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: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
