The award honors Beyreuther for the discovery of the nature of the amyloid protein, the key component of plaques found in brains of individuals suffering from Alzheimer's disease. The prize, endowed with 60,000 Euros, is donated by the Piepenbrock Group and recognizes outstanding scientific contributions towards the understanding, prevention and cure of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. The award is decided by an international scientific committee coordinated by the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE).
The award ceremony will take place at the scientific conference on "Ageing and Neurodegeneration" (Schloss Bensberg, Bergisch Gladbach). The guests will be welcomed by Olaf Piepenbrock, CEO and Chairman of Piepenbrock Group. Prof. Pierluigi Nicotera, Scientific Director of the DZNE, will give a tribute speech, the prize will be awarded by benefactress Maria-Theresia Piepenbrock.Background

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
