Welcome to IAM-MMS

The Institute for Applied Materials - Microstructure Modelling and Simulation (IAM-MMS) is engaged in research, teaching and transfer of knowledge about mechanical and micro-structural properties of materials and component evaluation. We deal with fundamental as well as application-oriented questions.

AI Student Project in Medical Image Analysis

In the course of the Hector Seminar, two students are working on a research project at the IAM-MMS this school year 22/23, which originates from the cooperation with Heidelberg University Hospital. In order to automatically determine the contrast bolus arrival in dynamic MRI images of the lung, a LSTM network was trained and successfully tested. With their results, the two students are also participating in the osKarl competition of the EFFEKTE science festival.

Exciting insights at Girls' Day

Girls can explore STEM professions and courses of study at the Germany-wide Girls' Day. We are happy to be part of it and offer two exciting opportunities to get to know the world of materials science at the MMS. Our first offer is a captivating lecture highlighting the diverse fields of activity. In our second offering, we invite you to join us for an interactive workshop. Don't miss this opportunity to discover your passion and potential in the STEM field!
