Getting prepared for the next outbreak

27.07.2012
3rd International Influenza Meeting in Münster, 2-4 September / New aspects of influenza research

The Research Network “FluResearchNet” and the National Research Platform for Zoonoses are pleased to announce the 3rd International Influenza Meeting 2012 which will be held from 2 - 4 September in Münster, Germany.

The conference will take place in the castle of Münster University and will be opened with a welcome note of the president of the Robert Koch Institute, Prof. Dr. Reinhard Burger. Under the topic “Getting prepared for the next outbreak”, the meeting offers the opportunity to exchange new data and aspects of influenza research in an international environment.

“We are very pleased to see many attendees from abroad this time. This shows the international attractiveness of the event” says Prof. Dr. Stephan Ludwig, virologist from Münster University and coordinator of the “FluResearchNet”, a network dedicated to research on the zoonosis influenza.

The meeting will provide a challenging scientific programme with plenary lectures and key-notes by invited speakers and selected oral and poster presentations. Invited speakers are Yoshihiro Kawaoka (Madison, USA), Jon McCullers (Memphis, USA), Joseph P. Mizgerd (Boston, USA), Juan Ortin (Madrid, Spain) und Ron Fouchier (Rotterdam, Netherlands).

Im Focus: Self-assembling nano inks form conductive and transparent grids during imprint

Transparent electronics devices are present in today’s thin film displays, solar cells, and touchscreens. The future will bring flexible versions of such devices. Their production requires printable materials that are transparent and remain highly conductive even when deformed. Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer.

To print the grids, an ink of gold nanowires is applied to a substrate. A structured stamp is pressed on the substrate and forces the ink into a pattern. “The...

Im Focus: The Glowing Brain

A new Fraunhofer MEVIS method conveys medical interrelationships quickly and intuitively with innovative visualization technology

On the monitor, a brain spins slowly and can be examined from every angle. Suddenly, some sections start glowing, first on the side and then the entire back of...

Im Focus: Newly discovered material property may lead to high temp superconductivity

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.

While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.

Im Focus: Mapping electromagnetic waveforms

Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.

Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...

Im Focus: Continental tug-of-war - until the rope snaps

Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases

Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
