Stem cell researchers meet in Leipzig

14.09.2012
The 7th Annual Congress of the German Society for Stem Cell Research,associated this year with the Fraunhofer Life Science Symposium "Stem Cells and Clinical Applications", will take place from 29–30 November in Leipzig.
The Abstract Deadline has been extended until 24 September.

The annual meeting brings together participants with industrial, academic and clinical backgrounds, who discuss the latest news and achievements in stem cell research.

Until 24 September interested researchers are invited to submit abstracts and present their work on the following topics:

- Stem Cells for Immune / Autoimmune or Inflammatory Diseases
- Stem Cells for Neurological or Cardiovascular Diseases
- Stem Cells for Hematological or Oncological Diseases
- Stem Cells for Bone or Cartilage Diseases
- Stem Cell Differentiation
- Stem Cell Signalling
- Stem Cells for Tissue Engineering

Participants can expect the following confirmed speakers:

Francesco Dazzi (Imperial College of London, London, UK): Inflammation and stem cell differentiation

Karl-Heinz Krause (University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland): Stem-cell derived human in vitro and in vivo models: From disease-targeted drug development to toxicity testing

Katarina Le Blanc (Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska, Sweden): Mesenchymal stem cell treatment for inflammatory conditions

Anna Wobus (Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research, Gatersleben, Germany): Pluripotent stem cell research in Germany – A personal view on historical roots, present state and future challenges

Martin Zenke (RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany): Engineering stem cells

Im Focus: Advances in Molecular Electronics: Lights On – Molecule On

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the University of Konstanz are working on storing and processing information on the level of single molecules to create the smallest possible components that will combine autonomously to form a circuit. As recently reported in the academic journal Advanced Science, the researchers can switch on the current flow through a single molecule for the first time with the help of light.

Dr. Artur Erbe, physicist at the HZDR, is convinced that in the future molecular electronics will open the door for novel and increasingly smaller – while also...

Im Focus: Pruning of Blood Vessels: Cells Can Fuse With Themselves

Cells of the vascular system of vertebrates can fuse with themselves. This process, which occurs when a blood vessel is no longer necessary and pruned, has now been described on the cellular level by Prof. Markus Affolter from the Biozentrum of the University of Basel. The findings of this study have been published in the journal “PLoS Biology”.

The vascular system is the supply network of the human organism and delivers oxygen and nutrients to the last corners of the body. So far, research on the...

Im Focus: Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field

Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy

Im Focus: A “pin ball machine” for atoms and photons

A team of physicists from MPQ, Caltech, and ICFO proposes the combination of nano-photonics with ultracold atoms for simulating quantum many-body systems and creating new states of matter.

Ultracold atoms in the so-called optical lattices, that are generated by crosswise superposition of laser beams, have been proven to be one of the most...

Im Focus: UV light robot to clean hospital rooms could help stop spread of 'superbugs'

Can a robot clean a hospital room just as well as a person?

According to new research out of the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, that is indeed the case. Chetan Jinadatha, M.D., M.P.H., assistant...
