are designed to change social conditions. The researchers will focus on individual actors whose actions produce new “temporalities of future”. The topic of investigation will be visions for the future in colonial, post-colonial and modern-day Latin America.

Coordinating University:
FU Berlin

RTG 2473: Bioactive Peptides - Innovative Aspects of Synthesis and Biosynthesis

Peptides are organic chemical compounds that consist of a chain of two or more amino acids. They are produced and used in many areas, from biochemistry and molecular biology, cell biology and biomedicine to the materials sciences. The RTG “Bioactive Peptides – Innovative Aspects of Synthesis and Biosynthesis” aims to develop new strategies for peptide and protein synthesis and also biosynthesis and bioengineering. In addition, researchers will examine the structure, stability and bioactivity of peptides.
