Clone Wars – FLI researcher is honored with prestigious Sofja Kovalevskaja Award

Why do cells and tissues age and what are the genetic and molecular causes for aging? These are the central research questions that Italian junior scientist Dr. Francesco Neri, PhD, is trying to answer. Currently starting his own research group at Leibniz Institute on Aging (FLI) in Jena, Germany, Neri will be awarded the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in November 2016 – one of the most highly endowed research awards in Germany.

In recent times, our understanding of aging has deeply changed. Stem cells, that are the basis for organ regeneration throughout life, start to mutate in...

Sponges and shells get settled at ZIK B CUBE

ZIK B CUBE – a research center for molecular bioengineering at TU Dresden – is extending its research scope and welcomes a new junior research group led by Dr. Igor Zlotnikov. With 4.6 million Euro of financial support for 5 years from the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF, Initiative „Unternehmen Region – Zentren für Innovationskompetenz) Zlotnikov gets the opportunity to build up his team, which will study the role of internal interfaces in biological tissues formation and function.

Zlotnikov started his activities on 1 July and uses marine shells, such as the pen shell Pinna nobilis, which is one of the biggest shells worldwide, as a...

What breath reveals: detecting diseases with infrared sensors / prestigious prize for chemists

'Please blow into this bag': what is known to drivers from traffic controls could increasingly complement blood checks in medical examinations. Scientists around Professor Boris Mizaikoff, Director of the Institute of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (IABC) at Ulm University, developed a breath gas analysis method ('μbreath') which allows them to diagnose various diseases in humans – in some cases before they even break out. The team recently received an award by the British Royal Society of Chemistry for their application-oriented infrared sensors.

'The body's metabolism is reflected in the compounds present in the exhaled breath. On the basis of minuscule molecules, which are chemically altered or...

George Fytas receives ERC Advanced Grant for phononics project

The external member of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P), Prof. Dr. George Fytas, has been granted over two million euros by the European Research Council (ERC) for retrieving a dispersion relation for quantized sound waves, so-called phonons, in soft structures.

Soft materials that are periodic on the submicrometer length scale act as both hypersonic phononic and visible light photonic crystals. This means: they...

Lung Research - EU Horizon 2020 funding to predict nanotoxicity

Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have received more than one million euros in the framework of the European Horizon 2020 Initiative. Dr. Tobias Stöger and Dr. Otmar Schmid from the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease and the Comprehensive Pneumology Center (CPC) will be using the funds to develop new tests to assess risks posed by nanomaterials in the airways. This could contribute to reducing the need for complex toxicity tests.

Nanoparticles are extremely small particles that can penetrate into remote parts of the body. While researchers are investigating various strategies for...
