Integrating Transplantation research in Europe : Recent Advances and Future Challenges

17.10.2008
Over the last two years the TRIE initiative, supported by the European Commission, has mobilised stakeholders in Europe’s academic, industrial and patient communities : TRIE aims to define a common approach to respond to important questions that cannot be addressed independently but require scale of research across multiple centres and countries.

The priorities of TRIE are focused in themes common to cell and solid organ transplantation for which integration is critical and which will add value to the development of novel clinical therapies.

On November the 3rd 2008, a high level meeting presenting the conclusions and future concrete actions emerging from TRIE (Transplantation Research Integration across Europe) will take place in Brussels with the participation of Janez Potocnik, John Bowis and Philippe Busquin.

On this occasion we have the pleasure to invite you to a Press Lunch from 12.30 to 14.30 which will be introduced by Philippe Busquin.

During this lunch, Charles Kessler, EU scientific officer, will present an overview of scientific projects launched by the European Commission on Transplantation Immunology.

Prominent stakeholders will explain the advancement of projects integrated in the European Sixth Framework Programme:

•ALLOSTEM is dedicated to the development of new technologies in the field of stem cell transplantation and their clinical applications for the treatment of leukaemia and cancer (http://www.allostem.org/ ), by Pr. Alejandro Madrigal.

•RISET focuses on the establishment of tolerance, defined as the permanent acceptance of the transplant in absence of continuous immunosuppression, and on the translation of the advances in this field into clinical practice and industrial development (http://www.risetfp6.org), by Pr. Michel Goldman.

•XENOME aims to generate the necessary data to allow xenotransplantation to progress towards its initial clinical phase as recent scientific developments indicate that transplantation of organs, tissues or cells between species may become a realistic option resulting in an increased supply of organs (http://www.xenome.eu/), by Pr. Jean-Paul Soulillou.

•TRIE, Transplantation research integration across Europe (http://www.transplantation-research.eu), by Pr. Kathryn Wood.

Furthermore, the participation of Noela and Dimitri Nakos from the Melina Nakos Foundation will allow to get onto the expectations of the patient community.

This press lunch will be held at La Bibliothèque Solvay, Leopold Park, Rue Belliard 137, 1040 Brussels.

Please confirm your participation to this Press Lunch to Audrey Binet by email : abinet@ulb.ac.be

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
