Neuroscientists Discuss Latest Research Results in Potsdam

08.05.2012
Form 1 May to 5 May the “7th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair” took place in the Kongresshotel in Potsdam.
It was organized by the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI, the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) and the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg.

Neurodegenerative diseases such as apoplectic stroke, Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s, which still lack treatment options, were scientific key aspects during the event.

Novel therapeutic and diagnostic approaches were discussed, especially possibilities of clinical applications. More than 40 of the world’s most renowned experts presented their research results and young scientists were given the opportunity to present their papers as well.

“From the beginning this dialogue between established scientists and young researchers was one of the event’s main objectives”, explains Prof. Dr. Georg Reiser, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, who initiated this conference together with Prof. Dr. Klaus Reymann (LIN) in 1996. “Special thanks go to the International Society of Neurochemistry (ISN) and the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO). Their financial support allowed young colleagues to participate, which enabled that kind of dialogue”, says Reymann.

“We are also very happy about the increasing international orientation”, as Dr. Dr. Johannes Boltze, department head at the Fraunhofer IZI, points out. More than 300 colleagues from 29 countries attended the event. In about 180 papers recent scientific findings of basic research as well as experiences of clinical applications were discussed.

The organizers hope the “8th International Symposium on Neuroprotection and Neurorepair”, taking place in May 2014 in Magdeburg, will continue this successful development. More information about this year’s event: www.neurorepair-2012.de

Im Focus: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....

Im Focus: The lightest electromagnetic shielding material in the world

Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.

Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

Im Focus: Gentle wall contact – the right scenario for a fusion power plant

Quasi-continuous power exhaust developed as a wall-friendly method on ASDEX Upgrade

A promising operating mode for the plasma of a future power plant has been developed at the ASDEX Upgrade fusion device at Max Planck Institute for Plasma...

Im Focus: AI monitoring of laser welding processes - X-ray vision and eavesdropping ensure quality

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.

Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
