Engineers are re-thinking structural connectivity

Connectivity of material microstructures is important for a wide range of applications from filters to biomaterials. Biomedical engineers from Tampere University of Technology and BioMediTech developed a new way of measuring structural connectivity using the state-of-the-art tools from computational topology and graph theory. The new approach provides a different interpretation for connectivity and is used to analyze and design materials with complex structures. The technique is recently applied to study flow in microstructures which is published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface.

Euromit 2014

Mitochondria are central players in cell metabolism, and thus crucial to health and disease

Tampere will host the international Euromit 2014 conference from the 15th to the 19th of June. The conference will be the ninth in a series of congresses dedicated to understanding how mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell, are involved in disease, and the first to be organised in Finland. Euromit 2014 will bring together leading scientists of the fields of mitochondrial pathology, cell biology and genetics from Europe, South and North America, Asia and Australia.

The conference will be chaired by Professors Howy Jacobs (University of Tampere) and Anu Suomalainen (University of Helsinki), leaders of this field in Finland and elected members of the prestigious European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO).
