Algorithms for identifying new "cancer genes"

14-Feb-2020

It is estimated that the number of cancer cases worldwide will double by 2040. This makes the search for genes that cause cancer even more important. A team of researchers from the University of Bern and Inselspital, University Hospital Bern, has now developed algorithms that massively simplify ...

A new pathway to "reprogram" killer cells

21-Nov-2019

Killer cells of the immune system detect and kill infected cells or cancer cells. Researchers at the Institute of Pathology at the University of Bern have now discovered that the mechanism by which certain immune cells kill their target cells can also be used to control the killer cells ...

Breakthrough in malaria research

18-Nov-2019

An international scientific consortium led by the cell biologists Volker Heussler from the University of Bern and Oliver Billker from the Umeå University in Sweden has for the first time systematically investigated the genome of the malaria parasite Plasmodium throughout its life cycle in a ...

Special cells contribute to regenerate the heart in Zebrafish

24-Oct-2019

It is already known that zebrafish can flexibly regenerate their hearts after injury. An international research group led by Prof. Nadia Mercader of the University of Bern now shows that certain heart muscle cells play a central role in this process. The insights gained could be used to initiate ...

Cancer control: Structure of important transport protein solved

Discovery of promising binding site

21-Jun-2019

For the first time, Bernese researchers have been able to solve the structure of a transport protein and thus to describe the functional mechanism that plays a significant role in the survival of cancer cells. This is an important step towards developing effective inhibitors and fight tumor ...

Learning new vocabulary during deep sleep

04-Feb-2019

Sleeping time is sometimes considered unproductive time. This raises the question whether the time spent asleep could be used more productively – e.g. for learning a new language? To date sleep research focused on the stabilization and strengthening (consolidation) of memories that had been ...

Cellular metabolism as the key to treating allergic dermatitis?

30-Jan-2019

The function of so-called “TH9” cells in humans remains elusive. These interleukin-9 (IL-9)-producing T helper (TH) cells play an important role in inflammatory reactions and tumor immunity in animal models. In order to better understand the role of TH9 cells in humans, Prof. Dr. Christoph ...

Turbocharger for the cell machinery

14-Jan-2019

The classic molecular-biological narrative has a simple form: Gene-RNA-protein. This is what we learned in school: DNA is transcribed into RNA. In the protein factories (the so-called ribosomes), the RNA serves as a kind of punch card - the proteins are assembled by the machinery exactly ...

How resistant cancer cells can be fought

31-Jul-2018

An international research team under the co-direction of the University of Bern and the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) has discovered various mechanisms of resistance to cancer therapy. The findings help researchers to understand the self-repair of cancer cells after a therapy and thus help ...

A single control center for sleep and wake in the brain

Breakthrough for sleep medicine

13-Jun-2018

Until now, it was thought that multiple brain areas were needed to control sleep and wakefulness. Neuroscientists from Bern have now identified one single control center for the sleep-wake cycle in the brain. The findings are of great importance for finding new sleep therapies. Every night we ...
