Diagnoses by dog noses – Dogs can sniff out patients with COVID-19
A research team led by the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover (TiHo), in cooperation with the Bundeswehr, the Hannover Medical School and the University Medical-Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf, has carried out a study with eight specialised sniffer dogs from the Bundeswehr to sniff out people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The dogs were able to distinguish between samples from infected (positive) and non-infected (negative) individuals with an average sensitivity of 83 percent and a specificity of 96 percent. Sensitivity refers to the detection of positive samples. The specificity designates the detection of negative control samples.

Many foreign students need a job to finance their studies in Germany. That’s why reliable information regarding job opportunities and legal regulations is essential. We answer the most important questions on how to combine work with studies if you’re a foreign student in Germany.
How does the European Union promote research and education in Hanover?
What is the best way to generate energy from the oceans? Which methods enable us to utilize quartz in a way that is not detrimental to our health? Which measures help us learn digitally and in the classroom? In Hanover, European subsidies promote the search for answers to such questions – interdisciplinary and internationally connected. We showcase three projects – at Leibniz University Hanover, Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine, and Ada-und-Theodor-Lessing-Volkshochschule Hannover.
Lake Chalco in climate change
The effects of climate change on tropical regions are still poorly understood. However, they are among the most populated areas in the world. Researchers at the Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics (LIAG) have now created both an age-depth model and a moisture distribution for the last 500,000 years from one of the oldest lakes in central Mexico, Lake Chalco. The results are clear: Central Mexico experienced recurrent dry periods related to the Earth's natural wobble.
