The world of quantum chemistry meets in Heidelberg


9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019)

The Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung organizes a major international conference in the field of physical chemistry in summer 2019, bringing together researchers from all over the world in Heidelberg.

Banner MQM

The 9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019) is expected to attract around 400 scientists and students from all over the world, as well as industry representatives who would like to know more out about the state of the art in quantum chemistry.

Therefore, special attention is paid to new methodological developments which open up future perspectives for chemistry and the related fields of biochemistry, pharmacy and material sciences.

The "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" conference series has been held every three years in various countries since 2001 and traditionally honors the scientific achievements of leading scientists in the field, most of whom were born in the host country.

The MQM 2019 in Germany will be held in honor of Prof. Werner Kutzelnigg, Prof. Wilfried Meyer and Prof. Sigrid Peyerimhoff, and in memory of Prof. Reinhart Ahlrichs.

All of these four outstanding scientists have made seminal contributions to the field of electronic structure theory, in particular to the understanding of electron correlation phenomena and in the development of new and powerful approximation methods in this area.

The conference focusses on theoretical chemistry, mainly wave function theory, and consists of around 60 lectures by internationally renowned researchers, two poster exhibitions, and four historical presentations.

Abstract submission and registration is open now until March 31st.

Im Focus: How do scars form? Fascia function as a repository of mobile scar tissue

Abnormal scarring is a serious threat resulting in non-healing chronic wounds or fibrosis. Scars form when fibroblasts, a type of cell of connective tissue, reach wounded skin and deposit plugs of extracellular matrix. Until today, the question about the exact anatomical origin of these fibroblasts has not been answered. In order to find potential ways of influencing the scarring process, the team of Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, Group Leader for Regenerative Biology at the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease at Helmholtz Zentrum München, aimed to finally find an answer. As it was already known that all scars derive from a fibroblast lineage expressing the Engrailed-1 gene - a lineage not only present in skin, but also in fascia - the researchers intentionally tried to understand whether or not fascia might be the origin of fibroblasts.
