    When vibrations increase on cooling: Anti-freezing observed

    An international team has observed an amazing phenomenon in a nickel oxide material during cooling: Instead of freezing, certain fluctuations actually increase as the temperature drops. Nickel oxide is a model system that is structurally similar to high-temperature superconductors. The experiment shows once again that the behaviour of this class of materials still holds surprises.

    Gene activities of an oral microbe mapped

    HIRI and JMU Würzburg create first RNA atlas of Fusobacterium nucleatum. Fusobacterium nucleatum is found in the human oral cavity and is an important component of an intact microflora in the mouth. However, it can also contribute to the development of periodontitis. And more importantly, the germ is also increasingly being found within the human body, namely on colon cancer cells and breast carcinomas. There, it appears to accelerate tumor growth and complicate ...

    New app for Corona risk assessment: CoVis

    From theoretical physics to entrepreneurship propelled by a deadly new virus: DESY physicist Ayan Paul is launching a new app against Corona with his spin-off company. It combines public data with personal information and location, providing users with a highly individualized assessment of their current risk to contract SARS-CoV-2 with recommendations for action.

    Mix-and-match Vaccine Against COVID-19 Tested: Immune Response Stronger Than After Two Doses of Astrazeneca Vaccine

    For safety reasons, the Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) in Germany recommends that anyone under the age of 60 who initially received a vaccine from AstraZeneca should be given an mRNA vaccine at their second appointment. Up until now, there were no data available to indicate to what extent the human organism would react to such mix-and-match vaccination and start to form antibodies. A research team has now found that the antibody response is much stronger with the mix-and-match...

    HZDR team works on air purification concepts to reduce viruses

    Full classrooms, travel on public transportation, relaxed shopping in malls – since the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, these are not things to be taken for granted. In order to explore how virus transmission by aerosols and droplets can be avoided, seven Helmholtz centers, three universities and numerous business partners have come together in the CORAERO project which is receiving around six million euro from the Helmholtz Association’s Initiative and Networking Fund for a period of 4.5 years, starting in summer 2021. A research team at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has been granted 1.2 million euro for experimental and numerical analyses of aerosol dispersion indoors and the development of special air purification technologies to reduce virus transmission indoors.
