    Bei Schädel-Hirn-Verletzten finden sich häufig Gefäßverschlüsse (Pfeil, oben), die die Versorgung des Gehirns beeinträchtigen und Hirnschäden verschlimmern können. Im Hirngewebe von gesunden Menschen sind die Gefäße normalerweise frei von Ablage

    When the brain is injured in an accident, the damage continues to spread in the following days. Blood clots are obviously to blame for this as a research team of the University of Würzburg has found.

    Über einen Nanometer groß ist das Molekül, das Würzburger Chemiker erstmals synthetisiert haben. Seine Tendenz, Elektronen aufzunehmen, macht es so interessant. (Grafik: Sabine Seifert)

    In autumn 2015 the Research Training School on molecular biradicals took up its work at the University of Würzburg. Currently the cooperation between chemists and physicists led to a first result: a publication on a new molecule, which is of interest for organic electronics.

    Mittels Photoelektronenspektroskopie gewonnene Energiespektren (a) und Winkelverteilungen der Elektronen(b-d) geben erstmals Einblick in die Kopplung zwischen elektronischen Zuständen und Schwingungen (e) von Molekülen. (Grafik: Martin Graus)

    For the first time, physicists of the University of Würzburg have mapped details of a molecule's electron shell. These details enable them to learn more about molecule properties and possibly contribute to developing new materials.

    Schematische Darstellung von ß-Arrestin2. An den farblich gekennzeichneten Positionen bauten die Forscher Farbmarkierungen ein. Mit diesen Biosensoren konnten sie räumliche Bewegungen des Proteins in Echtzeit in lebenden Zellen studieren. (Bild: Rudolf-

    International scientists led by Carsten Hoffmann and Martin Lohse identified for the first time beta-Arrestin as an independent signaling molecule. The protein modulates a pharmaceutically important pathway and leads to new drug targets, for example in pain therapy.

    Gemeinsam für Inklusion und Barrierefreiheit: Professor Reinhard Lelgemann, Irmgard Badura, Uni-Präsident Alfred Forchel und Sandra Mölter (v.l.).

    The disability commissioner of the Bavarian State Government, Irmgard Badura, handed the "Bayern barrierefrei" label to the University of Würzburg. It was presented in the name of Bavarian State Minister for Labour and Social Affairs, Emilia Müller, in recognition of the university's efforts in the field of inclusion and accessibility.

    Blattläuse stechen zielgenau in die Siebröhren der Pflanzen. Mit ihnen als Bio-Elektroden lassen sich die elektrischen Ströme messen, die dort fließen. (Bild: Jörg Fromm / Christian Wiese)

    Do plants have some kind of nervous system? This is difficult to establish as there are no suitable measurement methods around. Plant researchers from Würzburg used aphids for this purpose – and discovered that plants respond differently to different kinds of damage.

    Sportwissenschaftler und Informatiker der Uni Würzburg wollten herausfinden, wie akkurat aktuelle Fitnesstracker und Trainingscomputer messen. Und ob eine effiziente Trainingssteuerung für Athleten und Alltagsanwender damit überhaupt möglich ist. Auf

    Sports and computer scientists of the University of Würzburg have taken a close look at current fitness trackers, activity sensors and training computers. They wanted to find out how accurate these devices are and whether they are suitable for athletes and everyday users to manage their training. A first study has been published recently.
