    10 Years of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin: A strong partner in the scientific landscape

    Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) is celebrating its tenth anniversary on 18 February 2019 with around 250 invited guests from science, politics and industry. The Centre is one of the world's top institutions and makes a decisive contribution to Berlin as a location for cutting-edge research. This was emphasized by Michael Müller, Governing Mayor of Berlin, in reference to the anniversary.

    Antibiotic resistances spread faster than so far thought

    By studying fish raised in aquaculture, researchers from the Helmholtz Zentrum München, the University of Copenhagen and the University of Campinas in Brazil have shed new light on the mechanisms by which antibiotic resistance genes are transferred between bacteria. According to the study published in the journal ‘Microbiome’, those mechanisms are more varied than previously thought.

    Five First Place Spots for Tomorrow’s Researchers

    Jülich, 15 February 2019 – Five projects in various categories were selected and awarded first place by the panel at this year’s 19th regional heat of the “Jugend forscht – Schüler experimentieren” competition, which was held at Forschungszentrum Jülich on Friday. The seven young researchers involved in the winning projects, who are from Jülich and Aachen, will now go on to compete in the next round on the state level.

    Everything at a glance – new 3D method visualizes nanoparticles in the lung

    Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München, a partner in the German Center for Lung Research, have presented a new imaging method in the scientific journal ‘ACS Nano’. This now makes it possible, for the first time, to visualize intact mouse lungs and map the spatial distribution of nanoparticles inside them. The new technique can be used, for example, to measure the efficacy of active substances used in inhaled aerosol therapies.

    On the origin of B1 cells

    A new MDC study may resolve a decades-old debate in immunology: A team led by Prof. Klaus Rajewsky reports in Science that distinct progenitor cells are not required for the development of B1 cells. Instead, the team’s experiments show that a particular type of B-cell receptor can reprogram B2 cells into B1 cells, suggesting that B1 cells emerge as a consequence of their special B-cell receptors.

    For Start-ups and Founders: Inauguration of DESY Innovation Village

    “I Love Innovation” was the fitting motto with which the DESY Innovation Village was officially inaugurated today, on Valentine’s Day, in the presence of DESY’s Board of Directors and representatives of the federal and local Hamburg governments. It will offer DESY start-ups offices, workshops and laboratory space.The DESY Innovation Village currently has a floor space of approx. 1000 square metres.

    Spintronics by “straintronics”: Superferromagnetism with electric-field induced strain

    Data storage in todays magnetic media is very energy consuming. Combination of novel materials and the coupling between their properties could reduce the energy needed to control magnetic memories thus contributing to a smaller carbon footprint of the IT sector. Now an international team led by HZB has observed at the HZB lightsource BESSY II a new phenomenon in iron nanograins: whereas normally the magnetic moments of the iron grains are disordered with respect each other at room temperature, this can be changed by applying an electric field: This field induces locally a strain on the system leading to the formation of a so-called superferromagnetic ordered state.
