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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
