Molecular libraries for organic light-emitting diodes

(Goethe University Frankfurt) FRANKFURT. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are promising candidates for flexible flat displays. By means of a screening process developed by chemists at Goethe University Frankfurt, it is now possible to identify more quickly lead structures with superior luminescence and charge-transport properties.

Measuring the shadow of the black hole

(Goethe University Frankfurt) As part of the collaboration 'BlackHoleCam' the research group of Prof. Luciano Rezzolla of Goethe University Frankfurt contributes to the international Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration, which is imagining for the first time the black-hole candidate at the Center of our Milky Way.

EU funds research on biofuels and infectious diseases

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Two ERC Advanced Investigator Grants of the European Research Council to the amount of ? 2.5 million each are going to researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt. Biochemist and physician Professor IvanShow More Summary

Tracing down linear ubiquitination: New technology enables detailed analysis of target proteins

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Volker Busskamp receives prize for application-oriented neurobiological research

(Goethe University Frankfurt) The young researcher has been awarded for his contribution to a gene therapy approach to treat retinitis pigmentosa and for the development of artificial neuronal circuits. Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited eye disease that leads to blindness.

Yuan Chang and Patrick Moore win prize for the discovery of two cancer viruses

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Scientists looking for new tumor viruses have to keep an eye out for the virus genes rather than the viral particles. This year's winners of the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize were twice successful with this strategy.

How to brew high-value fatty acids with brewer's yeast

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt have succeeded in producing fatty acids in large quantities from sugar or waste containing sugar with the help of yeasts.

An utter shambles

(Goethe University Frankfurt) A research group found out: household chaos has an adverse effect on emotional climate and parents' behavior.

Gastrointestinal cancer: Physical exercise helps during chemo

(Goethe University Frankfurt) A young researcher of Goethe University has shown: walking or jogging helps patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancer to cope better with the side effects of chemotherapy.

More individual therapy for blood cancer patients

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Because it is impossible to predict which acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) patients will benefit, all patients are routinely treated with chemotherapy. Researchers from Goethe-University Frankfurt have now discovered a novel biomarker that enables the detection of therapy responders and non-responders with high accuracy.

Fundamental solid state phenomenon unraveled

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt and Technische Universität Dresden have made a pioneering discovery during their study of a phase transition from an electrical conductor to an insulator (Mott metal-insulator transition).

Drugs from nature—big effects of multiple compounds in small amounts

A research group led by Professor Helge Bode from Goethe University Frankfurt has discovered a whole class of new peptides with which bacteria are able to kill insect larvae.

Partnership at a distance: Deep-frozen helium molecules

(Goethe University Frankfurt) As atomic physicists in Frankfurt have now been able to confirm, over 75 percent of the time helium atoms are so far apart that their bond can be explained only by the quantum-mechanical tunnel effect.

New chemistry of life

(Goethe University Frankfurt) A team of scientists under the lead of Ivan Dikic, Director of the Institute of Biochemistry II at Goethe University Frankfurt, has now discovered a novel mechanism of ubiquitination, by which Legionella bacteria can seize control over their host cells. Legionella causes deadly pneumonia in immunocompromised patients.

New chemistry of life: Novel ubiquitination mechanism explains pathogenic effects of Legionella infection

A team of scientists under the lead of Ivan Dikic, Director of the Institute of Biochemistry II at Goethe University Frankfurt, has now discovered a novel mechanism of ubiquitination, by which Legionella bacteria can seize control over their host cells. Legionella causes deadly pneumonia in immunocompromised patients.

Long-term remuneration of German board members could have a more lasting effect

(Goethe University Frankfurt) In Dax and MDax-listed companies, long-term remuneration generally takes the shape of cash and not shares, reveals a study by PwC and Goethe University Frankfurt.

New research training group at Goethe University Frankfurt: 'Configurations of Film'

(Goethe University Frankfurt) The first Research Training Group ever with a focus on film studies will be established at Goethe University Frankfurt. In the framework of the RTG with the title ;Configurations of Film', twelve doctoral...Show More Summary

Structure of 'Iron Hammer' protein complex solved

(Goethe University Frankfurt) An interdisciplinary research group from Goethe University Frankfurt, the EMBL in Heidelberg, and the Gene Center of the University of Munich (LMU) has succeeded in solving the structure of a central player in the process of translating the genetic code into Proteins. Its nickname is 'Iron Hammer'.

Which chemicals are hazardous to reproduction?

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Regulatory authorities around the world can in future instruct manufacturers of chemicals and drugs to check their products for harmful effects on reproduction by means of a new test with molluscs.

Energy storage system of tomorrow tested for the first time in Lake Constance

(Goethe University Frankfurt) How can the enormous amounts of electricity generated through offshore wind power be temporarily stored on site? Until now there was no answer to this question.
