World Conference on Regenerative Medicine in Leipzig

23.02.2011
About 1,000 international experts and visitors are expected in Leipzig for the World Conference on Regenerative Medicine, taking place from November 2nd to 4th, 2011. Online registration for anyone interested is now open at www.wcrm-leipzig.com.

Regenerative medicine has been gaining ground. Numerous technological applications have emerged in recent years for different indications. About 1,000 international participants representing the fields of basic research, application-oriented and clinical research as well as industry will discuss new findings in an interdisciplinary dialogue.

This biannual event is one of the largest of its kind in Europe and is unique for its wide variety of topics and its interdisciplinary approach. Abstracts for oral and poster presentations can be submitted until July 15th at the conference webpage (www.wcrm-leipzig.com).

The main topics of the conference are new stem-cell technologies, tissue engineering, biomaterials, diagnostics and the molecular basis of regeneration. A more detailed focus has been placed on regenerative therapies for neurological, cardiologic, oncologic and autoimmune diseases.

Bone, cartilage and skin defects are a special focus of tissue replacement. Moreover, the event aims to foster dialogue between researchers, clinicians and business representatives. The conference program therefore includes sessions on regulatory, economic and ethical aspects of regenerative medicine.

A new focus at this year’s conference is promoting the next generation of scientists. Special sessions have been reserved for young scientists and PhD students to present their work to an international audience. The “PhD sessions“ will be chaired by renowned scientists who will share their knowledge and offer new impulses.A discount student rate and travel grants for out-of-town participants round off the WRM’s young scientists program.

In addition to the scientific program, the event will serve as a platform for informal exchanges and networking. A many-sided supporting program with an opening get-together, a poster party and an evening event at the Leipzig Zoo’s newly opened “Gondwanaland,” Europe’s largest indoor tropical rainforest, offers participants the possibility to network with their colleagues in science and business.

The World Conference on Regenerative Medicine is organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology (IZI) and the Translational Center for Regenerative Medicine (TRM) at Leipzig University.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
