The Beilstein-Institut has launched its first issue of the Beilstein Magazine. This new open access publication presents essays and other contributions from leading scientists.
This Symposium embraces structural, computational and biological disciplines to discuss the limits and challenges of systems biology. Thus, the title of this conference is "From Enzymology to Systems Biology and Back". See now the list of speakers and their planned contributions.
"Magnetization Dynamics on the Nanometer Scale" is the topic of the Beilstein Nanotechnology Symposiums 2015. It takes place from 6 to 9 September, 2015 in Potsdam, Germany. The scientific program is now available.
The three-year funding period has been completed successfully: With a smile in one eye and a tear in the other, the first generation of Beilstein scholars said goodbye at the end of June 2015. The end of the scholarship program is also the beginning of an alumni program.
On 12 May 2015, the mid-term evaluation of the second generation of Beilstein scholars took place in the Beilstein-Institut. At the end of April, the eight scholarship holders had already submitted their interim reports for their PhD projects. During the mid-term evaluation symposium, the young investigators presented their research results of the first 18 months. Each of the 15-minute presentations was followed by a question and answer session and a short discussion.
In a relaxed atmosphere, there was a lively exchange among the scholars and with the attending staff of the Beilstein-Institut. As the evaluation of all projects was positive, board member Dr. Martin G. Hicks handed out the written funding commitment for the next 18 months. At lunch, any last tension and nervousness were shaken off and the day ended with professional exchanges on thoughts and experiences.
