FAU researchers demonstrated the significant influence of new signal paths of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), which regulates blood pressure, on immune cells in experimental models of multiple sclerosis and arteriosclerosis.
FAU has amended its mission statement. In future it will include a passage which further sensitises researchers to the dual use of their results for beneficial and harmful purposes.
The emission of electrons from an illuminated material was a driving element in the development of quantum mechanics. FAU scientists have successfully controlled the photoemission of nanotransmitters to an extent never before achieved.
