They are the best young German female mathematicians: At the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad 2024 (EGMO) in Tskaltubo (Georgia), the German team won one gold and two silver medals. A total of 212 young people from 54 countries took part in the top international tournament for mathematically talented school girls. As every year, the German team was supported by the HCM and assisted on site by female PhD students from Bonn.

Navigation software supports kidney research

Many kidney diseases are manifested by protein in the urine. However, until now it was not possible to determine whether the protein excretion is caused by only a few, but severely damaged, or by many moderately damaged of the millions of small kidney filters, known as glomeruli. Researchers at the University Hospital Bonn, in cooperation with mathematicians from the University of Bonn, have developed a new computer method to clarify this question experimentally. The results of their work have now been published as an article in press in the leading kidney research journal "Kidney International".
