DFG establishes 8 new research units
Date:3/19/2013

The "Nature in the Designs of a Political Order: Ancient World Middle Ages Early Modern Age" Research Unit will examine how concepts of nature are illustrated and function in the founding of political orders and their claims to validity. The project is arranged over various epochs and cultures and combines perspectives from philosophy, theology, Latin studies, art history, history, the history of science, the history of law, politics and the study of literature. Its aim is to reshape conceptualisations of nature in its political and social dimension as a historic object.

(Spokespersons: Prof. Dr. Andreas Hfele and Prof. Dr. Beate Kellner, University of Munich)

The cyclic nucleotide guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) has an important role as a messenger in many biological systems such as blood vessels, the heart, neurones and sensory cells. The "cGMP Signaling in Cell Growth and Survival" Research Unit will use mouse models and cellular and molecular biological methods to examine the actual impact of faulty regulation in this messenger. To do this, fluorescence-based cGMP sensors will be developed and then used to illustrate the tiniest of changes in the messenger over space and time. As cGMP regulates essential processes such as ion transport in the kidneys and intestine, the function of muscles and sight cells, the research is also highly relevant to clinical practice.

(Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Robert Feil, University of Tbingen)

In addition to the eight newly established Research Units, another will now begin work. This Research Unit is funded jointly by the DFG, the Austrian Science Fund and the Swiss National Science Foundation. The DFG Senate had already approved the Research Unit in December 2012 and approval has now been obtained from the two other partner organisations.
