Since 1971, students have been able to complete numerous applied degree programmes, have done so and have taken off into a successful future. On the occasion of the anniversary, we let our alumni have their say under the motto "50 years - 50 alumni". What are they doing today and how did they experience their student days? In this video we find out exactly that from Rebecca and Manuel. University President Josef von Helden also gives an outlook on the future of the HsH.

Dogs can discriminate between samples from SARS-CoV-2 infected humans and control samples

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.
