In an Open Innovation project unique to Europe, dubbed ''Tell us!', the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft has brought patients, family members and healthcare professionals into the effort of generating research questions.

On the 20th of October the LBG presented two new Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes (LBI). Both LBI are the result of the fourth call for proposals for the formation of new institutes.

The following scientists were able to convince the international experts of their research programme during the ambitious peer review process: Dr. Kaan Boztug, LBI for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases and Dr. Markus Mitterhauser, LBI for Applied Diagnostics.

We wish both directors and their teams best of luck for their future work!

Results of the Online-Vote

The community of “Tell us!” has taken a decision: Psychotropic drugs, mental resilience and health care structures are the three most important issues for future research in the field of mental health.

A particular human gene variant makes breast cancer cells more aggressive. Not only are these more resistant to chemotherapy but also leave the primary tumour and establish themselves in other parts of the body in the form of metastases.
