The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced 22 late-breaking trial and science presentations that will be reported at TCT 2021. TCT is the annual scientific symposium of CRF and the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine. It will take place November 4-6, 2021 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center and simultaneously broadcast live.
What is the role of biodiversity and how has the perception of biodiversity changed in the course of the last 30 years? In his evening lecture “Biodiversity – Impact and Change”, the biologist Prof. Dr. Christian Wirth will provide answers to these and other questions. This lecture will take place as part of the Leopoldina’s Annual Assembly on Friday, 24 September, 8:15pm to 9:15pm in Halle (Saale)/Germany and will be streamed live.

Chewing gum after heart surgery may kickstart the digestive tract, helping patients feel better and potentially be discharged sooner than those who don't use this generally safe and simple intervention.
Practice-changing data presented at ESMO Congress 2021 proves oncology has recovered from pandemic-related setbacks
Researchers today are examining the development of computing systems from a different perspective, one more in line with sustainability rather than just power, performance and speed. To further the growing field of sustainable computing, a new series of workshops by experts in this field has been developed and will launch its first activity this September.

Lung surgery patients who utilize a comprehensive, evidence-based enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program require fewer opioid prescriptions when discharged and this effect was sustained over the 4-year study period.
An international team of researchers is paving the path to discovering and developing new materials capable of flipping their electrical polarization — a critical property for components in sensors, memory storage devices and more. Led by Changqing Jin, professor in the Beijing National Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOPCAS), scientists fabricated a structural bridge to induce the electrical polarization switch in more sophisticated, and potentially more plentiful materials. The research team presented their findings at the 2021 Fall Meeting of the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS)(https://www.european-mrs.com/emergent-functional-materials-respect-extreme-conditions-emrs-0) held between September 20 and 23. The paper was originally published earlier this year in Nature Communications 12:747(2021).
The decline of biodiversity is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Extinction rates have risen dramatically, and we risk losing many plants and animal species irretrievably. This has consequences in many areas, including agriculture, nutrition and climate protection. The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina is dedicating its Annual Assembly 2021 to the topic of “Biodiversity and the Future of Variety”. Taking place in person in Halle (Saale)/Germany, as well as online, scientists will come together on Friday, 24 September, and Saturday, 25 September, to discuss the importance of biodiversity and how it can be preserved in the future.
Inviting Prof. Rodriguez from UIC-Barcelona, we are going to hold 60th COINS Seminar on October 7, 16:00-17:30 (Japan Standard Time), entitled as "Targeting neurons: more brain than brawn to solve obesity". It will be held by online meeting and pre-registration is required through the following URL. https://coins.kawasaki-net.ne.jp/form/seminar60_en/index.html
