ScanBalt BioRegion to Collaborate on Cancer

23.11.2007
Up to forty three (43) percent of all cancer cases can be prevented by prevention programmes according to The World Health Organization (WHO). Thereby coordinated cross-border efforts have a significant potential for improving the health of the populations in the Baltic Sea Region.

Hans-Robert Metelmann, Professor at Greifswald University, Chairman of ScanBalt, says “Prevention is a pillar of health care. Effective cancer prevention is a task between life sciences, humanities, social sciences, politics and public-private collaboration on drug development.

In ScanBalt BioRegion, the established platform for cross-border collaboration, we have a unique tool to effectively improve health. We will now explore the possibilities to establish concrete projects and involve key stakeholders from research, politics, and education, industry and opinion makers. It is the aim to make cancer prevention an integral component of the social and personal behaviour around the Baltic Sea Region”.

Collaboration on cancer in ScanBalt BioRegion is also expected to be an important theme for ScanBalt Academy. ScanBalt Academy is a group of distinguished and prominent life scientists from academia as well as industry and government. The vision is to promote research quality in ScanBalt BioRegion, to Identify and promote fields of research where collaborative trans-national public-private efforts in ScanBalt BioRegion can become global leaders and to be ambassadors with the purpose of attracting human, financial and industrial resources.

The inauguration assembly of the Academy will take place in Schwerin/Germany, ScanBalt House, 12th of March 2008. The assembly will be hosted by the Minister President of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Dr. Harald Ringstorff.

Im Focus: ScanCut project completed: laser cutting enables more intricate plug connector designs

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have come up with a striking new addition to contact stamping technologies in the ERDF research project ScanCut. In collaboration with industry partners from North Rhine-Westphalia, the Aachen-based team of researchers developed a hybrid manufacturing process for the laser cutting of thin-walled metal strips. This new process makes it possible to fabricate even the tiniest details of contact parts in an eco-friendly, high-precision and efficient manner.

Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors...

Im Focus: New Strategy Against Osteoporosis

An international research team has found a new approach that may be able to reduce bone loss in osteoporosis and maintain bone health.

Osteoporosis is the most common age-related bone disease which affects hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. It is estimated that one in three women...

Im Focus: TU Graz Researchers synthesize nanoparticles tailored for special applications

“Core-shell” clusters pave the way for new efficient nanomaterials that make catalysts, magnetic and laser sensors or measuring devices for detecting electromagnetic radiation more efficient.

Whether in innovative high-tech materials, more powerful computer chips, pharmaceuticals or in the field of renewable energies, nanoparticles – smallest...

Im Focus: Tailored light inspired by nature

An international research team with Prof. Cornelia Denz from the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Münster develop for the first time light fields using caustics that do not change during propagation. With the new method, the physicists cleverly exploit light structures that can be seen in rainbows or when light is transmitted through drinking glasses.

Modern applications as high resolution microsopy or micro- or nanoscale material processing require customized laser beams that do not change during...
