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: Production of an AIDS vaccine in algae

Today, plants and microorganisms are heavily used for the production of medicinal products. The production of biopharmaceuticals in plants, also referred to as “Molecular Pharming”, represents a continuously growing field of plant biotechnology. Preferred host organisms include yeast and crop plants, such as maize and potato – plants with high demands. With the help of a special algal strain, the research team of Prof. Ralph Bock at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam strives to develop a more efficient and resource-saving system for the production of medicines and vaccines. They tested its practicality by synthesizing a component of a potential AIDS vaccine.

The use of plants and microorganisms to produce pharmaceuticals is nothing new. In 1982, bacteria were genetically modified to produce human insulin, a drug...

Im Focus: The most accurate optical single-ion clock worldwide

Atomic clock experts from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) are the first research group in the world to have built an optical single-ion clock which attains an accuracy which had only been predicted theoretically so far. Their optical ytterbium clock achieved a relative systematic measurement uncertainty of 3 E-18. The results have been published in the current issue of the scientific journal "Physical Review Letters".

Im Focus: Goodbye ground control: autonomous nanosatellites

The University of Würzburg has two new space projects in the pipeline which are concerned with the observation of planets and autonomous fault correction aboard satellites. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy funds the projects with around 1.6 million euros.

Im Focus: Flow phenomena on solid surfaces: Physicists highlight key role played by boundary layer velocity

Physicists from Saarland University and the ESPCI in Paris have shown how liquids on solid surfaces can be made to slide over the surface a bit like a bobsleigh on ice. The key is to apply a coating at the boundary between the liquid and the surface that induces the liquid to slip. This results in an increase in the average flow velocity of the liquid and its throughput. This was demonstrated by studying the behaviour of droplets on surfaces with different coatings as they evolved into the equilibrium state. The results could prove useful in optimizing industrial processes, such as the extrusion of plastics.

The study has been published in the respected academic journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).

Im Focus: New study: How stable is the West Antarctic Ice Sheet?

Exceeding critical temperature limits in the Southern Ocean may cause the collapse of ice sheets and a sharp rise in sea levels

A future warming of the Southern Ocean caused by rising greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere may severely disrupt the stability of the West...
