The conference will focus on three highly relevant aspects of nanosafety research: “Development of safe nanomaterials”, “Toxicological aspects – from molecular mechanisms to prediction”, and “Nanomaterials and the environment”.
Given the more than two billion people worldwide who have no access to clean drinking water, the purification of salty or contaminated water is of global importance.
Volker Presser, head of the program division Energy Materials at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken and professor for Energy Materials at Saarland University, has achieved a breakthrough in the field of electrochemical water desalination with his research group. In the current issue of the journal Electrochemistry Communications, he and his co-authors
The lectures will take place as webinars on five days at 5 p.m.

The Scientific Director of INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials and Professor for New Materials at Saarland University, Eduard Arzt, was elected as an International Member by the United States National Academy of Engineering. With this, Arzt receives one of the highest scientific awards in the USA.
Scientists from four continents will meet on February 12, 2020, on the campus of Saarland University for a three-day conference on a new approach to materials synthesis. They are focusing on so-called “living materials”, which open up completely new possibilities in medicine, but also in many other areas.
In a cooperation project between the INM and the University of Namibia (UNAM), funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, a fireproof building material made of acacia wood chippings and an inorganic binder was developed.
Immune cells are constantly on the move to intercept pathogens. In the skin, these are especially so-called dendritic cells, which move through the cell layers much faster than other body cells. How the cells do this exactly has not been investigated so far. Biophysicists led by Professor Franziska Lautenschläger have now discovered how the movement
In January 2020, a new junior research group around Dr. Shrikrishnan Sankaran has started at INM. Under the title “Bioprogrammable Materials” it will exploit synthetic biology approaches to engineer novel functional materials with a focus on biomedical applications.
