Hans-Robert Metelmann, Professor at Greifswald University, Chairman of ScanBalt, says “Prevention is a pillar of health care. Effective cancer prevention is a task between life sciences, humanities, social sciences, politics and public-private collaboration on drug development.
In ScanBalt BioRegion, the established platform for cross-border collaboration, we have a unique tool to effectively improve health. We will now explore the possibilities to establish concrete projects and involve key stakeholders from research, politics, and education, industry and opinion makers. It is the aim to make cancer prevention an integral component of the social and personal behaviour around the Baltic Sea Region”.
Collaboration on cancer in ScanBalt BioRegion is also expected to be an important theme for ScanBalt Academy. ScanBalt Academy is a group of distinguished and prominent life scientists from academia as well as industry and government. The vision is to promote research quality in ScanBalt BioRegion, to Identify and promote fields of research where collaborative trans-national public-private efforts in ScanBalt BioRegion can become global leaders and to be ambassadors with the purpose of attracting human, financial and industrial resources.
The inauguration assembly of the Academy will take place in Schwerin/Germany, ScanBalt House, 12th of March 2008. The assembly will be hosted by the Minister President of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Dr. Harald Ringstorff.

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...
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...
