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: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
