Where is genetic information translated into proteins within a cell? In order to find more precise answers to this question, biologists and chemists at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence are visualizing a biomolecule in cells – mRNA – which plays a decisive role for all functions of the cell.


When do filopodia grow in neurones?

Trauma surgeon Prof. Richard Stange investigates how bones heal. As the new Professor of Translational Regenerative Medicine at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence, he combines basic research with clinical work. His aim is that research results should always benefit the patient as far as possible.
