Parkinson’s: Bend in Molecule Trans­forms Protein into Aggregation Inhibitor
28 July 2015 – Aggregates of the body’s own protein α-synuclein in the brain are believed to be a cause of Parkinson’s disease. Researchers at Jülich and Düsseldorf have observed how the protein loses its fatal tendency to aggregate when its molecular structure is altered at a critical site. The effect could provide a basis for new therapeutic approaches and help to explain the striking similiarities between various neuro­degenerative diseases.

Microswimmers – From Single Particle Motion to Collective Behaviour
The study of the mechanisms and dynamics of autonomous microswimmers is a fascinating field at the cutting edge of science. It combines the biophysics of self-propulsion via motor proteins, artificial propulsion mechanisms, swimming strategies at low Reynolds numbers, the hydrodynamic interaction of swimmers, and the collective motion of large numbers of agents.
