Medical College of Wisconsin to Host 8th World Congress for Microcirculation, Aug. 15-19

The Medical College of Wisconsin will host the 8th World Congress for Microcirculation, Aug. 15-19, at the Midwest Airlines Center in downtown Milwaukee. The Medical College is hosting the event in conjunction with the Microcirculatory Society. Julian H. Lombard, Ph.D., professor of physiology at the Medical College, is serving as chair of the planning committee.

According to Dr. Lombard, this is the first time since 1991 that the congress, which occurs at four-to-five-year intervals, is being held in the United States. It is expected to draw approximately 1,200 biomedical researchers and exhibitors from the U.S. and abroad.

Dr. Lombard’s own research is focused on the molecular and cellular physiologic mechanisms by which changes in oxygen availability regulate active tone in microscopic blood vessels and small resistance arteries, and how increased salt intake in the diet affects the regulation of the cardiovascular system.

“BUMPY” GLASS COULD LEAD TO SELF-CLEANING WINDOWS, SLICK MICROMACHINES

“BUMPY” GLASS COULD LEAD TO SELF-CLEANING WINDOWS, SLICK MICROMACHINES
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State University engineers are designing super-slick, water-repellent surfaces that mimic the texture of lotus leaves.

The patent-pending technology could lead to self-cleaning glass, and could also reduce friction between the tiny moving parts inside microdevices.

Although it's easy to lump all small things together, you will find big differences between microtechnology and nanotechnology. Certainly nanotechnology is smaller, dealing with particles measured in billionths of a meter, while microtechnology means things a thousand times larger.
