Fighting the herpes virus

New insights into preventing herpes infections have been published in Nature Communications. Researchers from the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB) at the MDC used single-cell RNA sequencing to better understand the viral infections. If your lip starts to tingle and itch, it often means that you’re about to get a cold sore, a

Fighting neuronal loss

LMU researchers have developed a promising method for targeted generation of neurons from the brain’s own non-neuronal cells after loss. Scientists from the Biomedical Center at LMU Munich and Helmholtz Zentrum München led by Prof. Magdalena Götz have made a crucial step towards fighting neuronal loss. They developed a methodology which allows turning local brain
