Archaeologists from the University of Münster and the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia have discovered remains of a Roman arched aqueduct during excavation work on the Hellenistic royal city of Artashat-Artaxata ...

Newly developed, bioinspired cell delivery vehicles

Nanocontainers can transport substances into cells where they can then take effect. This is the method used in, for example, the mRNA vaccines currently being employed against COVID-19 as well as certain cancer drugs. In ...

A simplified method for calibrating optical tweezers

Measurements of biomechanical properties inside living cells require minimally-invasive methods. Optical tweezers are particularly attractive as a tool. They use the momentum of light to trap and manipulate micro- or nanoscale ...

New method for the molecular functionalization of surfaces

One vision that is currently driving material scientists is to combine organic molecules (and their diverse functionalities) with the technological possibilities offered by extremely sophisticated semiconductor electronics. ...

Research team investigates causes of tuberous sclerosis

Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) affects between one and two of every 10,000 new-born babies. This genetic disease leads to the formation of benign tumors which can massively impair the proper functioning of vital organs ...

Plant provenance influences pollinators

Insect decline is one of the greatest challenges facing our society. As a result of the destruction of many natural habitats, bees, bumblebees, butterflies, beetles and the like find less and less food. As a consequence, ...

Scientists provide new insights into the citric acid cycle

Researchers led by Professors Ivan Berg (University of Münster) and Wolfgang Eisenreich (TUM) report new insights into the citric acid cycle: Certain bacteria can use this central metabolic pathway "backward," but to do ...
