The immune system of every human being may have up to several hundred thousand different T cells that vary from each other by virtue of their receptors. This enormous diversity is the basis of the body's powerful immune defenses. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center and the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg have developed a sequencing method with which they can precisely analyze the human T cell receptor repertoire. This makes it possible to study how the immune system responds to disease. READ MORE

Professor Michael Boutros ist kürzlich vom Kuratorium des DKFZ als kommissarischer wissenschaftlicher Vorstand des Deutschen Krebsforschungszentrums (DKFZ) bestätigt worden. Er übernimmt damit vorübergehend die Nachfolge von Professor Otmar D. Wiestler, der zum 1. September 2015 als Präsident der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft nach Berlin wechselt. Boutros wird das DKFZ gemeinsam mit dem Kaufmännischen Vorstand Professor Josef Puchta leiten. READ MORE

Citric acid may prevent the highly contagious norovirus from infecting humans, scientists discovered from the German Cancer Research Center. Therefore, lemon juice could be a potentially safe and practical disinfectant against the most common pathogen of severe gastrointestinal infections. READ MORE
