    KAI for Hamburg: DESY and HAW Hamburg agree on new cooperative venture

    Educating, researching, developing and creating new perspectives – together:the German research centre DESY and the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) today agreed on a new strategic Cooperation for Application and Innovation (KAI). The cooperative venture will focus on cooperativedegree programmes and teaching, research and development as well as innovation, technology and knowledge transfer. KAI is to strengthens the joint training of urgently needed highly qualified engineers and scientists. KAI will help shape Hamburg’s structural transformation to become a science and innovation metropolis in the north, through applied research and by developing sustainable and digital technologies. The City of Hamburg supports the cooperation with start-up funding of 120 000 euros .

    New world record in materials research - X-ray microscopy with 1000 tomograms per second

    Tomoscopy is an imaging method in which three-dimensional images of the inside of materials are calculated in rapid succession. Now a team led by HZB physicist Francisco García Moreno has achieved a new world record at the TOMCAT beamline of the Swiss Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institute: with 1000 tomograms per second, it is now possible to non-destructively document very fast processes and developments in materials on the micrometre scale, such as the burning of a sparkler or the foaming of a metal alloy for the production of stable lightweight materials.

    Bioengineering meets hepatitis B: Researchers design promising novel therapeutic candidates

    Researchers have designed antibodies as novel therapeutic candidates for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B and hepatocellular carcinoma. Their study in human cell cultures and in living mice showed the elimination of antigen-positive cells and reduction of tumor growth. The scientists now have teamed-up with industry partners to continue to develop this approach for clinical application and to initiate clinical studies.

    High risk of colorectal cancer in men only partly explainable

    Throughout the world, more men than women develop colorectal cancer. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center have now analyzed the extent to which known and presumed risk and protective factors contribute to this considerably higher risk of disease. Surprisingly, they found that only about half of this excess risk can be explained by the known risk factors. Further factors that increase the risk of colorectal cancer need to be identified and evaluated to improve screening in men in future.
