Outstanding results in MRI technology by Hungarian researchers

Today, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the most versatile and most dynamically developing imaging technique in medicine. Besides its clinical use, MRI plays a crucial role in research in the structure and functions of the human brain with non-invasive technology. Consequently, the development of MRI technology and the widening of the scope of this method is method is of primary importance in the field of R&D.

Hungarian scientist’s fuzzy protein theory becomes part of United States curriculum

Having discovered fuzzy structured protein complexes, Mónika Fuxreiter, Head of the MTA-DE Protein Dynamics Research Group, described a new comprehensive protein model with the creation of the theory of fuzzy structured proteins. The online lecture presenting this theory was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education; thus it can be included in the official curriculum of any university in the United States. The researcher, supported by the Lendület (Momentum) Program of the Academy, works at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Debrecen, Hungary.
