Immune cells are constantly on the move to intercept pathogens. In the skin, these are especially so-called dendritic cells, which move through the cell layers much faster than other body cells. How the cells do this exactly has not been investigated so far. Biophysicists led by Professor Franziska Lautenschläger have now discovered how the movement
The automotive delegation of the Saarland made a strong appearance at the international motor show DIFA 2019 in Daegu, South Korea. INM was one of the exhibitors at the joint Saarland stand initiated by saaris – saarland.innovation&standort e.V. and GW Saar (Gesellschaft für Wirtschaftsförderung).
The INM awards two scholarships for a research internship in materials science at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). The internship will take place from June to August 2020 (9 weeks) as part of the ICMR Undergraduate Research Internship Program between the UCSB, Saarland University and the INM.
