Cell labelling method from microscopy adapted for use in whole-body imaging for the first time

Researchers develop imaging methods to examine bodily processes from the individual building blocks to the whole system

01-Oct-2021

Processes and structures within the body that are normally hidden from the eye can be made visible through medical imaging. Scientists use imaging to investigate the complex functions of cells and organs and search for ways to better detect and treat diseases. In everyday medical practice, images ...

B cells of the immune system discovered in the meninges

A comprehensive analysis of white blood cells in the tissue surrounding the brain

20-Sep-2021

The brain holds numerous unsolved medical mysteries. Only a few years ago it was discovered that the outer layer of the meninges is interlaced with lymphatic vessels. As these vessels are known to transport immune cells – the white blood cells – this finding has increasingly brought into focus ...

Animal-based research: Scientists develop new experimental design for an improved reproducibility

The reproducibility and validity of studies involving animals is improved by carrying out smaller, independent ‘mini-experiments’

26-Oct-2020

In research, the results of studies must be precise and reproducible. For this reason, researchers carried out experiments under strictly standardized laboratory conditions. However, despite the high standards applied, results from individual studies cannot always be reproduced in practice. ...

New method for the measurement of nano-structured light fields

Researchers combine nano-optics and organic chemistry to measure complex light landscapes in the tight focus of a laser beam

24-Sep-2019

Structured laser light has already opened up various different applications: it allows for precise material machining, trapping, manipulating or defined movement of small particles or cell compartments, as well as increasing the bandwidth for next-generation intelligent computing. If these light ...
