Neither liquid nor solid

While glass is a truly ubiquitous material that we use on a daily basis, it also represents a major scientific conundrum. Contrary to what one might expect, the true nature…

A new method for the functionalization of graphene

INRS professor Federico Rosei collaborated with an international research team to modify the properties of graphene for its use in electronics. An international research team involving Professor Federico Rosei of…

Researchers identify the physical mechanism that can kill bacteria with gold nanoparticles

The research, involving URV researcher Vladimir Baulin, opens the door to the development of new bactericide materials as an alternative to antibiotics. Finding alternatives to antibiotics is one of the…

It’s all about the right balance

Collaborative work of research groups at the University of Würzburg and the TU Dresden has provided important new insights for cancer research. During cell division specific target proteins have to…

How deadly parasites ‘glide’ into human cells

Gliding movements to invade host cells. In biological terms, gliding refers to the type of movement during which a cell moves along a surface without changing its shape. This form…

What time is it on your biological clock?

Interdisciplinary research team of Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Leibniz Institute on Aging – Fritz Lipmann Institute and Jena University Hospital receives 4.5 million euros in funding from the Carl…

What lies between grey and white in the brain

Traditionally, neuroscience regards the brain as being made up of two basic tissue types. Until very recently, not much was known about the interface between the white and grey matter…

Efficient pollen identification

Interdisciplinary team of researchers combines image-based particle analysis with artificial intelligence. From pollen forecasting, honey analysis and climate-related changes in plant-pollinator interactions, analysing pollen plays an important role in many…

Hunger encourages risk-taking

Meta-analysis by research team from the universities of Bielefeld and Jena shows that in animals, difficult living conditions increase risk-taking behaviour in later life The lives of animals in the…

Solar-battery effect enables a new light-driven organic microswimmer to operate in the dark

An interdisciplinary team of scientists at the Max Planck Institutes for Intelligent Systems and Solid State Research has developed a biocompatible microswimmer made of carbon nitride, which they can propel…
