The event is organised by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology, Leipzig, the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology, Magdeburg, and the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg.
The scientific focus lies on neurodegenerative diseases, such as stroke, Alzheimer, dementia and Parkinson, with high unmet medical needs.
In addition to findings of the molecular basis of the diseases, new therapeutic and diagnostic approaches will be introduced.
As the organisers at the Fraunhofer IZI are deeply involved in the transfer of research results into clinical use, this topic will be intensively debated.
About 400 international guests from research, clinical practice and industry are expected to attend the event in Magdeburg. The dialogue between prestigious scientists and young researchers will be especially promoted.
In a special session addressed to young scientists, Marc Fischer (»stroke«, editor in chief) and Ulrich Dirnagl (»Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism«, editor in chief) will talk about how to get research results published in highly rated journals.

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
