Professor David Stegner recently accepted the professorship of Vascular Imaging at the Rudolf Virchow Center. With his group, he studies the interactions of blood platelets with immune cells and how these affect inflammatory processes such as stroke.more
As part of the "Highlights of Physics", Dr. Sebastian Bothe from the RVZ introduced interested students to the methodology of X-ray crystallography.more
Poxviruses have found a unique way of translating their genes into proteins in the infected organism. A team of researchers from Würzburg shows for the first time how the molecular machinery involved works at an atomic level.more
Soap molecules reversibly open specific channel proteins in bacteria. These channels are part of the defense mechanisms of bacteria and therefore of relevance to the medical field. A Würzburg research group published these results in the renowned journal PNAS.more
mRNA plays a key role in the conversion of genetic information from DNA to proteins. Their production is a delicate process. A research team at the University of Würzburg has now identified a crucial factor.
