Andreas von Deimling mit dem International Prize for Translational Neuroscience ausgezeichnet

VondeimlingDer Neuropathologe Andreas von Deimling, Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum und Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg, erhält gemeinsam mit dem Neuroonkologen Hai Yan von der Duke University den International Prize for Translational Neuroscience der Gertrud Reemtsma Stiftung. Andreas von Deimling hat einen Antiköper entwickelt, der an mutierte IDH1-Proteine bindet, die charakteristisch für bestimmte Hirntumoren sind. Damit wurde die Klassifizierung dieser Tumoren auf Molekülebene möglich, die heute weltweit eingesetzt wird.

Andreas von Deimling untersucht die Pathologie und Molekulargenetik von Tumoren des zentralen und peripheren Nervensystems. Er arbeitet auf dem Gebiet der Tumordiagnostik und entwickelt neue Testverfahren für die Einteilung und Klassifizierung von Gehirntumoren. Beispiele hierfür sind Antikörper, die hochspezifisch auf krebstypisch veränderte Proteine reagieren. Damit lassen sich Unterformen von Gliomen und anderen Tumoren eindeutig diagnostizieren. Von Deimling ist außerdem an der Entwicklung eines neuen Diagnosesystems beteiligt, das auf DNA-Methylierung − einer chemischen Veränderung des Erbguts − beruht. Mit diesem Ansatz ist es möglich herauszufinden, aus welchem Zelltyp ein Tumor ursprünglich hervorgegangen ist, was für die Tumortherapie von Bedeutung ist. Mehr...Externer Inhalt


Fish Eyes from a Petri Dish

Heidelberg scientists create retina from stem cells of bony fish

A research team from the Centre for Organismal Studies (COS)Wittbrodt of Heidelberg University has demonstrated that complex retinal tissue can be cultured in a Petri dish from embryonic stem cells of bony fish. Until now, stem cells from mammals, including humans, have been used in organoid research. For the first time, researchers led by Prof. Dr Joachim Wittbrodt have demonstrated that stem cells from medaka and zebrafish can also form highly organised neural structures under controlled laboratory conditions. Among other things, the researchers expect to gain new insights into the basic mechanisms of retinal development. More...Externer Inhalt
