  • A team of researchers has made a significant advance in prime editing, the most versatile gene editing technology to date. They have developed a method for the targeted degradation of old DNA segments to make room for the insertion of new sequences. The illustration shows two hands and a drawn DNA double helix. One hand is erasing an old sequence, the other one is drawing the new one.

    Examining diabetes with a skin scanner and AI

    11 December 2023 | Changes in small blood vessels are a common consequence of diabetes development. Researchers at TUM and Helmholtz Munich have now developed a method that can be used to measure these microvascular changes in the skin – and thus assess the severity of the disease. To achieve this, they combine AI and innovative high-resolution optoacoustic imaging technology.
