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 : email@example.com

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.
Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...
Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
