AAAS Local: Berlin

, ,

This networking event is for scientists, AAAS members, and science enthusiasts wanting to make personal and professional connections in their local community both inside and outside their own disciplines. Over the course of this year AAAS will be launching a series of these local events in cities around the world.

Our special guest speakers for this Berlin event are AAAS members Klaus Affeld and Udo Heinemann. Affeld is the founder of the Biofluid Mechancis Lab at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Affeld uses his engineering knowledge to solve flow-related problems in medicine, and more specifically, cardiovascular mechanics. Affeld has developed two different heart assist systems - one implantable kind and another that is a partially implantable pneumatic heart assist system. Heinemann is a professor of molecular medicine at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Macromolecular Structure and Interaction. Heinemann's interest is the structural analyses of functional modules using macromolecular crystal-lo-graphy as its central method.

They will open the evening event, giving short presentations on the latest research in their fields. Following the lectures, we will be holding a cocktail reception, giving you the opportunity to network with the speakers and other attendees.

Join us for a night of stimulating science and great conversation.
