Research with Neutrons for Better mRNA Medicines

If not before, then certainly since the first messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines to combat the SARS CoV2 virus were approved in Germany, mRNA has become a recognized term even outside scientific circles. What is less well known is that mRNA can be used to produce much more than just vaccines. Scientists from the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, with the support of neutron researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich, have now discovered how the subcutaneous administration of mRNA can be improved.

Quantum Computing: “We Need to Develop Realistic Applications Now.”

Quantum computers could one day outperform today’s supercomputers to an extent that can only be imagined at present. Currently, important decisions are being taken regarding the development of this future technology. We discussed the latest developments with Frank Wilhelm-Mauch, who is coordinating construction at Forschungszentrum Jülich of the first freely programmable European quantum computer as part of the European flagship project OpenSuperQ.

Impacts of Coronavirus Lockdowns: New Study Collects Data on Pollutants in the Atmosphere

One consequence of the coronavirus pandemic has been global restrictions on mobility. This, in turn, has had an effect on pollution levels in the atmosphere. Researchers from across the world are using this unique opportunity to take measurements. An international team led by Forschungszentrum Jülich's Institute of Climate and Energy Research has now published a comprehensive review.
