Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Wiener Quantenforscher der ÖAW realisierten in Zusammenarbeit mit dem AIT erstmals ein quantenphysikalisch verschlüsseltes Netzwerk zwischen vier aktiven Teilnehmern. Diesen wissenschaftlichen Durchbruch würdigt das Fachjournal „Nature“ nun mit einer Cover-Story.

Im Focus: Tödliche Kombination: Medikamenten-Cocktail dreht Krebszellen den Saft ab

Zusammen mit einem Blutdrucksenker hemmt ein häufig verwendetes Diabetes-Medikament gezielt das Krebswachstum – dies haben Forschende am Biozentrum der Universität Basel vor zwei Jahren entdeckt. In einer Folgestudie, die kürzlich in «Cell Reports» veröffentlicht wurde, berichten die Wissenschaftler nun, dass dieser Medikamenten-Cocktail die Energieversorgung von Krebszellen kappt und sie dadurch abtötet.

Das oft verschriebene Diabetes-Medikament Metformin senkt nicht nur den Blutzuckerspiegel, sondern hat auch eine krebshemmende Wirkung. Jedoch ist die gängige...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
