MDC Newsletter 04/2019: Kidneys, hearts, muscles

Fluconazole in rat kidney cells, AQP2 marked green

Dear Reader, 

Did you know that a fungicide could help the kidneys transport water? And that a missing enzyme can be responsible for unusual skin colouring? Find out more in this newsletter.  

You will also read how we want to understand the heart at the molecular level, how we gain muscle stem cells, and what two MDC researchers did on the stage of the Berliner Ensemble. 

We also congratulate our scientist Jens Reich on his 80th birthday. He is not only a molecular biologist and bioethicist, but was also one of the best known civil rights activists in the GDR. 

Have fun reading! And as always: Please, recommend us to others!
