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".

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...
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...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
