Registrierung
Patienten brauchen einen schnellen Zugang zu neuesten diagnostischen Technologien und individuellen Therapien. Heute - nicht erst in 20 Jahren.
Das Leibniz-Symposium am 20. März 2019 widmet sich deshalb neuen Ansätzen in Medizin und Medizintechnik, die eine frühe und therapiebegleitende Diagnostik ermöglichen und so eine personalisierte Behandlung als Standard in Kliniken und Arztpraxen etablieren können.
Angefangen bei der Behandlung von Krebs und der Rolle, die Biomarker und Bildgebung dabei spielen, über die Diagnostik von Krankheitserregern direkt am Krankenbett bis hin zur Herstellung synthetischer Organe und bioaktiver Materialien im Rahmen der regenerativen Medizin. Mit allem verbunden jedoch: "Big Data" - die Grundvoraussetzung einer modernen Medizin, die frühe und therapiebegleitende Diagnostik und personalisierte Behandlungsansätze als Standard in Kliniken und Arztpraxen etablieren will.

Title: "Learning from nature: Investigation of the hybrid nano composites of the chiton tooth towards high-tech 3D-printable materials."
The lab project "Mikrostrukturierung von Polymeroberflächen zur Beeinflussung der Bakterienhaftung" of Richard Wustmann, 11th grade student at Martin-Andersen-Nexö-Gymnasium, Dresden has been awarded 2nd place in area Dresden-Ostsachsen in the Physics category.

Richard Wustmann applied a low pressure plasma-based wrinkling procedure to fabricate laterally graded microstructures on polydimethylsiloxane. These surfaces were used in subsequent screening experiments to explore the impact of micron-scale surface morphology on bacterial adhesion.

Congratulations!

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) will support Dr. Ben Newland over the next two years through his project „Development of a transplantation platform technology applicable to improving graft survival in the brain“.

He will work on developing new materials to assist cells during the transplantation process. Cell therapies hold the potential to halt the progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease. However, the majority of cells grafted to the brain die soon after transplantation. In order to improve the survival of the cells we will produce microscale materials capable of releasing nutrients to the grafted cells to provide support for them during the early stages post transplantation. If successful, such materials could improve the efficiency and outcomes of cell therapies in the brain.

Congratulations!
