The German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie Paris VI (UPMC), Paris, France are now establishing the first international, structured PhD program in myology at the Experimental and Clinical Research Center (ECRC) in Berlin-Buch and at the UPMC in Paris. "The International Research Training Group for Myology" (MyoGrad) shall begin on April 1, 2010 for a funding period of four and one-half years.
The DFG shall fund 18 PhD students at the Graduate School with 4.5 million euros, and the UPMC and the self-help organization AFM (Association française contre les myopathies) shall fund an additional 15 PhD students. The spokesperson for the research training group in Berlin is Professor Simone Spuler, neurologist and myologist at the ECRC of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch and Charité - University Medical Center Berlin. In addition, she is head of the Muscle Research Unit at the ECRC. The spokespersons of MyoGrad in Paris are Professor Thomas Voit and Dr. Helge Amthor of the Institute of Myology of the Université Paris VI. Both are specialists for neuromuscular diseases in childhood.Therapy development and muscle stem cell research

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
