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.

World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
Just in time for Christmas, a Mars-analogue mission in Morocco, coordinated by the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) as part of the SRC project FACILITATORS, has been successfully completed. SRC, the Strategic Research Cluster on Space Robotics Technologies, is a program of the European Union to support research and development in space technologies. From mid-November to mid-December 2018, a team of more than 30 scientists from 11 countries tested technologies for future exploration of Mars and Moon in the desert of the Maghreb state.
Close to the border with Algeria, the Erfoud region in Morocco – known to tourists for its impressive sand dunes – offered ideal conditions for the four-week...
