Germany's northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern expands its international contacts in the healthcare sector.
For this purpose the life sciences initiative of MV BioCon Valley® prepared a business atlas in which the competencies of the region in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the lifestyle disease Diabetes mellitus is combined.The atlas is published in English and Arabic language with profiles of companies, hospitals, universities and research institutes from MV. It was presented to the international public for the first time at the Arab health 2012 in Dubai.
Products and Services "Made in Germany" enjoy a high reputation there. In particular, the skills of the country in the field of diabetes treatment fits to the high demand in the Arab countries. According to the Ministry of Health in Dubai about a quarter of the adult indigenous population suffers diabetes, local doctors say even more than 50 percent.
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on the other hand has a more than 80-year tradition in diabetes research and treatment. As one of the first institutions worldwide a diabetes hospital was founded in 1930 on the island of Rügen. Today's competence centers in the country include e.g. the Heart and Diabetes Center Hospital of Karlsburg, the Institute for Diabetes "Gerald Katsch" e.V. in Karlsburg , the University of Rostock, the Infocom GmbH in Neubrandenburg, the EUROIMMUN Medical Laboratory Diagnostics AG, Lübeck / Dassow, or the Medigreif Island Hospital Heringsdorf.The production of the atlas was supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Construction and Tourism of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz (Germany) together with scientists from Dresden, Leipzig, Sofia (Bulgaria) and Madrid (Spain) have now developed and characterized a novel, metal-organic material which displays electrical properties mimicking those of highly crystalline silicon. The material which can easily be fabricated at room temperature could serve as a replacement for expensive conventional inorganic materials used in optoelectronics.
Silicon, a so called semiconductor, is currently widely employed for the development of components such as solar cells, LEDs or computer chips. High purity...
Augsburg chemists present a new technology for compressing, storing and transporting highly volatile gases in porous frameworks/New prospects for gas-powered vehicles
Storage of highly volatile gases has always been a major technological challenge, not least for use in the automotive sector, for, for example, methane or...
When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.
We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
