    “There is no place for sexual harassment at the MDC”

    The MDC is committed to maintaining respectful interactions at the research center and is taking decisive action to prevent and address bullying, discrimination, and sexual harassment. Since early 2019 an Anti-Harassment Task Force, consisting of a broad cross-section of stakeholders, has been preparing guidelines for this very purpose. The Board of Directors has declared its support for the proposed guidelines.

    World Health Summit: How Microbiomedical Research is Changing Medicine

    The human body hosts myriads of microbial ecosystems. Their diversity is shaped by our living conditions and habits, and in turn they are shaping our wellbeing. At the World Health Summit, international experts will explore where microbiome research intersects with unmet medical needs and how to devise preventative health policies.

    Forschungszentrum Jülich Contributed to Google’s Demonstration of Quantum Supremacy

    Jülich, 23 October 2019 – After rumors had been spreading for weeks, now it’s official. Google and collaborators, including Forschungszentrum Jülich, have achieved a milestone in quantum computing called quantum supremacy as the researchers claim in the renowned journal “Nature”. The term marks the moment when a quantum computer, for the first time, outperforms state-of-the-art conventional computers for a specific task. While the Google quantum processor takes about 200 seconds, the world’s fastest supercomputers would need approximately 10.000 years to perform an equivalent task. Researchers of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre under the lead of Kristel Michielsen took part in verifying and benchmarking the quantum processor with simulations carried out on the Jülich supercomputer JUWELS.

    Identification of a ferroptosis suppressor protein allows for new anticancer treatment approach

    A team of researchers lead by Helmholtz Zentrum München and the University of Würzburg identified an enzyme as a novel and strong inhibitor of ferroptosis, the iron dependent form of cell death: ferroptosis suppressor protein-1, short FSP1. This protein is expressed in a variety of cancer cell lines and therefore represents an attractive drug target for cancer treatment. In fact, the first FSP1 inhibitor described in the researchers’ study published in Nature sensitizes tumor cells to...
