Neurons, signal transduction, muscle cells – all’s well when these three components form a functional unit. Neuromuscular diseases are therefore the focus of numerous international scientists who are brought to Vienna by the LBI for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology: from 6. to 10. July 2018 the LBI together with the Austrian Society for Neurology acts as local organizer for the 15. International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases.
The International Society for Medical Shockwave Treatment (ISMST) will hold its 5th Basic Research Meeting on June 28th – 29th at the Centro Congressi in Bologna, Italy. The event is co-hosted by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology and the Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration.
If a great opportunity presents itself, why wait another year? The otherwise biannual TERMIS Winterschool returned in 2018 as a joint event with Interreg, putting mechanobiology in the spotlight. From January 14th to 17th an international group of scientists and students met in Radstadt, Austria, to discuss this innovative field. Focusing on in vitro and in vivo preclinical models the presenters shared experiences all the way from cell sources to specific applications. The last day offered insights in imaging methods.
To mark the anniversary of the first successful transplantation of the human heart Dr. Alber Kröpfl will hold the talk 50 Jahre Herztransplantation – Wie es dazu kam (50 years of heart transplantation – How this came about), in which course he will tell about the revolutionary event in South Africa as well as the groundbreaking medical developments leading up to it. The talk will take place on December 4th, 2017 at the Congress Schladming.
LIVES 2017, the 30th conference of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), took place at the Austria Center Vienna – a home match for the LBI Trauma, which was represented by numerous contributions. Marcin Osuchowski, co-organizer of the recent Wiggers-Bernard conference, presented the meeting’s most important findings. Giacomo Iapichino and Johannes Zipperle (picture) from the group of Herbert Schöchl presented their newest results on the field of trauma-induced coagulation disorders.
The EACTS-PACT Symposium will take place on November 30th and December 1st, 2017 at the Marriot Courtyard Prater/Messe in Vienna. The joint symposium is organized by the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) together with the Platform for Advanced Cellular Therapies (PACT) under the headline “Regenerative Medicine: Taking the Science to the Patient”, with a special focus on regulatory issues in respect of Biologicals and ATMPs.
The European Network of Bioadhesion Expertise (ENBA) had its first Expertise Meeting on March 6th - 7th, 2017 at the Natural History Museum Vienna, organized by Janek von Byern from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology and Norbert Cyran from the Core Facility Cell Imaging and Ultrastructure, University of Vienna. ENBA is part of the COST network (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), uniting experts in the fields of biology, physics, chemistry and engineering the study biological adhesion.
