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: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
