Three hours, four lectures and twelve scientists
PI Dr Michael Joner of the Deutsches Herzzentrum and PI Prof Dr Horst Kessler of TUM´s Department of Chemistry/ IAS have joined forces in IGSSE´s new project team “Differential Integrin Activation in the Process of Restenosis and Endotheliasation of Human Stents”. Project Team Leader Dr. Carles Mas Murono was happy to welcome all involved scientists and IGSSE project manager Judith O´Meara for three hours of intensive scientific discussion and the first networking steps at its Kick-Off Meeting on November 9th. Two team members of each group presented their preliminary and current work and results of the experiments about the circumvention of the limitations of current stent technologies. As the following discussions and the successful development of a scientific agenda were highly stimulating, the social get-together had to be postponed to a much anticipated Christmas dinner on December 20th.
