These topics include stem cell therapies for diverse diseases, new biomaterials, tissue engineering as well as regenerative medicine in veterinary medicine represented within the satellite event of the WCRM: the Fraunhofer Symposium. The main program is immediately available on the homepage http://www.regmed.org.
Approximately 700 participants from 33 countries from every continent have already registered. The online registration for this important event from October, 17 to 20, 2007 is still possible. Students obtain a special offer: For only 150 euros they can experience the scientific program for the entire three days. Day tickets are available from 80 euros.
On Saturday, October, 20, 2007 Daniel Anderson from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, (USA) will give an oral presentation. Anderson works as research associate at the Center for Cancer Research of MIT and is active in the well known biomedical engineering laboratory at MIT. The director of this lab is Prof. Robert Langer. He became famous through his revolutionary work in the field of cancer research and the new developed methods of drug administration to cancer patients.
In 1999 Forbes Magazine named him one of the 25 worldwide most important persons in the field of biotechnology. The laboratory works at the interface of biotechnology and material science. At the 3rd WCRM Anderson will, as representative of the Langer-Lab, speak about "Combinatorial development of biomaterials for tissue engineering and drug delivery".

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
