Physical and mental exercise is not only beneficial for your own brain, but can also affect the learning ability of future offspring – at least in mice. DZNE researchers report these findings in the journal “Cell Reports”.
Markus Zweckstetter from the Goettingen site of the DZNE has been awarded an “Advanced Grant” from the European Research Council. He will explore new techniques on sub-nanometer level to analyze non-membrane organelles.
The DZNE is just starting the operation of a new high-performance computer. It should significantly accelerate the evaluation of biomedical data and thus lead to faster progress in dementia research. For this the computer uses the principles of "Memory-Driven Computing".
The science minister of Baden-Wuerttemberg Theresia Bauer and Bärbel Brumme-Bothe, head of the department for life sciences at the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research have given the start signal for Ulm as a further site of the DZNE.
