Laser Nanomedicine

The German Research Foundation (DFG) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) promote scientific exchange and joint research projects between the University of Lübeck and the Xiàn Jiaotong University in laser nanomedicine. They approved the application of Prof. Alfred Vogel from the Institute of Biomedical Optics at the University of Lübeck and Prof. Zhenxi Zhang from the School of Life Science and Technology at Xiàn Jiaotong University and are funding a three-year mobility project with 183,000 euros.

How does CO2 affect brain function?

Scientists led by the two Lübeck pharmacologists Dr. Jan Wenzel and Prof. Dr. Markus Schwaninger from the Institute of Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Lübeck, have dealt with this question. In a study that has just been published in the scientific journal "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)", they investigated the effect of an increased CO2 concentration on behaviour and respiration when the blood flow in the brain is disturbed.



Laser: LiDAR measurement technology

Prof. Dr. Sebastian Karpf from the Institute for Biomedical Optics (BMO) at the University of Lübeck has developed a novel system for LiDAR that enables fast spatial imaging in 3D. Very high speeds are achieved by using a new spectral-inertia-free scanning method. This work was done in cooperation with researchers of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Genetics of neurological movement disorders

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved funding for a project on the genetic research of neurological movement disorders with high-throughput sequencing at the University of Lübeck. The applicants are Prof. Dr. Katja Lohmann and Prof. Dr. Christine Klein from the Institute of Neurogenetics (Department of Neurology) and Prof. Dr. Hauke Busch from the Institute of Experimental Dermatology.

Award for young scientist from Lübeck

Dr. Jan Wenzel from the Institute for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Lübeck received the renowned Dieter Klaus Award of the German Society for Hypertension. He was honoured for a previously unpublished paper on secondary effects on the brain from vascular damage caused by high blood pressure, for example. The prize was awarded at the end of November during the annual congress of the German Hypertension League in Berlin.

Healthcare research: Is skin cancer screening effective?

In 2008, the national skin cancer screening was introduced for all persons over 35 years of age with statutory health insurance. However, it is still not clear whether the screening has the desired effects and how it works. This question is now being investigated by a team of scientists of the universities of Lübeck and Hamburg. The "Pertimo" project is being funded by the Innovation Committee of the Federal Joint Committee with around 516,000 euros for two years.

Better exchange between rescue service and clinic

The Institute of Medical Electrical Engineering at the University of Lübeck is involved in the national research project MOMENTUM. MOMENTUM stands for "Mobile medical technology for integrated emergency care and accident medicine". The project has been funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) since September 2019 for an initial three-year period with 6.6 million euros.

Effects of environmental factors during pregnancy on the offspring

At its last meeting, the German Research Foundation (DFG) approved a grant of 348,905 euros from Dr. Rebecca Ölkrug for the investigation of the influence of environmental factors during pregnancy on the metabolic parameters of the offspring.

Magnetic nanoparticles

The Institute of Medical Engineeringat the University of Lübeck is investigating a novel tracer-based imaging method for medicine that could revolutionize radiology. On 22 July 2019, a new publication appeared in the renowned scientific journal "Nature - Scientific Reports" in which it is shown for the first time how the contrasting magnetic nanoparticles used as tracers are produced in a chemical synthesis.

Lübeck Radiotherapy Department Starts Cooperation with Ottawa

The Departments for Radiotherapy in Lübeck and Ottawa, Canada, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding and agreed to collaborate in various academic fields. Prof. Dr. Dirk Rades, holder of the chair of radiotherapy at the University of Lübeck, visited the University Hospital in Ottawa in June together with the leading physicist Dr. Florian Cremers and the physician Dr. Liesa Dziggel.

Project to predict Parkinson’s disease using artificial intelligence

The Foundation (MJFF) for Parkinson’s Research (founded by the US actor of the same name known from movies such as “Back to the Future”) decided to fund a research project aimed at better prediction algorithms for Parkinson’s disease using artificial intelligence techniques. Read more...
