From junior research group leader to full professor and spokesperson of the Research Center for Infectious Diseases (ZINF) at the University of Würzburg. This is the scientific career path of Cynthia Sharma.
The proteins of SARS-CoV-2 play key roles in how the virus manages to evade immune defense and replicate itself in patients’ cells. An international research team – with significant contribution from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) – has now compiled the most detailed view of the virus' protein structures available to date. The analysis employing artificial intelligence methods has revealed surprising findings.
What effects do family education programs have on the integration of refugees with children? Dr. Annette Korntheuer, Professor of Basics and Theories of Social Work at the Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, has been looking into this since 2018 as part of a German-Canadian cooperation. The Canadian and German non-governmental organizations "Mother Matters" and "Impuls Deutschland Stiftung e.V.” took the initiative in this international study. The project was funded by the Canadian Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.
