Protein design – A construction kit full of opportunities

It was a very successful application for Birte Höcker. The researcher from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology has now received an ERC Consolidator Grant and prize money of nearly 2 Million Euros from the European Research Council (ERC). She and her team can now follow up on new ideas about protein design, their scientific discipline.

Höcker, a biochemist, studies the evolution of proteins and uses her knowledge to construct new ones. She could already show that the diversity of proteins...

Max Planck scientists receive 3 Million Euro award

Dr. Patrick Müller and Dr. Frank Chan, research group leaders at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory in Tübingen, Germany, have been awarded prestigious ERC Starting Grants. Each scientist will receive 1.5 Million Euros over a period of five years for their excellent research. The ERC Starting Grants, awarded by the European Research Council (ERC), support the scientific independence of top researchers across Europe at an early stage of their career.

The Friedrich Miescher Laboratory (FML) is the smallest research institute on the Max Planck Campus in Tübingen, Germany. Two of its research group leaders,...

Helmholtz supports three research projects along the road to application

The Helmholtz Association is keen on developing pioneering technologies and making them attractive for industry. It is therefore channelling more than €20 million from its Initiative and Networking Fund into helping scientists quickly move their projects from research to application. Since its launch in 2011, the Validation Fund has financed a total of 21 projects.

Independent assessors have recently recommended to financially supporting three more projects: a continuous production process for more cost efficient...

European Union promotes research to prevent complication after transplantation of stem cells

Two Berlin research teams led by Marie-Laure Yaspo at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics and Hans Lehrach at Alacris Theranostics GmbH in Berlin are partners in the TREGeneration consortium. Their goal is to develop new strategies for the treatment of Graft versus Host Disease, a serious complication following bone marrow transplantation. A total of 6 million euros was awarded to the consortium to perform a 5-year research project comprising a set of five parallel clinical trials.

Transplantation of stem cells can save the life of patients suffering from leukemia or other blood diseases. Between 30 and 50% of patients undergoing stem...

Im Focus: Experiment Provides the Best Look Yet at 'Warm Dense Matter' at Cores of Giant Planets

In an experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, scientists precisely measured the temperature and structure of aluminum as...

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

Im Focus: 3-D satellite, GPS earthquake maps isolate impacts in real time

Method produced by UI researcher could improve reaction time to deadly, expensive quakes

When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.

Im Focus: Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
