Open call to the Second INFOBIOMED Training Challenge

08.03.2006


From 1st to 24th of March, 2006, the application forms to participate in the second INFOBIOMED Training Challenge will be opened. This is an innovative training experience organized by the Network of Excellence INFOBIOMED.



This training meeting, that will take place in Viladrau (Barcelona, Spain) from the 29th May to the 2nd of June 2006, will gather 2 groups of 5 students with different backgrounds (bioinformatics, medical informatics, biology, medicine, chemistry, etc.) who will be working together in a case study that can benefit from an integrative approach.

In doing so, the objective is to promote the exchange of views and the dialogue between disciplines. This is key for the future development of biomedical informatics, in the context of a specific research problem, to help focus the effort towards a tangible target.


Pharmainformatics will be the broad theme of this edition. Each student is required to submit a motivated case study upon application and among the case studies proposed, the organizing committee will select one case study per group, according to the potential it offers for cross-discipline approaches.

Students will be actually lodged in a hotel in Viladrau, 80 km away from Barcelona, so that they can ’live’ for a week on a research-driven environment and they can develop their interdisciplinary potential as much as possible. The student expenses will be covered by the INFOBIOMED project. Students coming from European organisations are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is 24th of March 2006.

The application form can be found in http://www.infobiomed.net/paginas_en/training_challenge_information_frame.htm

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
