Multiscale Mechanochemistry & Mechanobiology - From Molecular Mechanisms to Smart Materials

Mechanoresponsive materials are a topic of intense research across numerous disciplines. In biology, research on biogenic materials has revealed crucial links between specific protein building blocks and dynamic mechanical behaviors, while studies of biological tissues have identified sophisticated mechanotranduction mechanisms in cells for sensing their environment. Along similar lines, chemists and materials scientists are developing high-performance materials that exhibit specific programmed responses to mechanical stimuli (e.g. self-reporting and self-healing). Common to these diverse lines of research is a primary drive to understand dynamic responses of complex molecules to mechanical stimuli. [more]

Multiscale Motility of Biomolecular Machines

Biomolecular motors are the driving force behind many essential processes of life, they transport cargoes in cells, process the genetic information and power cell motility as well as developmental processes. Their functions are based on movements on many time and length scales, ranging from the sub-molecular to the cellular scale. This three-day symposium will highlight recent advances in the study of their function and their dynamics. The central topics of the meeting are Transport by cytoskeletal motors Information-processing by polymerases and ribosomes Molecular machines in cell movements and other processes [more]

21st Ostwald-Kolloquium

This colloquium aims to bring together scientists working with different materials at fluid interfaces, to exchange ideas and to create new concepts, which are of increasing importance and relevance in the field of modern colloid, material and life sciences. In the last years, Langmuir monolayers have encountered a drastic increase in activity mainly due to the applicability of highly interface sensitive techniques. However, they are not directly relevant for applications. Yet, due to their high definition they are excellent models for many areas with application potential. They are the precursors for Langmuir-Blodgett films, organized monolayers possessing potential for coatings and organic electronics. They present the interfaces in emulsions, a basic structure in colloid science. They have a high value as 2D models of biological membranes (phospholipid monolayers at the air/water interface) to study structures and bimolecular interactions. Langmuir monolayers became more and more used as model template systems to better understand the elementary steps of biomineralization processes. The ability of biological samples to self-assemble at the air/water interface makes them valuable templates for functional nano-materials. The design and synthesis of new NPs for future biomedical applications has received increased scientific attention during the last years. The self-assembly of novel amphiphiles at the air-water interface has been even used to produce mechanically robust, macroscopically extended carbon nanosheets at room temperature. Ostwald4 The program will consist of invited and contributed talks as well as of a poster session. Young scientists are especially encouraged to attend the Ostwald Kolloquium and to present a poster or a short talk. Accordingly this should become a very lively meeting that will show the current state of research as well as the way to promising activities and developments in the future. [more]
