  • DNA guardians out of control
    Researchers at the University of Bonn discover mechanism that leads to ANCA-associated vasculitis Our own immune system can become the enemy when mechanisms that are actually protective get out of control. In ANCA-associated vasculitis, excessive inflammatory reactions lead to pulmonary hemorrhages that can be fatal if left untreated. Researchers at the University of Bonn, together…
  • A new BONFOR Funding Instrument for Technology Development in Core Facilities
    The BONFOR Funding Instrument 9 (Technology Development in Core Facilities) is meant to ensure that the Core Facilities of the Medical Faculty can map state-of-the-art and innovative, novel methods. The innovations that are established within the framework of this project-related scientific work are then to be incorporated into the routine work of the Core Facility….

  • Covid-19: New energy for flagging immune cells
    Immune cells do not receive sufficient suitable energy carriers in infected individuals, a study reveals In severe Covid-19 patients, the metabolism produces insufficient amounts of certain energy-rich compounds called ketone bodies. However, these energy carriers are needed by two important cell types in the immune system in order to fight the virus effectively. Perhaps this…
