DFG To Set Up 14 New Collaborative Research Centres

in a cell dysfunction and thus cause diseases; this is why their study is of particular interest to basic medical science. Against the backdrop of clinically relevant disease models such as cancer, atherosclerosis, psoriasis or multiple sclerosis which are the result of dysregulated or defective signal pathways the new collaborative research centre to be set up at Kiel University will explore the "Specificity and pathophysiology of signal transduction pathways".

Even though the incidence of pancreatic diseases is increasing, there has been no possibility to date to manage and influence the chronic inflammatory process and stop the development of fibrosis resulting in severe chronic pain, pancreatic insufficiency and secondary diabetes mellitus. At the same time, chronic pancreatitis constitutes a cancer risk. This is why scientists at the collaborative research centre "Inflammation, regeneration and transformation of the pancreas " at Ulm University plan to investigate the mechanisms of inflammation, monitor repair and regeneration processes in changed pancreatic tissue and focus on the complex molecular mechanisms of pancreatic carcinoma. This may provide the basis for a potential immunotherapy.

Natural sciences

Non-linear processes are common in nature and technology, but are mainly related to lowdimensional systems. There is still a considerable need for research into real - typically highdimensional - systems. The collaborative research centre "Complex non-linear processes. Analysis - simulation - control - optimisation" to be set up at Berlin's Humboldt University will focus on the analysis of space-time structures from the perspectives of theoretical and experimental physics as well as applied mathematics, e.g. with regard to processes in many-particle systems, in chemically reactive systems, especially in surfaces or in dynamic structures in semiconductors. The scientists intend to identify commonalities and explore to what extent these
