Insights into mechanisms of central nervous system myelination using zebrafish

Extraordinary Seminar

Date:04.05.2015, 11:00 - 12:00
Speaker:Dr. Tim Czopka, TU Munich, Institute of Neuronal Cell Biology
Location: CRTD, auditorium left
Host: Michell M. Reimer

Understanding how the different cell types that build our central nervous system (CNS) communicate and influence one another is key to understand its function. We are interested in the cells which produce myelin in the CNS (oligodendrocytes), the insulating multimembrane layer that surrounds most of our axons.

Artificial Nanoswimmers

Lecture Series on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Date:05.05.2015, 17:00 - 18:00
Speaker: Prof. Ambarish Ghosh, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
Location: BIOTEC, Tatzberg 47/49, Seminar room E05 (groundfloor)

The idea of tiny vessels roaming around in human blood vessels working as surgical nanorobots was first proposed by Richard Feynman, a vision that has triggered imagination in scientists and non-scientists alike. With current advances in nanotechnology, there have been several strategies to realize this dream of a “nanovoyager”, aiming to maneuver artificial nanostructures in biological media for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. We will provide a review of the various approaches that have been used to move artificial nanostructures remotely in fluidic environments in a controllable fashion, with special emphasis on manipulation techniques that rely on small, spatially homogenous magnetic fields.

Ambarish Ghosh received his undergraduate degree in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. Subsequently, he did his PhD in Physics from Brown University in 2004, and worked at Harvard University from 2005-2009 as a postdoctoral fellow. In 2009, he joined Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India as an Assistant Professor, where he is currently a faculty member at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering, and associate faculty at the Departments of Physics and Electrical Communication Engineering. His research interests include the study of quantum fluids, plasmonics, driven colloidal particles and their applications in biotechnology.



Adult Neurogenesis: Evolution, Regulation and Function

ABCAM Neurogenesis Meeting

Date:06.05.2015, 09:00 - 08.05.2015, 18:00
Location: CRTD
Host: Prof. Gerd Kempermann

In 2015 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Joseph Altman's landmark discovery of adult neurogenesis. The 2015 Abcam conference on adult neurogenesis aims at putting the developmental process of adult neurogenesis and its regulation into the wider context of its functional and presumed evolutionary relevance.

Fourth meeting in the series!

Following meetings in Dresden (2007), Frauenchiemsee (2010) and Barcelona (2012), we are delighted to be returning to Dresden for the fourth meeting in the series chaired by Prof Gerd Kempermann (German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) Dresden, Germany).
