  • Geeks discourage women from studying Computer Science Expertise about stereotypes and role models affecting the occupational choice of women

    Why are women still underrepresented in STEM-study programmes, despite the fact that career opportunities for engineers, IT specialists and mathematicians are better than ever? Dr Yves Jeanrenaud, guest professor for gender studies at Ulm University, believes that stereotypes like the computer geek and the nerdy scientist keep young women from considering a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

    First COVID, then diabetes? Ulm study shows that SARS-CoV-2 also infects pancreas

    SARS-CoV-2 infects multiple organs. Severe presentations of COVID-19 not only affect the respiratory tract, the digestive tract and the cardiovascular and nervous system, but also glucose metabolism. Researchers at Ulm University Medical Center have now discovered that SARS-CoV-2 infects the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. This may explain the occurrence of diabetes-like symptoms in COVID-19 patients and the impairment of glucose metabolism in diabetic patients with COVID-19. The findings were published in the journal Nature Metabolism

    Mathematical study describes how metastasis starts

    A scientific study carried out by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) has produced a mathematical description of the way in which a tumor invades the epithelial cells and automatically quantifies the progression of the tumor and the remaining cell islands after its progression. The model developed by these researchers could be used to better understand the biophysical characteristics of the cells involved when developing new treatments for wound healing, organ regeneration, or cancer progression.
