The earliest predators appeared on Earth 480 million years ago – and they even had teeth which were capable of repairing themselves. A team of palaeontologists led by Bryan Shirley and Madleen Grohganz from the Chair for Palaeoenviromental Research at FAU have been able to discover more about how these organisms were able to grow and regenerate their teeth.

Researchers at FAU have discovered that proteins that were previously associated with longevity and anti-ageing also play an important role during the formation and positioning of synapses.

Nanoparticles are to be used like transporters to deliver medication in a targeted manner exactly where it is required in the human body? The nanoparticles should react to ultrasound frequencies. This is what FAU researchers are currently working on.
