Ebola-Medikation – Möglich, aber umstritten

RSS RWTH Aachen - 24.10.2014

Bereits über zweitausend Todesopfer hat das Ebola-Virus, das in 80 Prozent der Fälle tödlich verläuft, laut WHO in Afrika bereits gefordert. Nun droht zudem eine weltweite Ausbreitung. Aber es existiert ein experimentelles Medikament, das vom Fraunhofer-Institut für Molekularbiologie und Angewandte Ökologie an der RWTH als einziger Einrichtung in Europa hergestellt werden könnte. Allerdings ist das Medikament noch nicht freigegeben.

Flu viruses disguised as waste

RSS ETH Zurich - 23.10.2014
Viruses cannot multiply without cellular machinery. Although extensive research into how pathogens invade cells has been conducted for a number of viruses, we do not fully understand how the shell of a virus is cracked open during the onset of infection thus releasing the viral genome. An ETH Zurich led research team discovered how this mechanism works for the influenza virus – with surprising results.

Quality of university campuses is crucial for Europe

The quality of university campuses has to be an essential part of the EU strategy for growth in the next few decades. That is the view of Alexandra den Heijer and George Tzovlas of TU Delft in their book, ‘The European campus – heritage and challenges’. The authors assert that the quality of European universities and their campuses are crucially important for education, research, and innovation, and for policies relating to these areas. Such quality also has an impact on the global ‘battle for...
