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: Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Im Focus: X-rays and electrons join forces to map catalytic reactions in real-time

New technique combines electron microscopy and synchrotron X-rays to track chemical reactions under real operating conditions

A new technique pioneered at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory reveals atomic-scale changes during catalytic reactions in real...

Im Focus: Iron: A biological element?

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
