   Mechanisms behind antibiotic resistance captured on video for the first timeMechanisms behind antibiotic resistance captured on video for the first time
 
In a world-first, scientists have established the cause of antibiotic-resistance in bacteria, capturing video footage showing that bacteria have the ability to change their form in order to avoid detection by antibiotics. This contradicts existing beliefs around how bacteria can survive without a cell wall. Known as L-form switching, this ability to evade antibiotics poses a significant threat to global health.
 
 Scientists discover T cell homing beacons for lungs
 
Scientists discover T cell homing beacons for lungsScientists have identified a pair of molecules critical for T cells, part of the immune system, to travel to and populate the lungs. A potential application could be strengthening vaccines against respiratory pathogens such as influenza.
 
 
 Scientists move one step closer to discovering the causes of immune diseases
 
Scientists move one step closer to discovering the causes of immune diseasesScientists are one step closer to discovering the causes of immune diseases such as asthma, multiple sclerosis and arthritis. Research from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, GSK and Biogen, under the Open Targets initiative, has shown that thousands of differences in DNA between individuals, associated with immune diseases, are linked with the switching-on of a specific subtype of immune cells.
 
 
 Researchers map and activate bacterial 'immune defense system'
 
Researchers map and activate bacterial 'immune defense system'With the aid of highly advanced microscopes and synchrotron sources, researchers from the University of Copenhagen have gained seminal insight into how bacteria function as defense mechanisms against attacks from other bacteria and viruses.
 
 
 TUM researchers reveal how chaperones detect immature immune signaling proteins
 
TUM researchers reveal how chaperones detect immature immune signaling proteinsThe cells of our immune system constantly communicate with one another by exchanging complex protein molecules. A team led by researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now revealed how dedicated cellular control proteins, referred to as chaperones, detect immature immune signaling proteins and prevent them from leaving the cell.
