Scientific Highlights of the 3rd Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium

Scientific Highlights of the 3rd Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium

Only few weeks until the start of the 3rd Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium in Leipzig. On October 24 and 25, 2008 researchers and industrial partners will meet in Leipzig to discuss their latest findings in the fields of ischemia and regeneration.

Speakers from Germany, France, USA and Israel will present their findings. A major theme is the role of stem cell therapy in ischemic diseases. Two sessions address this cutting-edge issue. Keynote lectures come from Prof. Bodo Eckehard-Strauer who will speak about the potential of bone marrow cells as a therapy for heart failure.

Prof. Jürgen Hescheler will as well focus on cardiac stem cell therapy especially in regards to clinical indication for cell therapy and long term outcomes. In addition to cardiac ischemia, cerebral ischemia is a serious and widespread disease in industrial nations. Dr. Brigitte Onteniente from Paris will give a lecture about the potential of human embryonic stem cells in stroke.

Altogether, the two days offer 24 high-level lectures in 6 sessions, over 30 scientific posters as well as 17 industrial exhibitors in the new and modern building of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology in Leipzig.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
