CRISPR/Cas9 – GENE EDITING: New therapeutic approach for congenital heart defects

Scientists at the Heart Center of the University Medical Center Göttingen have for the first time found an approach for a personalised therapy option with “gene editing” for the Noonan Syndrome. Publication in the renowned journal “Circulation“. (umg/ mbexc) Congenital heart diseases are the most common organ defects. They occur

In one sweep: Visualization of protein mobility in the synapse

(mbexc/umg) All functions of the neural system, including body movements, sensory reactions, and information processing in the brain, depend on the constant and controlled communication between nerve cells. The contact sites between nerve cells, the synapses, have been extensively studied over the last decades, extending our understanding of brain functioning

On the way to the optical cochlear implant

Interdisciplinary team of scientists from the University Medical Center Göttingen and the University of Freiburg generate for the first time light-controlled behaviour in deaf rodents using optical cochlear implants based on light-emitting diodes. Published in Science Translational Medicine. (mbexc/umg) The cochlear implant (CI) enables worldwide over 700,000 people with profoundly

New biosensor detects cell-to-cell transmission of the Parkinson-associated protein α-Synuclein

Scientists of the Cluster of Excellence Multiscale Bioimaging develop a new biosensor capable of detecting the transmission of human α-synuclein, a key protein associated to Parkinson’s disease. Published in Nature Communications. (umg/mbexc) Human alpha-synuclein (hαSyn) is a physiological protein that is primarily found in nerve cells, and is involved in

Coupled hair cells in the inner ear – „Together we are strong!“
25.06.2020

Coupled hair cells in the inner ear – „Together we are strong!“

When we hear, the sensory hair cells in the cochlea of the inner ear transduce sound signals of a certain pitch and convert them for transmission to the brain. For the first time, scientists of the Göttingen Campus, the Cluster of Excellence “Multiscale Bioimaging” and the University College London have
