New gene therapy for children born deaf in clinical trials

To date, hearing impairment can only be treated with medical devices such as hearing aids or cochlear implants. Gene therapy could offer an alternative in certain cases in the future. Building on pioneering work by researchers at the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG), children suffering from a hearing impairment due

Energy supply in human cells is subject to quality control

Researchers at the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) and members of the MBExC have discovered a new quality control mechanism that regulates the energy production in human cells. This process takes place in mitochondria, the power plants of the cell. Malfunctions of mitochondria lead to serious diseases of the nerves,

Big impacts from small changes in cell

Research at Göttingen and Warwick Universities reveals how filament interactions affect cellular networks   Tiny things matter – for instance, one amino acid can completely alter the architecture of the cell. Researchers at the Universities of Göttingen and Warwick investigated the structure and mechanics of the main component of the

New insights into sound coding in our ears

Sensory cells and neurons in the ear communicate by secreting neurotransmitter in response to sound stimuli. Scientists of the University Medical Center Göttingen, the Cluster of Excellence Multiscale Bioimaging, and the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences describe new details of this process that regulates the release of neurotransmitters and

Detecting side effects of new drugs on the heart more efficiently

Scientists at the University Medical Center and the University of Göttingen have developed a novel method to predict the side effects of new drugs and therapeutic approaches on the heart more efficiently. The advantage: this method is already effective in a very early test phase, even before preclinical screening in

Protein stock for the beginning of a new life

How mysterious structures in the egg cell supply the early embryo as protein storage sites   When mammals have offspring, they invest a lot. Unlike fish or frogs, the embryo cannot develop on its own. It has to implant in the uterus, where it is supplied with everything it needs
