This year, the #Helmholtz Association celebrates the 200th birthday of Hermann von Helmholtz. Under the affectionate nickname #HäkelHermann, a crocheted doll in the Helmholtz look explored some of the member institutes - including the #mdcBerlin. There it went into the laboratories of the AG Junker, which deals with "Quantitative Developmental Biology". More in the video!

A new gene-editing technique can be used to correct mutations in muscle stem cells, paving the way for the first potential cell therapy for genetic muscle disorders. The ECRC team led by Professor Simone Spuler has published its findings in the journal "JCI Insight".

Warum dauert es so lange, bis aus Grundlagenforschung eine Therapie wird? Für uns war diese Frage der Ausgangspunkt für einen Film, in dem wir den langen Weg einer Forschung gegen Krebs am MDC nachzeichnen:

Since the beginning of June, Fabian Coscia has been leading the junior research group Spatial Proteomics at the MDC. He uses artificial intelligence to analyze the #proteome of tumor cells - in other words, the totality of all proteins produced by #cancer cells. He now wants to develop this method further in the #MSTARS project.
