In nature, there is a constant evolutionary battle between microbes and their hosts, during which, many bacteria secrete specific proteins into the host’s cells, aiming to alter its physiology, while increasing pestiferous activity.
As announced today in Brussels, Nektarios Tavernarakis, Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH), and Professor at the Medical School of the University of Crete, was unanimously elected Chair of the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT).
A team of scientists from the University of Minnesota Medical School, University of Texas Health San Antonio, and the Biomedical Research Institute of FORTH, found that the disruption of a circadian clock gene may be involved in the development of autism spectrum disorder.
Prof. Konstantinos Makris, Associated Researcher of IESL-FORTH, receives a Consolidator Award from the European Research Council (ERC)
K. Makris, Assistant Professor of the Department of Physics of the University of Crete and Associate Faculty Member of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of FORTH, was awarded a “Consolidator Grant” by the ERC.
Locked in an epic cosmic waltz 9 billion light-years away, two supermassive black holes appear to be orbiting around each other every two years.
FORTH researchers reveal how metabolic reprogramming in mitochondria promotes or undermines survival and longevity
The new findings of the study are published today in the premier international scientific journal Nature Communications.
Dr. Carolina Casadio, Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Astrophysics - FORTH, has been awarded a highly competitive European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant to study the nature of Dark Matter.
How does nature utilize the common repertoire of folds in proteins to differentiate their specificity, and ultimately their function? This long-standing and fundamental question was addressed in a study conducted at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Foundation for Research & Technology-Hellas (FORTH-IMBB).
IMBB researchers reveal that DNA damage in tissue-infiltrating macrophages triggers an exosome-based metabolic reprogramming leading to chronic inflammation.
Research carried out at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH, provides evidence that persistent DNA damage triggers an exosome-based, metabolic reprogramming that leads to chronic inflammation and tissue pathology in DNA repair-deficient progeroid syndromes and likely also during aging.
"Generation of optical Schrödinger “cat” states in intense laser-matter interactions" was published in Nature Physics.
In a theoretical and experimental study published in Nature Physics, an international team of researchers led by Prof. Maciej Lewenstein (ICFO -Spain) and Dr. Paraskevas Tzallas (FORTH-Greece), demonstrates the generation of highly non-classical states of light in intense laser–atom interactions.
