More than 8,000 international scientists and clinicians will arrive in Montreal to share the latest advances in Immunology in the July heat. Researchers from 70 countries will arrive in the city on July 18 to attend the weeklong 12th International Congress of Immunology (ICI) and 4th Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) Meeting.
"There will be over 5,000 presentations including diverse topics such as, asthma, stem cell and bone marrow transplantation, vaccines, arthritis and new therapies for HIV," says Dr. Emil Skamene, Congress President. "The caliber of the presentations is outstanding and the number of delegates indicative of the high interest in this important area of science. The link between science and better treatments for many chronic diseases has been achieved by the integration of the ICI and FOCIS programmes - a historical first for these two organizations. This will prove to be an extremely exciting and informative conference."
"This is meeting is the world’s largest and most prestigious gathering of immunologists," says Dr. Marianna Newkirk, Congress Scientific Program Chair. "It is the first time these two groups of basic and clinical immunologists will meet in Montreal. The city has done an excellent job of accommodating the needs of this conference - a task only a few cities in Canada can accomplish. We are confident the delegates will have a successful and enjoyable time in Montreal."

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...

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...
