The Research Network “FluResearchNet” and the National Research Platform for Zoonoses are pleased to announce the 3rd International Influenza Meeting 2012 which will be held from 2 - 4 September in Münster, Germany.
The conference will take place in the castle of Münster University and will be opened with a welcome note of the president of the Robert Koch Institute, Prof. Dr. Reinhard Burger. Under the topic “Getting prepared for the next outbreak”, the meeting offers the opportunity to exchange new data and aspects of influenza research in an international environment.
“We are very pleased to see many attendees from abroad this time. This shows the international attractiveness of the event” says Prof. Dr. Stephan Ludwig, virologist from Münster University and coordinator of the “FluResearchNet”, a network dedicated to research on the zoonosis influenza.
The meeting will provide a challenging scientific programme with plenary lectures and key-notes by invited speakers and selected oral and poster presentations. Invited speakers are Yoshihiro Kawaoka (Madison, USA), Jon McCullers (Memphis, USA), Joseph P. Mizgerd (Boston, USA), Juan Ortin (Madrid, Spain) und Ron Fouchier (Rotterdam, Netherlands).

This morning at 05:45 CEST, the earth trembled beneath the Okhotsk Sea in the Pacific Northwest. The quake, with a magnitude of 8.2, took place at an exceptional depth of 605 kilometers.
Because of the great depth of the earthquake a tsunami is not expected and there should also be no major damage due to shaking.

The Ring Nebula's distinctive shape makes it a popular illustration for astronomy books. But new observations by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope of the glowing gas shroud around an old, dying, sun-like star reveal a new twist.
"The nebula is not like a bagel, but rather, it's like a jelly doughnut, because it's filled with material in the middle," said C. Robert O'Dell of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
He leads a research team that used Hubble and several ground-based telescopes to obtain the best view yet of ...
New indicator molecules visualise the activation of auto-aggressive T cells in the body as never before
Biological processes are generally based on events at the molecular and cellular level. To understand what happens in the course of infections, diseases or normal bodily functions, scientists would need to examine individual cells and their activity directly in the tissue.

A fried breakfast food popular in Spain provided the inspiration for the development of doughnut-shaped droplets that may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
The doughnut-shaped droplets, a shape known as toroidal, are formed from two dissimilar liquids using a simple rotating stage and an injection needle. About a millimeter in overall size, the droplets are produced individually, their shapes maintained by a surrounding springy material made of polymers.
Droplets in this toroidal shape made ...
