Recognizing Membrane Changes Using Neutrons
Jülich, 28 November 2017 – Drugs can alter the structure of cell membranes, which can affect their effectiveness or cause undesirable side effects. The structural changes in cell membranes caused by drugs have not yet been sufficiently investigated. Researchers from Jülich, Garching (near Munich), Georgia, and France want to change this: they have developed a new method in neutron research with which any deformation of the membranes can be detected faster and more easily than previous methods permitted.

Calibrating ozone sondes

In the beginning of November, climate researchers from all over the world met in Jülich to calibrate ozone sondes used in international ozone observation projects. In two video interveiws, Dr. Anne Thompson (NASA) and Dr. Hermann Smit (FZ Jülich) talk about the network Southern Hemisphere Additional Ozonesondes (SHADOZ) and how the calibrating of ozone sondes is done.
