Innovations born within a chemistry lab

19.05.2014

Conference `From Graduation to Innovation´ at TU Chemnitz will be held on June 24, 2014 for junior scientists, professors and students in the field of chemistry and related disciplines

„Discoveries are made during inspiring moments in research and teaching. Such discoveries in the field of chemistry and their practical results are the focus of the conference entitled `From Graduation to Innovation´,“ says Prof. Dr. Heinrich Lang.

The event is hosted by his Professorship of Inorganic Chemistry at Technische Universität Chemnitz together with the local section in Chemnitz of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) and the Reaxys, Elsevier. On Tuesday, 24th June 2014, professors, research assistants, doctoral candidates and post-docs, as well as students are warmly invited to join the main lecture hall building of TU Chem-nitz.

From 1 until 6 pm in room N112 five English-language lectures are in the program list. The speakers include Prof. Dr. Martin Jansen (Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research), Prof. Dr. Maksym Kovalenko (ETH Zürich), Jun-Prof. Dr. Peter Wich (Universität Mainz), Dr. Ulrike Obst-Sander (Hoffmann-La Roche AG) and Prof. Dr. Nicholas J. Long (Imperial College London).

„The guest speakers will present current developments in the field of chemistry, which have been reflected in everyday applications. Moreover, they will talk about the personal and scientific backgrounds that made these inventions possible,“ says Prof. Lang.

Another highlight of the program is a Science Slam, where junior scientists have the opportunity to present their research and topics that inspire a wider audience. The application deadline is 1 June 2014. The five best submissions will be able to present their papers during the conference at 5:15 pm. The two winners will receive a MacBook Air or an iPad Air.

To the first conference in the series `From Graduation to Innovation´ last year more than 70 participants came together at Universität Frankfurt/Main. The second session takes place in Chemnitz and is addressed now to an explicitly larger target group – especially universities, colleges and research institutes in Central Germany and in border regions of the Czech Republic and Poland.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
