Scientifc awards for doctoral thesis on heart and lung research more

Didier Stainier receives 2.5 million euros from the European Research Council more

We are taking the World Day of Laboratory Animal as an opportunity to provide information on this topic. This is a controversial topic on which we would like to let the Institute's employees who work closest to the animals - our veterinarians and animal care staff - have their say. more

Congratuations to Maria Elisa Almeida Góes (Dept. Braun) for being the winner of the first internal contest for the best scientific image. The internal contest was organized by the PhD Committee of our institute. Contributions were voluntary. It is intended to bring more communication between the departments and scientific and non-scientific members of stuff, further gives more visibility to our scientific work. more

Number of macrophages in tumor tissue enables prognosis of lung tumor progression more

Often lung cancer ends fatally. A major reason for this is that the tumour frequently is being detected at an advanced stage only. Furthermore, the effectiveness of modern therapies, such as the immune therapy, is limited as well. Scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim and the Justus Liebig University in Giessen proved that a certain group of leukocytes, so-called tumour-associated macrophages, play an essential role during the formation of metastases. The hereby involved molecular regulatory cascade might be a target for future therapeutic measures. more
