Daniel Anderson from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at the 3rd World Congress on Regenerative Medicine

11.10.2007
With only few days left until the 3rd World Congress on Regenerative Medicine (WCRM) in the Congress Centre in the city of Leipzig, public interest turns towards the various themes surrounding regenerative medicine.

These topics include stem cell therapies for diverse diseases, new biomaterials, tissue engineering as well as regenerative medicine in veterinary medicine represented within the satellite event of the WCRM: the Fraunhofer Symposium. The main program is immediately available on the homepage http://www.regmed.org.

Approximately 700 participants from 33 countries from every continent have already registered. The online registration for this important event from October, 17 to 20, 2007 is still possible. Students obtain a special offer: For only 150 euros they can experience the scientific program for the entire three days. Day tickets are available from 80 euros.

On Saturday, October, 20, 2007 Daniel Anderson from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, (USA) will give an oral presentation. Anderson works as research associate at the Center for Cancer Research of MIT and is active in the well known biomedical engineering laboratory at MIT. The director of this lab is Prof. Robert Langer. He became famous through his revolutionary work in the field of cancer research and the new developed methods of drug administration to cancer patients.

In 1999 Forbes Magazine named him one of the 25 worldwide most important persons in the field of biotechnology. The laboratory works at the interface of biotechnology and material science. At the 3rd WCRM Anderson will, as representative of the Langer-Lab, speak about "Combinatorial development of biomaterials for tissue engineering and drug delivery".

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.

Im Focus: Modular OLED light strips

At the International Symposium on Automotive Lighting 2019 (ISAL) in Darmstadt from September 23 to 25, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, will present OLED light strips of any length with additional functionalities for the first time at booth no. 37.

Almost everyone is familiar with light strips for interior design. LED strips are available by the metre in DIY stores around the corner and are just as often...

Im Focus: The working of a molecular string phone

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Potsdam (both in Germany) and the University of Toronto (Canada) have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. Surprisingly, the communication between the protein units is accomplished via a water-network akin to a string telephone. This communication is aligned with a ‘breathing’ motion, that is the expansion and contraction of the protein.

This time-lapse sequence of structures reveals dynamic motions as a fundamental element in the molecular foundations of biology.
