A fine sense for molecules

Unique laser technology for the analysis of the molecular composition of biological samples

07-Jan-2020

At the biochemical level, organisms can be thought of as complex collections of different species of molecules. In the course of their metabolism, biological cells synthesize chemical compounds, and modify them in multifarious ways. Many of these products are released into the intercellular ...

AI-driven single blood cell classification

New method to support physicians in leukemia diagnostics

14-Nov-2019

For the first time, researchers from Helmholtz Zentrum München and the University Hospital of LMU Munich show that deep learning algorithms perform similar to human experts when classifying blood samples from patients suffering from acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Their proof of concept study paves ...

An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

15-Oct-2019

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols. The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between ...

Bringing cancer medication safely to its destination

12-Aug-2019

Treating cancer more selectively and more effectively – this could be achieved with an innovative technology developed by teams of researchers at the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU). The process transforms proteins ...

Tiny “blinkers” reveal molecules inside cells

18-Mar-2019

LMU physicists led by Ralf Jungmann introduce an entirely new approach to super-resolution microscopy: Tiny ‘blinkers’ enable simultaneous imaging of multiple biomolecules. In everyday life, blinking lights can send signals – for example, that a car is going to turn. Now, researchers have ...

Imaging nerve-cell interactions

04-Jan-2019

A new imaging technique developed by LMU researchers is garnering lots of attention. Based on a method for making tissues, organs and even whole organisms transparent, it promises to transform studies of the nervous system in particular. A new bioimaging technology provides unprecedented insights ...

The roles of RNA-RNA interactions

Chronic regeneration of damaged endothelial cells promotes the development of atherosclerosis

23-Jul-2018

Atherosclerosis – the condition popularly known as hardening of the arteries – develops almost exclusively at junctions and sharp turns in the arterial tree. This is because, at such sites, the endothelial cells that form the lining of the blood vessels are particularly sensitive to damage – and ...

Mapping electromagnetic waveforms

Novel electron microscope can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second

26-Jul-2016

Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and it is difficult to capture them in action. However, a better understanding of the dynamics of field variation in electronic components, ...
