    Dr. Elmar Wolf

    One specific gene is overexpressed in many human tumours. This particular gene is the centre of Elmar Wolf’s research activities. The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded him a "Starting Grant" worth €1.5 million for this purpose.

    It is possible to unlearn fears. And this works even better when a specific region of the brain has previously been stimulated magnetically. This has been shown by researchers from the Würzburg University Hospital in a new study.

    Wie ein Raumschiff landet das komplexe Zuckermolekül (bunt) passgenau auf dem Tumorprotein Galectin-1, das hier wie ein Meteorit aussieht und in schwarz-weiß dargestellt ist. (Bild: AK Seibel, VCH-Wiley)

    Scientists from Würzburg have synthesized a complex sugar molecule which specifically binds to the tumor protein Galectin-1. This could help to recognize tumors at an early stage and to combat them in a targeted manner.

    About two years ago, scientists from Würzburg discovered that a certain class of receptors is capable of perceiving mechanical stimuli. Now they have begun to unravel the molecular mechanisms behind the discovery.

    So lässt sich im Mausmodell für die Kinderdemenz die Degeneration der Netzhaut bremsen: Links die Ganglienzellschicht einer gesunden Netzhaut, in der Mitte eine erkrankte. Rechts eine erkrankte Netzhaut unter Behandlung mit dem Medikament Teriflunomide

    Although dementia is most often seen in adults, childhood or adolescent dementia does occur. A team of researchers from the University of Würzburg believes that established therapeutic drugs might be effective against childhood dementia.
