Tiny “blinkers” reveal molecules inside cells
LMU physicists led by Ralf Jungmann introduce an entirely new approach to super-resolution microscopy: Tiny ‘blinkers’ enable simultaneous imaging of multiple biomolecules.
In everyday life, blinking lights can send signals – for example, that a car is going to turn. Now, researchers have e ... more
Defective immune cells in the brain cause Alzheimer’s disease
Mutations of the TREM2 gene can significantly increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Scientists from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich now shed light on the reasons why TREM2 is so important for brain health. They show th ... more
Imaging nerve-cell interactions
A new imaging technique developed by LMU researchers is garnering lots of attention. Based on a method for making tissues, organs and even whole organisms transparent, it promises to transform studies of the nervous system in particular.
A new bioimaging technology provides unprecedented in ... more
