First Ebola, now MERS. New pathogens can spread frighteningly fast. How well prepared are the experts in infection medicine? South Korea is currently facing the largest-ever outbreak of the MERS virus outside the Middle East. Several people have died and the number of people rose dramatically within a matter of days. The virus was first identified in 2012 and is now known to be transmitted by camels. German researchers have developed a vaccine and clinical trials are set to begin next year.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer worldwide. Heart attacks occur when clogged coronary arteries prevent the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. That causes heart muscle cells to die off, causing permanent damage. Stress, smoking, high blood pressure and lack of exercise are all factors that can lead to a heart attack. But scientists in L├╝beck have also discovered some genetic components. In numerous studies, they have identified genes or gene defects that increase the risk of heart attacks. Their work may lead to the development of therapies to treat the affected people in time.

Mark Post from the Netherlands is convinced that one day soon, steaks will be grown in the laboratory. A professor of biomedicine at the University of Maastricht, he's an expert in tissue culturing. Some time ago, he had the idea that artificial beef and pork could be grown in the lab in much the same way that stem cells are used to grow artificial heart valves or artificial skin. He's already had his first success. In 2013, he presented the world's first lab-grown hamburger. It cost an astonishing ?250,000 to grow, but the price has already dropped significantly. Post is convinced that one day soon, lab-grown meat will play an important role in feeding the world. Because cattle farming is expensive and a burden on the environment, artificial meat could help solve many different problems. DW reporter Andreas Neuhaus presents the scientist and his research.

Tune in for a rare opportunity to meet German astronaut and geophysicist, Alexander Gerst. In May 2014, Gerst flew to the International Space Station in a Soyuz spacecraft and returned six months later, having conducted a raft of scientific experiments for his "Blue Dot Mission." He wowed the world with images of Earth, taken from the ISS and shared on social media. And he became an inspiration for a generation of young European scientists. But why did Gerst want to go - as a scientist and as a human - and how does he see the future?

On this edition of Computing Primetime Ravi Ramamoorthi, director of the new UC San Diego Center for Visual Computing - or VisComp - is joined by two other faculty members on the interdisciplinary roster of UC San Diego researchers in the center: Cognitive Science professor Zhuowen Tu, and Qualcomm Institute research scientist Jurgen Schulze, who also teaches computer graphics in the Computer Science and Engineering department. In a wide-ranging conversation they discuss the three grand research themes that underpin VisComp activities: Mobile visual computing and digital imaging to capture, process and display the visual world with smartphones and other devices; Interactive digital (augmented) reality to allow us to render and mix real and virtual content seamlessly and realistically in real time, and the ability to automate computer-based visual understanding of the world from small-scale underwater organisms to large cities.
