Sitting innocently in prison is a nightmare - a doctor has now been awarded 1.2 million euros in compensation.
He had been acquitted because of the Göttingen organ donation scandal and should actually have received the payment from the state of Lower Saxony after a corresponding judgment last year. But the country appealed and failed again before the OLG (state court) Braunschweig.
In 2015, the former surgeon at the Göttingen University Hospital was acquitted of charges of 11 times attempted manslaughter and triple bodily harm resulting in death in a sensational nationwide trial.

After 6 months of #lockdown and #lab shutdown I spent a full day 9 am-8 pm in lab doing experiments! New #grad students in #lifesciences: There is always light 💡 and #fluorescent images at the end of the tunnel! Filing a #patent on my #invention from #phd work soon @OrganOnAChip
This is an Organ on a Chip platform that enables mimicking #tissues and #organs in a high throughput manner! The main focus will be towards developing #mucosal organs with tissue resident #immune cells and lining #epithelial cells for #testing #COVID19 treatments #covidvaccines
I recently gave a talk at #oooc2020 organized by @GVNlab at @Columbia. In the talk I demonstrated the #ease of fabrication, #functionality, and #modularity of this platform.
We’re open to #collaborate with interested #researchers! Interested to learn more:

And since then, it has grown within me – even possessing me at times!

Such is its sheer #Power!

3-Once there was a #King who couldn't sleep.

It's not uncommon for kings have so many things to worry about.

Most rulers even today will look for a woman, or a drink, or some amusement to divert themselves when they have #Insomnia. (3/16)

Important @jonykipnis statement 👉”Recent advances have directed our knowledge of the #immune system from a narrative of “self” versus “nonself” to one in which immune function is critical for #homeostasis of #organs throughout the body”:ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/30504… Image
IMO, this shift away from “self vs. non-self” extends to “#autoimmune” disease 👉 Here, I explain how “autoantibodies” in patients w/ #SLE, #MS etc are likely created in response to persistent #pathogens (and react w/ human tissue via molecular mimicry):discoverymedicine.com/Amy-D-Proal/20… Image
It follows that science + #medicine + #pharmaceutical companies must move towards a new #paradigm 👉 ...in which the human #immune response is no longer treated as the enemy, but is instead regarded as our strongest ally in maintaining #microbiome + system-wide #health.
