Generation of human brain organoids with the ability to learn

Bioengineered Neuronal Organoids recapitulate important morphological features of the human brain

01-Sep-2020

The brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body. Complexity of the brain is the result of highly and dynamically interconnected neurons as well as supporting glia. Lifelong changes in neuronal interconnectivity are key for memory and learning. Disturbances in neuronal ...

Are antivitamins the new antibiotics?

Research team develops drug approach against bacterial infections

27-Aug-2020

Antibiotics are among the most important discoveries of modern medicine and have saved millions of lives since the discovery of penicillin almost 100 years ago. Many diseases caused by bacterial infections - such as pneumonia, meningitis or septicaemia - are successfully treated with antibiotics. ...

A chemical tailor-made suit for Alzheimer’s drugs

Research team develops new inhibitors for enzymes

21-Jul-2020

With over 1.2 million people affected in Germany alone and over 50 million people worldwide, Alzheimer's disease, also referred to simply as Alzheimer's, is one of the greatest medical and social challenges of our time. Due to pathological changes in the brain, patients become increasingly ...

A pigment from ancient Egypt to modern microscopy

Research team produces new nanosheets for near infrared imaging

25-Mar-2020

Egyptian blue is one of the oldest manmade colour pigments. It adorns, for instance, the crown of the world famous bust of Nefertiti. But the pigment can do even more. An international research team led by Dr Sebastian Kruss from the Institute of Physical Chemistry at the University of Göttingen ...

Instant messaging in proteins discovered

Researchers unravel fundamental communication processes in proteins

20-Sep-2019

Proteins are essential for every living cell and responsible for many fundamental processes. In particular, they are required as bio-catalysts in metabolism and for signalling inside the cell and between cells. Many diseases come about as a result of failures in this communication, and the ...

Graphene layer enables advance in super-resolution microscopy

Eesearchers develop a new method allowing ten-fold improvement in optical resolution

05-Sep-2019

Researchers at the University of Göttingen have developed a new method that takes advantage of the unusual properties of graphene to electromagnetically interact with fluorescing (light-emitting) molecules. This method allows scientists to optically measure extremely small distances, in the order ...

How the cell protects itself

Researchers discover the mechanism that prevents damage caused by shortened proteins

14-Jun-2019

The cell contains transcripts of the genetic material, which migrate from the cell nucleus to another part of the cell. This movement protects the genetic transcripts from the recruitment of “spliceosomes”. If this protection does not happen, the entire cell is in danger: meaning that cancer and ...

Parkinson’s researchers test a new approach against motor disorders

01-Mar-2019

Scientists of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) have been able to alleviate motor disorders in mice that resemble those seen in Parkinson’s patients. The rodents were treated with a substance that affects the neurons and ...

Researchers track down new biocatalysts

Microbiologists develop new phytase screening method

07-Feb-2019

Phosphate is a key element in many processes in the body and essential for global food production. Researchers at the University of Göttingen have now developed a method to detect new enzymes from the environment that can release phosphate. This opens up new possibilities for the development and ...
