A group of MDC researchers has now unveiled a new approach in Nature Immunology – one that seeks to increase treatment effectiveness by selectively targeting another type of immune cell called monocytes. Press Release No. 57 November 29, 2019 Berlin Käthe Beutler: "Do something!“ The Käthe-Beutler-Haus of the BIH is currently being built on the Berlin-Buch campus - the Medizinhistorische Journal now reports on the life of the Jewish paediatrician, researcher and mother. Press Release No. 38 August 05, 2019 Berlin Google Maps for tissues Modern light microscopic techniques provide extremely detailed insights into organs, but the terabytes of data they produce are usually nearly impossible to process. New software, developed by a team led by MDC scientist Dr. Stephan Preibisch and now presented in Nature Methods, is helping researchers make sense of these reams of data. Press Release No. 4 February 14, 2019 Berlin On the origin of B1 cells A new MDC study may resolve a decades-old debate in immunology: A team led by Prof. Klaus Rajewsky reports in Science that distinct progenitor cells are not required for the development of B1 cells. Instead, the team’s experiments show that a particular type of B-cell receptor can reprogram B2 cells into B1 cells, suggesting that B1 cells emerge as a consequence of their special B-cell receptors. Press Release No. 20 September 04, 2018 Berlin The brain’s tiny thrill-seekers Microglia, the immune cells of the central nervous system, differ in male and female mice. MDC researchers report on the sex-specific features in Cell Reports. Their findings could change how we treat neurological diseases. 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. 6 March 21, 2018 Berlin LifeTime – a visionary proposal for an EU Flagship Reliably predicting the onset and trajectory of a disease might seem like a distant dream. But a European consortium is aiming to achieve exactly this using a set of emerging technologies with the analysis of single cells at their core. 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.
