Mystery of an enigmatic impression in the braincase solved

Since several decades an enigmatic impression in the braincase of the forerunners of mammals caused palaeontologists headache. Recently, Michael Laaß could clarify the possible function of this chamber by means of neutron tomography at the instrument ANTARES. [more]


Two MLZ scientists re-elected in committee research with neutrons

They have received by far the most votes from all candidates and are represented again in the "Komitee Forschung mit Neutronen": Dr. Astrid Schneidewind from the Jülich Centre for Neutron Science, and Dr. Wiebke Lohstroh from the Technical University of Munich. The two instrument scientists at the Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum have...[more]


Neutrons make hydrogen atoms visible

Once again, the instrument BioDiff at the MLZ has located with highest accuracy hydrogen atoms of various inhibitors when binding to the enzyme trypsin. The results, which are important for the prediction of binding properties of new substances in drug research, have now been published in the journal Angewandte Chemie.[more]
