The Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize 2022 will be awarded to Katalin Karikó, Özlem Türeci and Uğur Şahin

The three award winners are being honoured for their achievements in the development of mRNA for preventive and therapeutic purposes

21-Sep-2021

Katalin Karikó, Özlem Türeci, and Uğur Şahin have established a technology platform that is likely to initiate a paradigm shift in some areas of medicine - away from the external application of immunising antigens or therapeutically effective proteins to their internal production within the cells ...

New substance classes for nanomaterials

Nano spheres and diamond slivers made of silicon and germanium

09-Sep-2021

Chemists at Goethe University Frankfurt have developed two new classes of materials in the field of nanomaterials and investigated them together with their cooperation partners at the University of Bonn: for the first time, they have succeeded in producing a nano sphere of silicon atoms and a ...

SARS-CoV-2: Achilles’ heel of viral RNA

Several small molecules identified that bind to certain areas of the SARS-CoV-2 genome that are almost never altered by mutations

22-Jul-2021

Certain regions of the SARS-CoV-2 genome might be a suitable target for future drugs. This is what researchers at Goethe University, together with their collaborators in the international COVID-19-NMR consortium, have now discovered. With the help of dedicated substance libraries, they have ...

Pharmaceutical research: when active substance and target protein “embrace” each other

29-Jan-2021

Scientists at Goethe University Frankfurt, together with colleagues from Darmstadt, Heidelberg, Oxford and Dundee (UK), have investigated how the fit of potent inhibitors to their binding sites can be optimised so that they engage longer with their target proteins. Long target residency has been ...

Folding of SARS-CoV2 genome reveals drug targets

Also preparation for “SARS-CoV3”

24-Nov-2020

For the first time, an international research alliance has observed the RNA folding structures of the SARS-CoV2 genome with which the virus controls the infection process. Since these structures are very similar among various beta corona viruses, the scientists not only laid the foundation for ...

Possible Achilles’ heel of SARS-CoV-2 virus identified

Anti-viral strategy with double effect

31-Jul-2020

When the SARS-CoV-2 virus penetrates human cells, it lets the human host cell produce proteins for it. One of these viral proteins, called PLpro, is essential for the replication and rapid spread of the virus. An international team of researchers led by Goethe University and University Hospital ...

How particulate matter arises from pollutant gases

International research project observes ultrafast particle growth through ammonia and nitric acid

15-May-2020

When winter smog takes over Asian mega-cities, more particulate matter is measured in the streets than expected. An international team, including researchers from Goethe University Frankfurt, as well as the universities in Vienna and Innsbruck, has now discovered that nitric acid and ammonia in ...

Toxin responsible for Legionella growth identified

24-Jul-2019

A team of scientists led by EMBL group leader Sagar Bhogaraju and Ivan Dikic of Goethe University, Frankfurt, discovered that the toxin SidJ in Legionella bacteria enforces a unique modification on human proteins and helps legionella grow inside human cells. SidJ hijacks human protein Calmodulin ...

Construction kit for custom-designed products

Biotechnologists develop robust and efficient methods for the production of new peptide drugs

13-Jun-2019

Microorganisms often assemble natural products similar to product assembly lines. Certain enzymes, non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS), play a key role in this process. Biotechnologists at Goethe University have now succeeded in changing these enzymes so that entirely new natural products, ...
