She has now been awarded an ERC Starting Grant, which will help her to start her own group and fund her work to the tune of €1.55 million over five years. Press Release No. 30 June 21, 2019 Berlin Straight to the heart An international team of researchers are seeking to explore the heart at a depth that was previously impossible. They have now received a grant of nearly four million US dollars from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative – as one of the 38 Seed Networks working on the Human Cell Atlas. MDC researcher Norbert Hübner is co-coordinator of the project. Press Release No. 25 May 30, 2019 Berlin Unknown mini-proteins in the heart A team led by Professor Norbert Hübner’s MDC research group has observed the human heart cells’ “protein factories” in action, examining the entire tissue for the very first time. In an article published in Cell, the group reveals their surprising discoveries and the possibilities they contain for the future treatment of heart disease. Press Release No. 18 May 03, 2019 Berlin First “wave” of the German National Cohort is completed In late April, the Berlin-North study center at the MDC welcomed its 10,000th subject in the GNC health study. This completes the first round of baseline examinations. Press Release No. 17 April 26, 2019 Berlin Unlocking the secrets of heart cells A heart seems to be pure physics: valves open and close, blood flows, electrical impulses control the heartbeat. A German-British research team is now looking at it in a different way. It will break down the heart into its smallest components - the cells - and unlock their secrets. The project is now being funded with 2.5 million euros for three years. Press Release No. 14 June 04, 2018 Berlin Polarised cells give the heart its fully developed form MDC researchers have described how the heart forms itself into a its characteristic S-shape and how the ventricles and atria finally develop. Their findings will help to better understand congenital heart diseases. Press Release No. 26 November 15, 2017 Berlin Gut bacteria are sensitive to salt Common salt reduces the number of certain lactic acid bacteria in the gut of mice and humans according to a study published in Nature by Berlin’s Max Delbrück Center and Charité. This has an impact on immune cells which are partly responsible for autoimmune diseases and hypertension. Probiotics ameliorate the symptoms of disease in mice. Press Release No. 21 September 24, 2017 Berlin Study of transplanted hearts reveals risk gene for cardiovascular disease In the largest transcriptome study to date, an international research team analysed the RNA of transplanted hearts and discovered a number of new risk factors for dilated cardiomyopathy and other heart conditions which could thus be recognised more easily in future.
