14.06.19 Physik-Nobelpreisträger Gérard Mourou wird Ehrendoktor der HHU

Gestern verlieh die Mathematisch-Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (HHU) den Titel eines Ehrendoktors an den Physik-Nobelpreisträger des Jahres 2018, Prof. Dr. Gérard Mourou. Der renommierte Laserphysiker wurde für seine intensive und nachhaltige Unterstützung des Forschungsfelds Laser-Plasma-Physik an der HHU ausgezeichnet.


31.05.19 Title of „Appelate Professor“ for Dr. Enno Freye removed

The Medical Faculty of the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf (HHU) has removed the title of „appelate professor“ from Dr. Enno Freye.


24.05.19 Human iPSC-derived MSCs (iMSCs) from aged individuals acquire a rejuvenation signature.

The use of primary mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is fraught with ageing-related shortfalls such as limited expansion and early senescence. Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) -derived MSCs (iMSCs) have been shown to be a useful clinically relevant source of MSCs that circumvent these ageing-associated drawbacks.


23.05.19 US hyperthermia award goes to PD Dr. Rüdiger Wessalowski

At its 2019 Annual Meeting in St. Pete, Florida, the US Society for Thermal Medicine (STM) awarded the J. Eugene Robinson Award in recognition of outstanding contributions to research in the field of hyperthermic oncology to PD Dr. Rüdiger Wessalowski. He has been honoured for his pioneering work in developing treatment concepts for tumour therapy for children, including infants, with malignant tumours. He is a Senior Consultant at the Department of Paediatric Oncology, Haematology and Immunology.


14.05.19 Nuts in the salad

14 May 2019 – People with food allergies have to avoid the foods that trigger their allergic reaction. When visiting a restaurant, however, it’s not so easy to find out whether foods that cause allergies are used there, particularly as even the tiniest amounts are enough to cause an allergic reaction. The obvious thing to do would be for the restaurant guest to ask, and this is often recommended. But according to a recently published study by the Institute of Occupational, Social and Environmental Medicine at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, this is not a reliable solution.


26.03.19 Function decoded: protein influences growth processes and hormonal signalling

The working group under Junior Professor Dr. Mathias Beller from the Institute of Mathematical Modelling of Biological Systems at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf (HHU) has analysed the function of a lipid droplet-associated protein. They used fruit flies to demonstrate that the protein has a major impact on growth processes and their adaptation to environmental conditions. The results of the study have now been published in the journal Cell Reports.


07.02.19 HHU-Biologen machen Schnittblumen länger haltbar

Rechtzeitig zum Valentinstag stellen Pflanzenforscher der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (HHU) ein neues, synthetisches Peptid vor, das ein Verwelken von Schnittblumen verzögern kann. Ihre Ergebnisse zur sogenannten Seneszenz veröffentlichten sie in der aktuellen Ausgabe der Fachzeitschrift Scientific Reports.


31.01.19 Wie Pflanzen mit Eisenmangel umgehen

Gemeinsam haben Forschungsgruppen von der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (HHU) und Westfälischen Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU) eine neue Schaltzelle gefunden, mit der Pflanzen ihre Reaktionen auf Eisenmangel steuern. Die Ergebnisse ihrer Forschungen an der Modellpflanze Arabidopsis thaliana veröffentlichen sie heute in der Fachzeitschrift Developmental Cell.


18.12.18 Understanding metabolic processes through machine learning

Bioinformatics researchers at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) are using machine learning techniques to better understand enzyme kinetics and thus also complex metabolic processes. The team led by first author Dr. David Heckmann has described its results in the current issue of the journal “Nature Communications”.


10.12.18 HHU biologists help formulate European plant research strategy

Safeguarding food supplies for the world’s drastically growing population in the face of climate change confronts plant research with tremendous challenges. In the framework of CropBooster-P, an EU-funded project, researchers from eight European countries want to develop a research roadmap. Amongst the contributors are Professor Andreas Weber and Professor Peter Westhoff from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU).
