Center for the exchange of Physics and Medicine

Dear Sir or Madam,

Examples of applied physics can be found in every hospital, like diagnostic or imaging devices. But what would happen, if we would also take into account its theoretical aspects to investigate diseases? Not only would it be possible to describe the chemistry of diseases but also the forces involved. An interdisciplinary center in Erlangen will serve scientists from both disciplines as a platform for exchange in the future. Read more in our current interview.

I wish you a relaxing week!

Study offers new targets for drugs to treat fatty liver disease and liver cancer

There may be no silver bullet for treating liver cancer or fatty liver disease, but knowing the right targets will help science develop the most effective treatments. Researchers in Sweden have just identified a number of drug targets that can be used in the development of new efficient treatment strategies with minimum side effects.

Without any delay: drug dose adjustment at the point of care

Topic of the Month

Many therapeutic drugs are very powerful, but they are also very toxic at the same time. Thus, they have to be measured regularly, again and again, so that an adjustment of the individual drug dosage can be made. Until now, the "normal" way was to take the blood sample, send it to a central laboratory and get the results after some days. A new point-of-care test can measure it in 15 minutes.
