Stem cell researchers meet in Leipzig for the third time

17.10.2007
From October, 17 to 20, 2007 the World Congress on Regenerative Medicine (WCRM) is taking place in Leipzig. For the third time top-level international scientists will present their latest findings in the trade fair city of Leipzig.

"We are very glad that we have succeeded in finding a common platform for the presentation of the novel themes within Regenerative Medicine at the World Congress in Leipzig and can therefore give the visitors and exhibitors a broad basis for interdisciplinary exchange", said Professor Frank Emmrich, Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology (IZI), which is organizing the event.

The promise of stem cell therapy for organ renewal and regeneration represents the hope of modern medicine for the treatment and prevention of terminal and chronic diseases. Regenerative Medicine engages in the research of stem cells, their potential for healing and the development of innovative diagnostic and therapy methods. The scientific presentations will give the latest updates, for example on the role of stem cells for the therapy of cardiac infarction, stroke or diabetes. Within the program, topics such as bone marrow and fat for the regeneration of a wide variety of tissues will be covered. Furthermore issues in novel biomaterials, skin and tissue regeneration as well as tissue engineering and imaging will be presented.

To the top class speakers belong the spanish Minister of Health Bernat Soria, Yann Barrandon (Lausanne), Eva Sykova (Prag), Dietmar Hutmacher (Singapur), Rao Mahendra (USA), Chris Mason (London), Herman Waldmann (Oxford) as well as Oliver Brüstle (Bonn) and Jürgen Hescheler (Köln).

For the first time the congress is accompanied by a large-scale industry exhibition, that allows a direct exchange between representatives of science and economy. "The enormous presence of industry clarifies the growing relevance of Regenerative Medicine for the economy as well as the business location Germany." mentions Dr. Wilhelm Gerdes, Fraunhofer IZI. Approximately 60 exhibitors from 20 countries are going to be represented on the industry exhibition. The main sponsor of the WCRM is the company PluriStem from Israel.

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
