Magnetic material attracts attention for cancer therapy
An extraordinary self-regulating heating effect that can be achieved in a particular type of magnetic material may open the doors to a new strategy for hyperthermia cancer treatment, researchers say. "This strong, self-regulated heating effect is unmatched by other materials," an investigator said. "It opens a novel design strategy for realising in vivo hyperthermia therapy."

Semi-artificial chloroplasts to manufacture biotechnologically relevant products
(Ruhr-University Bochum) An international research team wants to create semi-artificial chloroplasts for the manufacture of biotechnologically relevant products. For this purpose, they aim to modify the photosynthetic process of natural chloroplasts. The EU is funding the undertaking with 1.2 million euros for the time period of three years, as part of 'ERASynBio,' an initiative striving to promote synthetic biology in Europe. Prof Dr Thomas Happe from the Ruhr-Universitšt Bochum is coordinating the 'Sun2Chem' project.
