01. Dec 2016

Image: news/dfg-award-1-.png

As the German Research Foundation (DFG) announced today, Goethe University (GU) is one of the winners of the 2016 Competition for International Research Marketing Ideas. The awarded concept “Let’s talk about UBAUT” was initiated by SFB 1177 on Autophagy (http://www.sfb1177.de), LOEWE Ub-Net (LINK TO http://www.proloewe.de/ubnet) and IBC2, and in collaboration with GU’s Departments for Internationalization and Marketing and Communication. The prize is awarded with 100,000 €, enabling the ubiquitin and autophagy networks now to implement a wide range of marketing measures for increasing their international visibility and attract highly qualified international colleagues to the Rhine Main biomedical research area. The program follows a ‘bottom-up’ approach which will be driven by LOEWE Ub-Net and SFB 1177 scientists. It comprises ambassador visits to renowned research institutions in the US as well as short stipends for international scientists wishing to pursue a career in Germany and a strategy outreach meeting.

Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2016 for autophagy researcher: Congratulations to Yoshinori Ohsumi

03. Oct 2016


The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet decided today that the 2016 Prize is awarded to Yoshinori Ohsumi for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy. The Japanese scientist is considered as the founding father of autophagy research: He identified the first autophagy genes in yeast, elucidated the underlying mechanisms and showed that a similar sophisticated machinery exists in human cells. Ohsumi holds a professorship at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan. He is the only Laureate receiving the prize this year, underlining the significance and breakthrough character of his discoveries. The announcement came as fantastic news for the entire field of autophagy research, and the SFB 1177 consortium sends sincerest congratulations to Yoshinori Ohsumi.

SFB 1177 practical course on autophagy

01. Aug 2016

Image: news/2-1-.jpeg Image: news/1-1-.jpeg

The practical course on autophagy, organized by SFB 1177 group leaders Christian Behrends and Christian Pohl, conveyed hands-on experience in autophagy research. In five days, the participants employed biochemical and cell biological assays to study the autophagy pathway and expanded their knowledge on model organisms such as C. elegans as well as on technologies like mass spectrometry and gene editing with CRISPR/Cas9. Daily lectures by senior scientists and group leaders complemented the practical focus of the workshop. By presenting their own preliminary data, both PhD students and Postdocs gained valuable insights into the currently running projects within SFB 1177, sowing the seeds for new collaborations amongst the members of the SFB graduate school. Thanks to all participants for creating a highly supportive and interactive atmosphere fostering the exchange of many experiences and advices!

Frankfurt Conference on Ubiquitin and Autophagy – thanks to all speakers and participants

08. Jul 2016

From July 4th to 7th, 2016, leading experts in Ubiquitin and Autophagy research from around the world were brought together at Goethe University’s Medical Campus for the first Frankfurt Conference on Ubiquitin and Autophagy, jointly organized by the Cluster of Excellence Macromolecular Complexes, the DKTK site Frankfurt/Mainz, the LOEWE program Ub-Net and SFB 1177. Since the ubiquitin system and autophagy are essential for maintaining cellular integrity and homeostasis, and defects in the two quality control systems are involved in the pathogenesis of numerous diseases, the meeting put emphasis on gaining a more global view on cellular quality control mechanisms, their interconnectivities as well as on exploiting the potential for therapeutic interventions. More than 300 scientists from 12 countries attended the meeting and almost 50 talks in five interdisciplinary sessions covered a broad range of topics from the discovery of basic molecular mechanisms to translation into clinical applications. Moreover, the contribution by early career researchers in vivid discussions and more than 110 poster presentations was overwhelming, as was the quality of the work presented. Coffee breaks, welcome reception and a farewell barbecue at Goethe University’s Westend Campus with a view on the impressive Frankfurt skyline fostered the exchange and interaction amongst the participants giving rise to new ideas, collaborations and insights. The organizers would like to thank all speakers and participants for their active and valuable contribution to the meeting and look forward to the next Frankfurt Conference in 2018.

Interested in Alzheimer’s - register here: "Beyond Amyloid - Widening the View on Alzheimer's Disease“

01. Jul 2016


Herrenhausen Symposium, October 10 & 11 in Hanover, Germany. 
Hosted as a Herrenhausen Symposium by the Volkswagen Foundation the meeting aims at bringing together current knowledge on molecular and cellular processes that contribute to AD pathogenesis beyond the so far dominating amyloid hypothesis and at fostering discussion on future perspectives in AD research. Topics to be covered include inflammation, vascular dysfunction, mitochondrial integrity, cell cycle events, lipid metabolism, tau biochemistry, protein misfolding and autophagy. There are no fees to attend the symposium but registration is required.
