gely in the educational and social sciences. The Research Unit "Mechanisms of Elite Education in the German Education System" now plans to analyse the processes of social construction and creation of excellence in key educational institutions and at different educational sites. In a very broad approach the researchers want to devote their attention to the whole range of educational institutions, from nursery school to the university. Their aim is to work out empirically the importance of distinction and coherence formation both for those receiving the education as well as for the education providers.

The so-called "Von Willebrand factor" is a key protein in blood clotting in the human body. Any disturbance of its functioning results in blood clotting disorders. The Research Unit "Shear Flow Regulation of Haemostasis Bridging the Gap Between Nanomechanics and Clinical Presentation" aims to gain a deeper understanding of the structure and function of the Von Willebrand factor. To this end the group is basing their approach on cooperation between medical professionals and biophysicists, nanoscientists and physiologists working in experimental and theoretical areas. Such a combined effort should allow the regulation processes to be explained in detail. In the long-term this could also have benefits for the diagnosis and treatment of congenital blood clotting disorders, acute thromboses or strokes.

"From Catchments as Organised Systems to Models Based on Dynamic Functional Units", or CAOS for short, is the name a new German-Luxembourgian Research Unit, which is tackling fundamental questions of the water supply in collaboration with geoscientists, soil scientists, hydrologists and atmosphere researchers. To achieve this they want to develop new hydrological models and test out appr
