Programme for the 3rd Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium is online
On October 24 and 25, 2008 the 3rd Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium will be held in Leipzig. The main themes are ischemia and regeneration. The preliminary programme is now available on http://www.fs-leipzig.com.
The symposium is organised and hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology. The six sessions concern regeneration in cardiac and cerebral ischemia.
The conference is particularly focused on stem cells and their use for ischemic diseases and other applications. The second day of the symposium concerns process development for cell-based therapies as well as monitoring and imaging of ischemic diseases. In addition to the 24 lectures conference participants have the possibility of meeting with the numerous industrial partners or browsing the poster exhibition in the light-flooded atrium of the newly opened Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology.
This year approximately 150-200 people are expected to take part in the symposium. Don't miss the opportunity to participate at this scientific event and meet interesting people from research, industry, university and clinic.
Further information as well as the registration form is available under: http://www.fs-leipzig.com.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
