Handcrafted Langerhans Islets: New Hope for Type 1 Diabetes Patients?
People with type 1 diabetes must replace the job of an essential part of the pancreas – coming with many costs. Helmholtz Munich researchers like Henrik Semb want to help these patients: he is engineering artificial Langerhans islets, the part of the pancreas where insulin is produced.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly crucial in medical research, and Helmholtz Munich is one of the world's leading institutions in this field. It can detect tumors as effectively as severe eye diseases.
Outstanding scientists from all over the world come together at Helmholtz Munich's Pioneer Campus. They bring technologies and ideas that are ground-breaking - and thus open up entirely new perspectives for medical research.
During the Corona pandemic, experts from Helmholtz Munich helped to bring the situation under control as quickly as possible. Now they are preparing for the possibility of another pandemic: with new high-tech equipment and closely interlinked research strategies.
Translational Genomics is a research field with great promise for advancement: Analysis of genes can help in detecting diseases at an early stage as well as in determining new drug targets for therapy. Helmholtz Munich is particularly at the cutting edge in the use of these new methods.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the exceptional potential to improve human health: Advanced data analysis and machine learning methods developed by our experts are revolutionizing medical research, enabling early disease detection, personalized medicine, and improved patient outcomes.
The Women@HelmholtzMunich Month aims to raise awareness for women in science and science-related positions. We reach out to all Helmholtz Munich members: Empower women to encourage a respectful togetherness!
