Getting prepared for the next outbreak

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: Lactate for Brain Energy

Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.

In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...

Im Focus: Laser process simulation available as app for first time

In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.

Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
