The PBM Symposium, which has been held annually at different research locations in Germany so far, will be organized virtually this year. A strong focus will be on applications of particle-based materials and on the extension of the Network over Europe and the World. Participation is free of charge.
For the third time, INM is organizing a virtual mini-symposium, this time on “Bioprocessed and Bioinspired Materials”. In three lectures, international scientists will examine the topic from their respective perspectives.
Prof. André R. Studart, ETH Zürich, Switzerland
Prof. Wilfried Weber, University Freiburg, Germany
Prof. Amar Mohanty, University of Guelph, Canada
Kaspar Althoefer – Queen Mary University of London, UK
Bas Overvelde – AMOLF, Amsterdam, NL
Janos Vörös – ETH Zürich, CH

Optogenetics and photonic technologies are changing the future of medicine. To implement light‐based therapies in the clinic, patient‐friendly devices that can deliver light inside the body while offering tunable properties and compatibility with soft tissues are needed.
An article by Jun Feng et al. published in Advanced Functional Materials is dedicated to this topic.
On 24 September, the Improve-stem consortium, of which INM is a member, is organizing a virtual symposium on the occasion of the MSE congress (Darmstadt) entitled: “B04: Cell culture substrates: new surfaces for stem cell proliferation (B: Biomaterials)”
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.
The lectures will take place as webinars on five days at 5 p.m.
Registration is not required! Please log in via the respective invitation link!
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.
