Scientists Wish To Print Cartilage Implants

Cartilage injuries are a growing worldwide health problem. In Denmark alone thousands of new cases among young people are registered every year. At present there are very few treatments, and they are in many cases insufficient – many patients experiences pain and discomfort on a day to day bases.

Zenith33 is the name of the students estimate on a future racing car. It has three wheels and runs on batteries that are supplemented by solar cells (the blue area) on the roof of the vehicle. The shape is designed as aerodynamically as possible, and the driver gets to lie down in the car. (Illustration: Team AU)

Students design car of the future

Aarhus University students are currently combining their academic expertise with creativity to build an extremely energy-efficient eco car. They have been invited to take part in the international Shell Eco-marathon in Rotterdam, where the aim is to go the furthest on the equivalent of just one litre of petrol.
