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: Surfing a wake of light

Researchers observe and control light wakes for the first time

When a duck paddles across a pond or a supersonic plane flies through the sky, it leaves a wake in its path. Wakes occur whenever something is traveling...

Im Focus: Light-induced Magnetic Waves in Materials Engineered at the Atomic Scale

Researchers explore ultrafast control of magnetism across interfaces: A new study discovers how the sudden excitation of lattice vibrations in a crystal can trigger a change of the magnetic properties of an atomically-thin layer that lies on its surface.

A research team, led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter at CFEL in Hamburg, the University of Oxford, and the...

Im Focus: Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Im Focus: X-rays and electrons join forces to map catalytic reactions in real-time

New technique combines electron microscopy and synchrotron X-rays to track chemical reactions under real operating conditions

A new technique pioneered at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory reveals atomic-scale changes during catalytic reactions in real...

Im Focus: Iron: A biological element?

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
