Newsletter 06/2016: Research, Prizes, Alumni

Dear reader,

Would you have guessed that the picture of a mouse embryo wins a beauty contest? The beauty contest we are talking about is the Best Scientific Images Contest on Campus Buch. This year’s winner photo is the picture you can see below, a mouse embryo with its nervous system glowing green.

This newsletter features news about SORLA: Vanessa Schmidt from Thomas Willnow’s group found out that this protein can be co-responsible for overweight. Another MDC study reveals new facts about preeclampsia.

We are happy to announce that MDC researcher Jan Philipp Juncker won this year’s ARCHES prize. And the MDC was awarded the audit berufundfamilie certificate for its family-friendly policies.

Be sure to check out our new „must reads“ article series about new studies, recommended by our scientists.
