Neuroscientists Discuss Latest Research Results in Potsdam

08.05.2012
Form 1 May to 5 May the “7th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair” took place in the Kongresshotel in Potsdam.
It was organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI, the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) and the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg.

Neurodegenerative diseases such as apoplectic stroke, Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s, which still lack treatment options, were scientific key aspects during the event.

Novel therapeutic and diagnostic approaches were discussed, especially possibilities of clinical applications. More than 40 of the world’s most renowned experts presented their research results and young scientists were given the opportunity to present their papers as well.

“From the beginning this dialogue between established scientists and young researchers was one of the event’s main objectives”, explains Prof. Dr. Georg Reiser, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, who initiated this conference together with Prof. Dr. Klaus Reymann (LIN) in 1996. “Special thanks go to the International Society of Neurochemistry (ISN) and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). Their financial support allowed young colleagues to participate, which enabled that kind of dialogue”, says Reymann.

“We are also very happy about the increasing international orientation”, as Dr. Dr. Johannes Boltze, department head at the Fraunhofer IZI, points out. More than 300 colleagues from 29 countries attended the event. In about 180 papers recent scientific findings of basic research as well as experiences of clinical applications were discussed.

The organizers hope the “8th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair”, taking place in May 2014 in Magdeburg, will continue this successful development. More information about this year’s event: www.neurorepair-2012.de

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
