New Cancer Targets, New Therapeutics and Clinical Trials
Merging technological innovations and new knowledge about basic cancer biology, cancer researchers now target specific molecules involved in critical chemical...
Research will be reported at TCT 2007, the annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF), that demonstrates that early intervention saves lives in women who have a heart attack or unstable chest pain.
Responding to media reports of recent studies that emphasized the dangers of angioplasty in women compared to men, Dr. Alexandra J. Lansky, MD, Director of the...
The mounting challenges implied by the lack of talents to safeguard continued economic growth in the Baltic Sea Region is the overriding theme when top politicians, high ranking business leaders, experts and academia meet at Baltic Development Forum Summit 4-6 November.
The quest for talents will be viewed from various angles such as how to boost entrepreneurship and innovation. Furthermore how to tackle the environmental and...
G 8 experts and their African counterparts convene for two days in Germany, Oct. 18-19, to map out specific ways to meet agreed commitments to foster better economic and social conditions in Africa through science and technology (S&T).
The meeting advances the initiatives pledged in the declarations of the Gleneagles and Heiligendamm G 8 summits, supporting a strong commitment towards...
On 18-19 October in Paris, CIRCE, the biggest research project about Mediterranean climate, will involve stakeholders to address research and debate adaptation strategies to global warming. Main issues to cope with will be impacts on agriculture and rural development, energy, tourism, coastal and terrestrial ecosystems, urban and regional planning.
As stated by Norwegian Nobel Prize committee in awarding Nobel Prize 2007 for Peace to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al)...
From October, 17 to 20, 2007 the World Congress on Regenerative Medicine (WCRM) is taking place in Leipzig. For the third time top-level international scientists will present their latest findings in the trade fair city of Leipzig.
"We are very glad that we have succeeded in finding a common platform for the presentation of the novel themes within Regenerative Medicine at the World...
Today, society is seeking ways of dealing with an ageing population, degenerative diseases such as cancer and arthritis, the problems of increased cardiovascular and other life style diseases such as diabetes.
Alongside this is the need to eradicate malaria, tuberculosis and Aids, and other ‘plagues’ of the 21st century. Other crises revolve around the shortage of...

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...
International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems
Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
