North European Life Science Summit in Schwerin

16.02.2007
Co-operation partnering for pharmaceutical development at international level

Under the auspices of the North European biotechnology-initiative ScanBalt the Life Science networks Medicon Valley Academy Kopenhagen/Lund, NORGENTA Hamburg/Schleswig-Holstein and BioCon Valley Mecklenburg-Vorpommern invite to the workshop "Innovative Medicines - Collaboration in Northern Europe",Thursday, 22nd February 2007, 04:00 p.m. at the "Ritterstuben" (Ritterstraße 3, Ministry of Finance) in Schwerin.

It is objective of the event, to inform about the central European "Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI)" for competitive pharmaceutical development as well as the special devoted funding in the frame of EU-FP7 and to mobilize partners for a co-operation. The event is devoted to interested scientists from academia and industry.

The overall objective of IMI is to remove bottlenecks hampering the efficiency of the development of new medicines, and where research is the key, thereby enabling the European biopharmeceutical industry to become world leaders. At the same time, by pooling resources from all stakeholders (industry, academia, SMEs, regulatory authorities, healthcare providers, patient organisations), this initiative is expected to provide faster access to better medicines for European citizens. The proposed EC contribution to the IMI JTI will be 1 billion € for the period of FP7 (2007-2013).

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Topological material switched off and on for the first time

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
