Abstract
The roots of today`s dynamics and topology of networks goes back to the seminal work of Christiaan Huygens (1665) and Leonhard Euler (1735), respectively. Huygens recognized synchronization phenomena in a system of mechanically coupled pendulum clocks. His experiments and mathematical descriptions laid the foundation for the research field of nonlinear dynamics. Leonhard Euler paved the way to graph theory by analyzing the topological background of the “Köngisberg walk”.
Since the 1980s of the last century new ways have been found of quantifying the topological and modeling of large systems of interacting agents and striking commonalities have been observed in the organizational properties of a broad arrays of real-life networks, including (but not limited) to air transportation networks, virus spreading, microchips, the internet and nervous systems. The so-called small-worlds network attracted considerable interest, because many biological and technical systems can be described within this framework. In general, network topology plays an important role in constraining systems dynamics and reciprocally system dynamics can often drive the evolution or development of network topology. I will present in a qualitative way a few examples of dynamical networks, such as sensor swarms, the functional and structural connectivity of nervous systems, and the stabilization of energy networks. The talk concludes by presenting the role of dynamical networks in the CRC1461: Neurotronics.

KiNSIS Colloquium: Network Dynamics and Dynamical Networks (Philipp Hövel, University College Cork)

Networks are everywhere. From the social networks both online and offline, distant and close connections to interactions and wiring in the brain, nearly any problem can be transferred to a network science embedding. The key idea is to define appropriate nodes and links that form the network. In addition, many processes can be modeled by (nonlinear) dynamical systems to investigate questions of stability, switching, fixed points, periodic orbits etc. Combining networks with dynamics provides powerful synergies to describe complex systems that consist of many interacting units. Further extensions are possible as well, if the local node dynamics have an impact on the structure of the underlying network. In my presentation, I will summarize core aspects of dynamics on and of networks along the lines of selected examples and will demonstrate how the universal and combined power of network science and nonlinear dynamics can be unleashed.

KiNSIS LogoDas Forschungsinformationssystem (FIS) ist ein Datenbanksystem, in dem Informationen über die vielfältigen Forschungsleistungen zusammengeführt werden können, die an der CAU erbracht werden. Von Publikationen über Tagungsteilnahmen und Gutachtertätigkeiten bis hin zu Preisen können die verschiedensten Forschungstätigkeiten dokumentiert, verknüpft und für die Nutzung außerhalb des FIS auch wieder exportiert werden. Auch Publikationslisten auf Uni-Webseiten lassen sich mit Hilfe der im FIS erfassten Angaben bequem automatisch erstellen. Jede*r Wissenschaftler*in der CAU kann das FIS für die Dokumentation ihrer/seine Forschung nutzen. Aus der Perspektive einer Organisationseinheit, wie einem Schwerpunkt, können die Informationen im FIS ebenfalls betrachtet werden. So lassen sich z.B. für Anträge, Berichtspflichten etc. entsprechende Übersichten über die verschiedenen Facetten der dort geleisteten Forschung und ihrer Zusammenhänge (Großgeräte, Kooperationspartner) zusammenstellen.

KiNSIS Colloquium: Research Training Group 2154 "Materials for Brain", Prof. Dr. Rainer Adelung

Apr 07, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

Abstract:

The motivation for the Research Training Group “Materials for Brain” is research on possible treatments of patients with chronic brain diseases. Currently this treatment is still mainly based on systemic drug administration, but sufficiently large drug concentrations in the brain are often accompanied by side effects affecting other organs in the body. Neural implants, which allow localized and individualized therapy, are an alternative solution if they can satisfy the following requirements: they must be compact, biocompatible, resilient and highly flexible. Defined, nano-scale, therapeutically active coatings as well as suitability of the implants for diagnostics with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are only some aspects and demands of possible novel therapies. In order to reach these goals, micro-structured, functional materials based on thin film technology are investigated to elucidate the possibilities of innovative local treatment of epilepsy, brain tumors and vascular diseases. Material-controlled drug release and implant interactions with cells are initially studied in vitro and now in vivo be studied using cell cultures. Such research demands a high level of interdisciplinary and international collaborative research, besides an introduction into the research the talk will introduce measures and aspects of the doctoral student trainings as well.

KiNSIS Colloquium: “Nanoparticles for vaccination”, Prof. Dr. Regina Scherließ, Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics

May 05, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

Logo KiNSISVaccines are perceived as our most promising exit strategy to the current SARS-CoV2 pandemic. But how do vaccines actually work? And which principles can be utilised for vaccination?
This talk will give a short introduction into common vaccination strategies and introduce a favourable alternative to parenteral vaccines – not only for those who fear needles and syringes. Mucosal vaccination creates an immune response which is tailored to fight an infection being mediated via the respiratory mucosa – such as SARS-CoV2. With this, it might be a strategy to actually prevent infection and to stop virus transmission and spreading.
Nanoparticles play an important role in both, mucosal vaccination strategies and the vaccine approaches we currently use to fight SARS-CoV2. An insight into the technology of mRNA-based vaccines containing lipid nanoparticles is given and further strategies for mucosal vaccination are explored. Own research on the development and preparation of nanoparticulate drug carriers for immune actives show size-dependent cellular uptake and a balanced cellular and humoral immune response. Current projects on nasal and pulmonary delivery of nanoparticle-containing formulations match the strategies currently being explored in the context of second generation Covid19-vaccines.
