In this DW Documentary about “Mental health and resilience – the secrets of inner strength”, LIR scientists get to the bottom of current questions about stress and resilience. Find out more about our DynaMORE project from interviewee Prof. Kalisch and the BEWARE project by Prof. Wessa, and let Prof. Müller explain to you what we humans can learn from resilient mice. The video was previously produced by ARTE for German (DE) and French (FR) television but has now been made internationally accessible in the form of this YouTube documentary in English (EN).
Lots of work went into this new DynaMORE article by Sophie Bögemann et al. (2023)! The longitudinal study about the association between psychological resilience factors (RFs) with stressor reactivity (SR) during the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe confirmed the importance of positive appraisal (PA) in resilience and identified other RFs that prospectively predict stress resilience.

The 9th International Symposium on Resilience Research (#resilience2023) has left us all with memorable impressions, lots of new scientific ideas, and the joy of sunshine in Germany in late September! The symposium took place from 27-29 September 2023 in Mainz and covered the latest developments and breakthroughs within the field of stress resilience. Highlights were, again, outstanding talks and speakers, an interesting poster session, and our very own DynaMORE member Sophie Bögemann winning a poster award. So well deserved!
From 3-7 July 2023, participants from 19 different countries and 5 different continents came together in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, for a summer school entitled “Stress & Cognition: From Basic Mechanisms to Psychopathology”. The 5-day event was hosted by Radboud University and Radboud University Medical Center and co-organized by DynaMORE.
Kölle Alaaf – The 6th DynaMORE General Assembly (GA) Meeting in scenic Cologne, Germany, from 29-31 March 2023 was a great success, with nearly 30 delegates discussing scientific progress and reaching important decisions. We also welcomed a few new faces to the team, including a new project manager. Many thanks to Dr. Sara Stöber for five years of spot-on management and welcome, Sonja Leissner (also from concentris), who will lead the project to the finish line together with our scientific coordinator, Prof. Raffael Kalisch (LIR).
