Trust is one of the crucial foundations for the successful exchange and interplay of economic actors. Trust has a great influence on the intra-firm and inter-firm interaction of employees, management, customers and financiers, and hence on the efficiency and prosperity of the national economy.
In spite of the necessity of economic rules, regulations, compliance and contracts within firms, on the market and in the national economy, there can be no doubt that true efficiency and sustainability require trust. Our current economic and financial crisis demonstrates clearly how important trust is and which problems arise on the market and in the national economy if trust is violated or even lost.
We believe that trust has not been adequately discussed in the economic sciences and that the trust research in other scientific disciplines has not been sufficiently incorporated into economics. To remedy this problem, HHL – Leipzig Graduate School of Management and the Center for Advanced Studies in Management (CASiM) will organize a one-day scientific conference on the topic „The Role of Trust in Business Economics“ on June 28, 2012.

Abnormal scarring is a serious threat resulting in non-healing chronic wounds or fibrosis. Scars form when fibroblasts, a type of cell of connective tissue, reach wounded skin and deposit plugs of extracellular matrix. Until today, the question about the exact anatomical origin of these fibroblasts has not been answered. In order to find potential ways of influencing the scarring process, the team of Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, Group Leader for Regenerative Biology at the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease at Helmholtz Zentrum München, aimed to finally find an answer. As it was already known that all scars derive from a fibroblast lineage expressing the Engrailed-1 gene - a lineage not only present in skin, but also in fascia - the researchers intentionally tried to understand whether or not fascia might be the origin of fibroblasts.
