A protein indicating higher breast cancer mortality risk
With the support of the FWF, an oncologist found a biomarker for breast cancer having a poor prognosis and developed two viable methods to detect it in tissue samples. Breast cancer is the most frequent malignant tumour in women worldwide. In Austria, about 5,500 women develop it each year and 1,500 die of it despite the availability of an early detection programme. When a lump is found in a breast, the next step in clinical practice is a biopsy. Although no remedy exists for the anxious hours faced by the affected women, quick diagnostic procedures and competent information about the results are very helpful. The tissue sample taken is most important for diagnosis and treatment. If the tumour is found to be malignant, the subtype is determined immediately, since, depending on the result, different treatment methods are chosen. “After consultation by the interdisciplinary tumour board, the doctors discuss available treatment ...

The Viennese culture of vituperation
With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the German studies scholar Oksana Havryliv is investigating the phenomenon of verbal aggression among the Viennese population. Across all social strata and at every age, people vociferate and use swearwords mainly to relieve stress. For the first time, the scientist has also asked those involved about their reactions. Tailgating, cutting off, braking abruptly. – In traffic, we encounter annoying situations every day. In order to vent one’s anger, sounding off helps, and it is all the easier when one is driving alone. „Verbal aggression is actually most frequently found among people driving cars“, confirms Oksana Havryliv from the University of Vienna. At 68 percent, this indirect form of ranting, where there is no direct listener, is the most frequent way of verbally letting off steam. This form also encompasses aggressive thoughts, in such cases where for example direct tirades could have ...

Unintentional aesthetics
Konrad Frey was a pioneer who designed and built solar houses based on data and scientific insights. Yet Frey and his work are largely unknown. A project by the architectural theoretician Anselm Wagner aims to change that with the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF. „The architectural designs of Konrad Frey are characterised by the fact that their form is a consequence of function“, says the Graz-based art historian and architectural theoretician Anselm Wagner. But there is more to the designs of this architect who was born in Vienna in 1934 and later worked in Graz and London – they represent solar-house architecture in the best sense of the term. As early as 1972, Konrad Frey designed Austria’s first solar house together with Florian Beigel. The design was based on his scientific research into the use of solar energy as of the late 1960s. There can be no doubt ...

Women’s voices against prejudice under the monarchy
They were born in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, migrated, wrote manifold texts going against the grain of mainstream society in the 19th and early 20th centuries and have been widely ignored by literary history: with the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the German studies scholar Alexandra Millner researched migrant women writers and assembled them in a database. In the Habsburg Monarchy, it was uncommon for women to get or actively seek good education, become writers and find a readership for their works. It came as a surprise therefore when Alexandra Millner from the University of Vienna found a considerable number of women writers, no longer known today, who were extremely productive during the time of the Dual Monarchy in a project Millner conducted with the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF. These women had experienced migration, frequently wrote against the grain of mainstream society and sometimes enjoyed a ...

From spectacle to trauma alleviation
Voodoo rituals are more than mere show. As Yvonne Schaffler was able to demonstrate with the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, such rituals fulfil important social and therapeutic functions. As a cultural and social anthropologist, she studied practices relating to possession by spirits in the Caribbean. Voodoo means deity or spirit. – Voodoo practitioners in the Dominican Republic usually speak of ‚misterios‘. People possessed by such beings are at the heart of the voodoo religion. Under the influence of Hollywood clichés, one associates voodoo with mysterious rites and horror stories. But many religions include the concept of being possessed by spirits in various ways to this day. The difference lies in how religions deal with this phenomenon. Whereas Christian and Muslim priests seek to banish possessing spirits, voodoo is about accepting them and integrating them into everyday life. „Many voodoo centres are reminiscent of Catholic chapels: numerous images ...

Simplifying the Analysis of Analog Signals
New software with preset measurements according to ISO, NFC Forum, and EMVCo norms requires only minimal training effort COMPRION has launched a new postprocessing software for easily visualizing, measuring, analyzing, and sharing analog signals. As the only software of its kind, COMPRION has integrated so-called quick measurements. Instead of configuring measurements manually, the user can analyze the analog signals with preset configurations compliant to EMVCo, NFC Forum, and ISO. Quick measurements are usually only available as part of complex test tools with an integrated oscilloscope. Now the feature comes as a stand-alone software solution. “Thus, there is no need for spending a lot of time learning. Pretty much everyone can do the analysis with minimal training effort,” points out Swantje Missfeldt, Product Manager at COMPRION. Deviating analog signals often evoke communication failures. “Especially contactless transactions are error-prone to metallic parts disturbing the magnetic field or to suboptimal positions of antennas,” ...

The Alps between depopulation and gentrification
With the support of the FWF, a team from the University of Innsbruck investigated the influx of „new highlanders“ to the Alps. Although receiving little attention, migration from towns to mountainous areas is an observable trend worldwide, extending even to peripheral mountain villages. – In contrast to expectations, the new arrivals there are seen as creating fresh momentum. By now, a hefty share of the world’s population – more than 50 percent – lives in cities. Rural areas and mountain villages suffer from ageing populations, and formerly well-tended countryside becomes overgrown. A team headed by Ernst Steinicke from the Department of Geography at the University of Innsbruck has, however, registered a small but distinct reverse trend that started a few years ago. „Amenity migration“ is a notion the principal investigator first noticed in the Californian Sierra Nevada (USA). Amenity migrants are people who buy an out-of-town second home because they ...
