Researchers at the new Center for Philology and Digitality aim to bridge the gap between the humanities, computer science, and the digital humanities.
Prof. Jürgen Groll is one of the driving forces behind the Würzburg Center of Polymers for Life. In this interview, he discusses the new center—and the challenges involved in 3D printing living tissue.
Biodiversity researchers develop mechanistic simulation models to unravel the processes influencing biodiversity origin, maintenance and dynamics across space and time, from individuals to entire ecosystems.
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.
At JMU Würzburg, Professor Laurens W. Molenkamp and his team are conducting pioneering work on topological materials. With its cutting-edge technology, the new Institute for Topological Insulators will be the ideal place for them to develop this research.
The German government is providing about 2.4 million Euros for a new research group in infectious diseases at JMU Würzburg. Dr. Carmen Aguilar will use this grant to search for new therapeutic approaches against one of the most common and recurrent bacterial infections.
Life-like organ replicas - so-called 3D organoids - are a good way to research disease processes. A team from the University of Würzburg has now presented a kind of blueprint for such a model of the cervix.
Little is known about the food webs of herbivorous insects. A team from the Würzburg Biocenter is investigating, in Lower Franconia as well as in the Berchtesgaden Alps.
If restaurants list the CO2 emissions for each dish on their menus or highlight low-emission options, diners are more likely to choose more climate-friendly options. This has been shown in a new study by the University of Würzburg.
Inhibitory synapses in neuron cultures and brain tissue can now be visualized with ease and with high contrast. The newly developed synthetic affinity probe Sylite can be applied both for widefield and confocal 3D volumetric synapse visualization, for in-tissue inhibitory circuits mapping and for super-resolution imaging of synapses.
