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: Fast and Accurate 3-D Imaging Technique to Track Optically-Trapped Particles

KAIST researchers published an article on the development of a novel technique to precisely track the 3-D positions of optically-trapped particles having complicated geometry in high speed in the April 2015 issue of Optica.

Daejeon, Republic of Korea, April 23, 2015--Optical tweezers have been used as an invaluable tool for exerting micro-scale force on microscopic particles and...

Pocket sharks are among the world's rarest finds

A very small and rare species of shark is swimming its way through scientific literature. But don't worry, the chances of this inches-long vertebrate biting...

Im Focus: Drexel materials scientists putting a new spin on computing memory

Ever since computers have been small enough to be fixtures on desks and laps, their central processing has functioned something like an atomic Etch A Sketch, with electromagnetic fields pushing data bits into place to encode data.

Unfortunately, the same drawbacks and perils of the mechanical sketch board have been just as pervasive in computing: making a change often requires starting...

Im Focus: Exploding stars help to understand thunderclouds on Earth

How is lightning initiated in thunderclouds? This is difficult to answer - how do you measure electric fields inside large, dangerously charged clouds? It was discovered, more or less by coincidence, that cosmic rays provide suitable probes to measure electric fields within thunderclouds. This surprising finding is published in Physical Review Letters on April 24th. The measurements were performed with the LOFAR radio telescope located in the Netherlands.

How is lightning initiated in thunderclouds? This is difficult to answer - how do you measure electric fields inside large, dangerously charged clouds? It was...
