Hospitals where you can get an appointment quickly; a functioning judicial system; a refuse collection service that comes regularly: all this makes for a well-functioning state.

Theresa Paola Stawski, a political scientist from Würzburg, has investigated how well the states of the world function. Germany just made it into the top ten.

Magical texts of the Ancient Near East, Egypt and neighbouring regions are the focus of a new research group at the University of Würzburg. The DFG is providing around 3.5 million euros for the first phase.

Caught in the photo trap. Griffon vultures are rather unusual guests in Germany. These impressive birds inhabit more southerly climes in Europe.

In cooperation with several German national parks, researchers from the University of Würzburg are investigating the role of carrion in our ecosystems. In the Eifel National Park, unusual guests recently testified to the success of the project.

The logo of the EU project "Remote XUAR", designed in the shape of an eye, wants to say that researchers keep an eye on the situation of the Uyghurs even from a distance.

The situation of the Uyghur population in the Chinese region of Xinjiang has been largely unclear since 2017. Researchers are now seeking an approach using remote ethnography methods as part of an EU project.

Analysis of RNA sequencing data of immune cells (monocytes) from 215 healthy individuals. Each dot represents the transcriptional response of an individual in unstimulated monocytes (Ctrl) and after exposure to different pathogens (fungus: Aspergillus fumigatus (Af); bacteria: Neisseria meningitidis (Nm) and Staphylococcus aureus (Sa), respectively) for three and six hours. The colours indicate the stimulus and the time.

How do our genes determine the immune response to pathogens? This depends on small differences in the genome. The situation is complex, as a new study shows.
