Public Release: 19-Jan-2018
Can stem cell exosome therapy reduce fatal heart disease in diabetes?
Removal of dead or dying heart muscle cells after a heart attack is crucial. Researchers have preliminary data that diabetes impairs this removal, and this impairment may be the reason diabetes increases the risk for cardiovascular disease, including heart failure. With aid of a new grant, investigators will study whether mesenchymal stem cells or their exosomes can boost dead cell removal and reduce damaging inflammation after heart attacks in animal models of diabetes.

Dr. Dobryakova of Kessler Foundation researches effect of feedback on cognitive fatigue
Ekaterina Dobryakova, Ph.D., research scientist in Traumatic Brain Injury Research at Kessler Foundation, received an award from the New Jersey Health Foundation to study how performance feedback influences cognitive fatigue levels in individuals with TBI. The goal is to see whether a behavioral intervention that is based on providing performance feedback can effectively reduce levels of cognitive fatigue, a finding that would have implications for individuals with other types of neurological conditions who are affected by disabling fatigue.

Scientists open window into psychotic mind
Why do some people who are diagnosed with schizophrenia experience psychosis, a disconnection from reality that can make them believe their actions are being controlled by aliens or the government? Michigan State University scientists will use a $1.5 million, four-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate and potentially identify the brain mechanisms related to this peculiar behavior.

Research into terahertz signals and friction-optimized metals
At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Professor Christian Koos combines photonic and electronic methods to generate terahertz signals and to make them usable for data transmission and measurements. Dr. Christian Greiner studies the behavior of metals in friction contacts in order to reduce friction and wear and, thus, decrease the consumption of energy and raw materials. The European Research Council (ERC) has now decided to award Consolidator Grants to both scientists.

European Capitals of Culture: Building bridges or a marketing ploy?
Can international cultural initiatives such as the EU programme 'European Capitals of Culture' create a counter-balance to the much-cited political crisis in the European Union, giving citizens a shared feeling of belonging to Europe? Or are they being used as a marketing ploy aimed at promoting tourism? In a new project researchers at FAU are following the debates being held in German cities in their bid to be named capital of culture in 2025.
