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).


20.11.18 HHU granted funds for new International Research Training Group in plant sciences

In November 2018, the German Research Foundation (DFG) announced that funds had been granted for 15 new Research Training Groups. One of the beneficiaries is the International Research Training Group (IRTG) “NEXTplant” (Network, exchange, and training program to understand plant resource allocation), for which Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) submitted an application in cooperation with Michigan State University (MSU). It will start work in May 2019.


19.11.18 DFG funding for doctoral training in competition economics

Düsseldorf - The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved the application of the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics (DICE) at the Heinrich-Heine-University for the continuation of the Graduate School on “Competition Economics”. The total funding of around 2.7 million euros will ensure the continuation of the graduate training at DICE until October 2023.


24.10.18 HHU physicists part of Cluster of Excellence in the field of quantum information processing

The universities of Aachen, Bonn and Cologne have been successful in the Excellence Strategy competition with their Cluster of Excellence entitled “Matter and Light for Quantum Computing” (ML4Q). The researchers are focussing on the next level of data processing and dissemination, i.e. quantum computers and networks. Professor Dagmar Bruß and Professor Reinhold Egger, physicists at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), will be in charge of two sub-projects. Work will start in early 2019.
