Diabetes Drug May Improve Fracture Healing

22/03/2017 | German Institute of Human Nutrition

A new study shows that gliptins — well known from diabetes treatment — play an important role in the cellular composition of bones. The discovery provides a novel therapeutic approach to improve bone... more info

The vicious circle of drought

15/03/2017 | Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

Logging that happens today and potential future rainfall reductions in the Amazon could increase the risk for self-amplified forest loss. A great variety of tree species in a forest patch can... more info

Simulating cellular sorting processes

08/03/2017 | DWI – Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials

Researchers developed a set of different, micrometer-sized building blocks, which can self-sort and co-assemble into defined compositions and disassemble at the push of a button. Using this... more info

Incorrect gene activation causes cancer

27/02/2017 | Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute

Researchers verified that a lack of methyl groups in the gene body leads to an incorrect gene activation and, as a consequence, to the emergence of cancer. Chemical regulation of gene expression... more info
