BioNews No. 49: Centrifuges: Everything revolves around your workflows

Centrifugation is an integral component of many workflows in modern scientific and diagnostic laboratories. The spectrum of methods ranges from pelleting precipitated DNA in the field of molecular biology to purification of lymphocytes and monocytes via density gradient centrifugation in the areas of cell biology and human diagnostics.

Eppendorf started off the year by introducing two brand new centrifuges. Both instruments follow the same extremely high Eppendorf standards in reliability, safety, and convenience – the performance you need for your successful lab applications.

Off the Bench 02|2017

An Interview with Madeline Lancaster: Brain Research in the Third Dimension

Hamburg, October 12, 2017 – The new “Off the Bench” is here. Eppendorf AG publishes the life science and style magazine twice per year. The current title story introduces British cell biologist Madeline Lancaster, who developed a method for growing four-millimeter mini brains from cell cultures. The researcher and her team are passionately pursuing the question of what sets us as humans apart from other living beings.

In addition to three-dimensional brain research, Off the Bench explores how so-called super plants extract poisonous substances from the soil and use them to their benefit. A research approach to freeing contaminated soil of heavy metals? It is also plants which came to life this spring in the Californian desert after years of drought, transforming the otherwise bleak landscape into a sea of colors.

Other exciting topics included in this issue are a city profile of Washington, where the leading trade show for neuroscientists from all over the globe, “Neuroscience”, will be held in November, as well as a report on research careers and the global stations of scientist Wim Delva. A guest contribution presented by Off the Bench with the kind authorization of the scientific publication “Science”.

Off the Bench can be ordered free of charge via magazine@eppendorf.com, or you may subscribe online at News & Media.

All magazine content is also available online at www.eppendorf.com/OTB.

2017 Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators presented to Tom Baden

This year’s research prize awarded by Eppendorf goes to the United Kingdom

Tom Baden PD., Ph.D.

Heidelberg/Hamburg, June 23, 2017

In 2017, the Hamburg life science company is presenting its highly prestigious research prize for the 22nd time. The independent Eppendorf Award Jury chaired by Prof. Reinhard Jahn selected Dr. Tom Baden, Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience at the University of Sussex, Brighton, United Kingdom, as the 2017 winner of the Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators.

The Award ceremony took place at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, Germany, on June 22, 2017. The laudatio honoring Tom Baden’s achievements was held by Award Jury member Prof. Maria Leptin.

Tom Baden, born 1982, receives the € 20,000 prize for his ground-breaking work on signal processing in the retina. The Jury: “His results have profoundly changed our understanding of circuits and synaptic computation in the retina, revealing novel and exciting properties of sensory neurons. The findings are of general significance for our understanding how small neuronal microcircuits can dissociate complex sensory patterns into specific representations within the nervous system.”

In his scientific talk ‘What the eye tells the brain, and how it got there’, Tom Baden explained the optical approach that he and his colleagues had tried in order to provide a functional roadmap of how light entering the eye and impinging on millions of photoreceptor neurons ultimately results in a highly processed and parallelized representation of the visual world to be sent to the brain.

Tom Baden: “I am humbled and delighted by this award, which recognizes a long-standing team effort that involved the hard work of several talented colleagues, most notably Katrin Franke, Philipp Berens and Thomas Euler”.

With the Eppendorf Young Investigator Award, which was established in 1995, Eppendorf AG honors outstanding work in biomedical research and supports young scientists in Europe up to the age of 35. The Eppendorf Award is presented in partnership with the scientific journal Nature. The Award winner is selected by an independent committee composed of Prof. Reinhard Jahn (Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Germany), Prof. Dieter Häussinger (Clinic for Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Infectiology, Düsseldorf, Germany), Prof. Maria Leptin (EMBO, Heidelberg, Germany), Prof. Martin J. Lohse (Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association, Berlin, Germany), and Prof. Laura Machesky (Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute, Glasgow, UK).
