    Liver tissue with innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), visualised here as red dots.

    Against infections, tumours and inflammations, immune cells are locally positioned as rapid reaction forces in the organs of the body. On site, they specialise and take on various tasks.

    The German Aerospace Society awarded the prestigious Eugen-Sänger-Medal to Professor Klaus Schilling for his outstanding achievements in the development of small satellites.

    Researcher Katalin Karikó receives a prestigious award from Würzburg.

    With her research, biochemist Katalin Karikó laid the foundation for the development of RNA vaccines against the coronavirus. Now she is being honoured for this by the Würzburg Societas Physico-Medica.

    The JMU main building

    The prestigious Shanghai Ranking counts the University of Würzburg among the top 250 universities in the world. In Germany, the University is on 11th place.

    The start-up Flux Polymers, which has its roots at the University of Würzburg, offers a simple and easy solution to keep plastic surfaces free of bacteria. Recently, it has found an investor and can now start its operational business.

    Model of the sensor film for measuring the material load of air and space vehicles in flight. On the right, the trophy with which this idea was awarded.

    Using a sensor film to monitor how well aircraft and spacecraft withstand the mechanical stresses of flight: Würzburg researchers have received a prize for this idea, which comes with a lot of money.
