    A Würzburg research team describes a hitherto unknown pathogenic mechanism of motor neuron disorders. This should lead to a rethinking in drug development.

    Rezeptoren und G-Proteine wandern über die Zelloberfläche

    Using a revolutionary live-cell microscopy technique, an international team of scientist has observed for the first time individual receptors for hormones and widely used drugs at work in intact cells.

    Zellen unter dem Mikroskop

    Myc proteins play an important role when cells become cancerous. Researchers from the University of Würzburg have studied just how they do this. They might thus open up ways to develop new therapies.
