Det Norske Videnskaps-Akademiis organising a seminar 18th of January 2017 at 17.30 on CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing with Emmanuelle Carpentier who is one of the developers ofthistechnology as keynote lecturer. Ragnhild Eskeland and Olav Gjelsvik will present aspects on use of the technology and ethics. To read more about the seminar visit following link.

We are very pleased to receive research funding from The Norwegian Research Council of Norway FRIPRO 2017. Ragnhild Eskeland was one of the 29 that received a research project from a total of 350 applications. This will secure two more group members for the next three years. This research is focused on how genes communicate and the dynamics of these interactions.

We are also grateful for research funding from Wedel Jarlsbergs Fund to our project Safer Medication in Pregnancy, which is part of PharmaTox Strategic Research Initiative at UiO. This is valuable funding for running costs for our study on paracetamol in human embryonic stem cells.

We have announced a 3-year bioinformatician post-doctoral position to be part of a interdisciplinary team from the Department of Informatics and the Department of Biosciences at University of Oslo. We are looking for a strong and enthusiastic candidate to work on integrative epigenomics. The candidate should have documented experience with bioinformatics and preferably with either large-scale software development or with gene regulation and chromatin. The balance between system development and modeling of gene regulation can to some degree be tuned to the selected candidate, meaning that a span of expertise ranging from generic software development to transcription factor dynamics could potentially be of relevance.

Please visit link to apply, the deadline is 1st of August 2017.

We are very happy to receive research funds from Norwegian Cancer Society. These funds will help us get a better understanding of epigenetic regulation and chromatin organisation in prostate cancer cells. This knowledge may be helpful for future diagnosis and understanding cancer progression.
