A research team at RUB has discovered the mechanisms by which the coronavirus attacks the heart – and how it could be stopped.
Rocaglates from mahogany plants raise hopes for the development of an antiviral drug.
Calpains cut proteins into harmful fragments. The process can be stopped in a cell model.
Multiple sclerosis causes nerve cells to lose their insulating layer. Researchers from Bochum are looking for approaches to stimulate regeneration processes. They have identified two relevant proteins.
Up to now, protecting hardware against manipulation has been a laborious business: expensive, and only possible on a small scale. And yet, two simple antennas might do the trick.
Plesiosaurs are characterized by four uniform flippers. It was possible to reconstruct whether they used these in a rowing or flying motion underwater thanks to a combination of paleontological and engineering methods.
High-resolution microscopy now enabled an international research team to enlarge the knowledge about species-specific differences of the architecture of cortical neurons.
Carbon nanotubes glow brighter in the presence of neurotransmitters. This facilitates the easy and accurate measurement of signals between nerve cells.
Wirelessly functioning devices are omnipresent in our households. However, wireless communication endangers our privacy: Passive eavesdroppers are able to obtain sensitive data through intercepted high-frequency signals.
International researchers supply recommendations for urban planning.
People who practice intensive meditation report memories of states in which their sense of self dissolves. Is this at all possible?
A comparative study alleviates maternal concerns.
Copper and silver are known for their antibacterial properties. Researchers from Bochum have explored their effectiveness against viruses.
Whether a slimy stain at a crime scene is nasal mucus or semen can make a difference to investigations. But telling bodily fluids apart isn’t easy.
Bochum researchers have gained new insights into the cellular and molecular mechanisms of absence seizures and potential therapy options.
Michael Walter brings together research areas that, at first glance, have little to do with each other – ranging from algebra to quantum computing.
Artificial intelligence is capable of identifying slurs. But it has a hard time with rather more hidden forms of linguistic violence. For the time being.
Professional forensic investigators can tell a lot from digital data footprints. But they’re not the only ones.
Do we have to curtail our freedom for more security? Theresa Bosl analyses how counter-terrorism in Germany might be reformed.
In many industrial plants, all processes are automated. In case of a malfunction, it is important that employees have the necessary skills at their fingertips.
