Stem cell researchers meet in Leipzig

14.09.2012
The 7th Annual Congress of the German Society for Stem Cell Research,associated this year with the Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium "Stem Cells and Clinical Applications", will take place from 29–30 November in Leipzig.
The Abstract Deadline has been extended until 24 September.

The annual meeting brings together participants with industrial, academic and clinical backgrounds, who discuss the latest news and achievements in stem cell research.

Until 24 September interested researchers are invited to submit abstracts and present their work on the following topics:

- Stem Cells for Immune / Autoimmune or Inflammatory Diseases
- Stem Cells for Neurological or Cardiovascular Diseases
- Stem Cells for Hematological or Oncological Diseases
- Stem Cells for Bone or Cartilage Diseases
- Stem Cell Differentiation
- Stem Cell Signalling
- Stem Cells for Tissue Engineering

Participants can expect the following confirmed speakers:

Francesco Dazzi (Imperial College of London, London, UK): Inflammation and stem cell differentiation

Karl-Heinz Krause (University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland): Stem-cell derived human in vitro and in vivo models: From disease-targeted drug development to toxicity testing

Katarina Le Blanc (Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska, Sweden): Mesenchymal stem cell treatment for inflammatory conditions

Anna Wobus (Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research, Gatersleben, Germany): Pluripotent stem cell research in Germany – A personal view on historical roots, present state and future challenges

Martin Zenke (RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany): Engineering stem cells

Im Focus: First-Ever 3D Printed Excavator Project Advances Large-Scale Additive Manufacturing R&D

Heavy construction machinery is the focus of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s latest advance in additive manufacturing research. With industry partners and university students, ORNL researchers are designing and producing the world’s first 3D printed excavator, a prototype that will leverage large-scale AM technologies and explore the feasibility of printing with metal alloys.

Increasing the size and speed of metal-based 3D printing techniques, using low-cost alloys like steel and aluminum, could create new industrial applications...

Im Focus: New welding process joins dissimilar sheets better

Friction stir welding is a still-young and thus often unfamiliar pressure welding process for joining flat components and semi-finished components made of light metals.
Scientists at the University of Stuttgart have now developed two new process variants that will considerably expand the areas of application for friction stir welding.
Technologie-Lizenz-Büro (TLB) GmbH supports the University of Stuttgart in patenting and marketing its innovations.

Im Focus: First quantum photonic circuit with electrically driven light source

Optical quantum computers can revolutionize computer technology. A team of researchers led by scientists from Münster University and KIT now succeeded in putting a quantum optical experimental set-up onto a chip. In doing so, they have met one of the requirements for making it possible to use photonic circuits for optical quantum computers.

Optical quantum computers are what people are pinning their hopes on for tomorrow’s computer technology – whether for tap-proof data encryption, ultrafast...

Im Focus: OLED microdisplays in data glasses for improved human-machine interaction

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.

“Augmented-reality” and “wearables” have become terms we encounter almost daily. Both can make daily life a little simpler and provide valuable assistance for...

Im Focus: Artificial Intelligence Helps in the Discovery of New Materials

With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

Elpasolite is a glassy, transparent, shiny and soft mineral with a cubic crystal structure. First discovered in El Paso County (Colorado, USA), it can also be...
