Klasse für Naturwissenschaften und Medizin, 560. Sitzung

Joint talk of Prof. Dr. Ryan Gilmour Ph.D., Münster and Prof. Dr. med. Michael Schäfers, Münster: "Exploring life by molecular imaging – A clinican, a chemist and a cluster"; Prof. ’ in Dr. Ursula Hamenstaedt, Bonn: "Origamis und flache Flächen"

Professor Dr. Michael Schäfers

Professor Dr. Michael Schäfers was born in Neuburg / Donau in 1967 and studied medicine at the University of Münster from 1987 to 1994. After his study he was working as a research fellow at the MRC Cyclotron Unit, London UK in 1994 and 1995. In London, he performed first preclinical and clinical molecular imaging PET studies focussing on the sympathetic nervous system of the heart in health and arrhythmogenic disease. In 1995 he was awarded his medical doctor’s degree and started his clinical training at the Department of Nuclear Medicine, University of Münster. In 1999 he received his venia legendi in “Nuclear Medicine” and became C3-Professor for “Experimental nuclear medicine” at the University of Münster. Together with Prof. Otmar Schober he founded the inter-faculty “European Institute for Molecular Imaging – EIMI” and became Prof. of Technology and Imaging at the EIMI in 2007. In addition, he became head of the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Münster in 2013. Since 2012 he is spokesman of the DFG CRC 656 „Molecular Cardiovascular Imaging“, since 2012 he is Co-Coordinator of DFG EXC 1003 Cluster of Excellence “CiM – Cells in Motion”, Münster.

Professor Dr. Ryan Gilmour

Professor Dr. Ryan Gilmour was born in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1980. He received a Masters degree (1st class) from the University of St Andrews in 2002. He then moved to the University of Cambridge to complete a Ph.D. with Professor Andrew B. Holmes FRS working on cyctotoxic marine natural product medium ring ether synthesis. Following a one year post-doctoral stay with Professor Alois Fürstner at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung (D) working on marine polyketide synthesis, he moved to the ETH Zurich (CH) to join Professor Peter H. Seeberger’s group. In December 2007 he was awarded the Alfred-Werner-Assistant-Professorship and in August 2008 the Board of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology appointed him as Assistant Professor of Synthetic Organic Chemistry at the ETH Zurich. In October 2012, Gilmour accepted a call to the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität where he currently holds the “CiMIC Professorship of Chemical Biology” as part of the Excellence Initiative “CiM – Cells in Motion” .

Exploring life by molecular imaging – A clinican, a chemist and a cluster


Cells are the essential building blocks of all organisms. Their spatial movement, interaction and intracellular molecular function is essential for development, tissue homeostasis and regeneration but they can also cause diseases. To understand cellular behavior in its full complexity, the development and application of modern imaging strategies allowing the visualisation of cells and molecular pathways is of great importance. In their joint talk Prof. Michael Schäfers, imaging scientist and clinican, and Prof. Ryan Gilmour, organic chemist, both involved in the DFG EXC 1003 Cluster of Excellence “CiM – Cells in Motion”, Münster, present clinical challenges and chemical strategies for molecular imaging of live organisms.

Prof. ’ in Dr. Ursula Hamenstaedt

Professorin Dr. Ursula Hamenstaedt, Promotion 1986 an der Universität Bonn, von 1986 – 1988 Miller Fellow for Basic Research in Science, Berkeley, 1988 – 1990 Assistant Professor am California Institute for Technology, seit 1990 Professorin an der Universität Bonn. Arbeitsgebiete: Geometrie, dynamische Systeme, geometrische Topologie, geometrische Gruppentheorie.

Aus dem Inhalt des Vortrages
Origamis und flache Flächen

Ein Origami besteht aus einer endlichen Menge von Quadraten in der Ebene, die an allen Kanten paarweise so verklebt werden, dass eine Fläche entsteht. Eine solche Fläche kann man als Oberfläche eines Balles beschreiben, an die man eine Zahl g von Henkeln angeklebt hat. Für jedes g gibt es unendlich viele verschiedene Möglichkeiten, diese Fläche als Origami zu konstruieren. Die Zahl der Quadrate ist dabei unbeschränkt. Ziel des Vortrags wird sein, Origamis zu beschreiben und zu erklären, wie sie verwendet werden, um Erkenntnisse in zentralen Fragen auf der Schnittstelle von Geometrie, der Theorie der Zahlen, der Topologie und der dynamischen Systeme zu gewinnen. Dazu werde ich zu jedem dieser mathematischen Gebiete eine einfach zu formulierende Fragestellung vorstellen und mit Hilfe von Origamis neu for22 23 mulieren. Außerdem werde ich über neue Fortschritte in der Beantwortung dieser Fragestellungen berichten.
