Working and living with a view of St Peter's Basilica: This has been Manfred Bauer's privilege for the past five years.

He works in the Vatican and deals with severe violations of the church's moral doctrine among others. Nevertheless, Manfred Bauer considers his everyday work routine to be as ordinary as that of any other office job.

Students on the Würzburg campus.

The Times Higher Education Rankings consistently bases its assessment on the quality of teaching and the study environment on the opinion of students. The University of Würzburg is ranked in the top 10 in Germany.

Epichloë hypha between plant cells.

Stories of mass poisoning incidents of livestock due to toxic grasses made headlines especially overseas. Animal ecologists from Würzburg have studied whether this hazard is also lurking on German pastures.

Würzburg Scientists found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in the Journal “Haematologica”.

Global warming can disrupt the mutualistic interactions of plants and pollinators as in the case of the European orchard bee, the red mason bee and the pasque flower.

Plants rely on bees for pollination; bees need plants to supply nectar and pollen. Scientists from the University of Würzburg have studied how climate change affects these mutualistic interactions.

Illustration of the single-cell analysis using scSLAM-seq.

Würzburg Scientists have precisely followed the activity of thousands of genes in individual cells for hours. For the first time, they were able to show why some cells are successfully infected by viruses, whereas others are not.

Venus flytrap

Venus flytraps are capable of detecting the movements of even the smallest insects. This mechanism protects the plant against starving from hyperactivity as a new study conducted by scientists from Würzburg and Cambridge reveals.

Sonate-Projektleiter Oleksii Balagurin bei der Arbeit am Nanosatelliten.

SONATE, the latest satellite engineered at the University of Würzburg, was lofted into space on Friday. Its mission is to test cutting-edge technology developed at the University of Würzburg in orbit.

The European spruce bark beetle

Bark beetles are currently responsible for killing an unprecedented number of trees in forests across Europe and North America. Researchers are therefore urging to step up research into bark beetles – also in view of climate change.
