Prof. Dr. Andrea von Hülsen-Esch, Prorektorin für Internationales der HHU, unterzeichnete am 03.03.2018 mit Prof. Dr. Hoshang Talebi Habib-Abadi, Präsident der Universität Isfahan, eine Kooperationsvereinbarung zwischen beiden Universitäten.

Weitere Informationen zur aktuellen HHU-Kooperationsoffensive im Iran: Prof. Andrea von Hülsen-Esch, prorector of international relations at the HHU, on the 3rd of March signed a contract of cooperation with Prof. Hoshang Talebi Habib-Abadi, president of the university of Isfahan, sealing the cooperation between the two universities.

The journey to Iran covered the cities of Teheren and Isfahan. It was organised as part of the "German Day of Science" of several German universities at Iran University of Science and Technology (Teheran) and Isfahan University of Medical Sciences.


22.02.18 Lessons from yeast may help tackle dementia

Together with Japanese colleagues, biophysicists at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and Jülich Research Centre have examined the folding of specific proteins in yeast fungi. They discovered similar mechanisms to those found in prions, i.e. proteins that are misfolded and can trigger neurodegenerative diseases. From the prions in yeast, the researchers were able to acquire new insights into the misfolding of these harmful proteins. Their results have been published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

20.02.18 HHU researchers develop new concept for efficient OLEDs

In collaboration with British colleagues, chemists at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) have discovered that simple organic carbonyls are potential emitters for organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). These molecules are much cheaper and easier to produce than the compounds used today. The research results were presented as a cover story in the scientific journal CHEMPHYSCHEM.

06.12.17 Promising anti-leukaemia drug candidate

Researchers led by Professor Holger Gohlke at the Institute for Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), together with colleagues at Georg-Speyer-Haus in Frankfurt/Main, have developed a potential drug candidate that could act against leukaemia. Use of the respective patents to develop a therapeutic product is now being financed from NRW and European Union funds.

28.11.17 Anti-tuberculosis drug from African medicinal plant endophyte

Endophytic fungi are a very promising source of new active substances. An interdisciplinary team of researchers in Düsseldorf has identified and isolated the new agent chlorflavonin, which shows a previously unknown mode of action against tuberculosis. They have now published their results, which were produced in the framework of Research Training Group 2158, in the scientific journal American Chemical Society – Infectious Diseases.

07.09.17 Photosynthesis originates from undigested bacteria

Higher cells originally acquired the ability for photosynthesis by assimilating cyanobacteria and converting them into their own cell organelles or what are known as plastids. How exactly this occurred has been examined by a research group led by Dr. Eva Nowack of the Department of Biology at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) using the amoeba Paulinella chromatophora. The results were published today in the scientific journal Current Biology.

25.07.17 Kick-off for next generation of nano systems technology

In the framework of the new “FunALD” project, a consortium of companies together with research and higher education institutions, including Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU), wants to develop materials for innovative and intelligent sensors. At the heart of the project are the manufacture and use of a new class of functional materials on nanometre scale. The role of HHU’s physicists is above all to take care of nano and surface analysis.
