    The combination of a dye molecule and tryptophan opens up wholly new insights into the movements of the protein Hsp90.

    Observing in-protein motions with high spatial and temporal resolution: This is made possible by a new technology developed by scientists from the University of Würzburg, giving new insight into the functional mechanisms of very special proteins.

    Great honour for the Würzburg science: The European Physical Society (EPS) has distinguished the institute where in 1895 Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered the radiation later named after him. The building is now the third "Historic Site" of the EPS in Germany.

    Beryllium in the center, flanked by two stabilizing cyclic ligands: another "world premiere" from Würzburg chemistry.

    The world of chemistry has a new first: in the journal Nature Chemistry, a research group at the University of Würzburg has presented the first soluble and stable molecules containing an s-block atom in its elemental state. Normally these elements are highly reactive.

    Histological skin examination: Increased scaling (*) is found in psoriasis (A) compared to healthy skin (B) and a visible extension of the topmost skin layer (epidermis, **). Below a cluster of inflammation cells (+).

    B lymphocytes, special cells of the immune system, play a major role in psoriasis. Scientists from Würzburg have made this discovery in a recent study. The cells might be a promising target for new therapy.
