Harald Stenmark, head of the Cellular Membrane Dynamics group at the Department of Molecular Biology and director of the Center for Cancer Cell Reprogramming, is the leader of one of 25 research projects receiving a total of 100 million NOK from the Research Council of Norway and the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education (Diku), that run the program INTPART together.
The 2018 Dr. Ragnar Mørk's legacy prize went to Kaisa Haglund, head of the Cytokinesis in development and carcinogenesis project group at the Department of Molecular Cell Biology, for her outstanding research on cell division and cancer.
The first meeting of the CanCell user panel was held on November 23rd, organized by Helene Knævelsrud from the Enserink group.
On 25 October, the Academy for Young Scientists will include 8 new members for the period 2018-2022. Among the carefully selected members is CanCell's Helene Knævelsrud from Jorrit Enserink's group at the Department of Molecular Cell Biology. Congratulations!
In a recent paper in EMBO Journal, postdoc Maja Radulovic and her co-workers in Harald Stenmark's group reveal a novel mechanism that promotes cell survival, namely repair of damaged lysosomes.

Nadja Katheder from Tor Erik Rusten's group at the Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming is awarded H.M. the King's Gold Medal 2018 for best thesis of the Faculty of Medicine.
Binding of growth factors to their receptors is known to cause endocytosis and degradation of the receptors and their ligands by a mechanism that involves the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) machinery. Failure of this mechanism can lead to cancer development. In a recent paper in Nature Communications, a team led by project leaders Eva Wenzel and Camilla Raiborg at Institute for Cancer Research and Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming has used advanced microscopy methods to reveal the dynamics of ESCRT recruitment and formation of multivesicular endosomes (MVEs) into which the receptor-ligand complexes are sorted for subsequent degradation.
We congratulate Harald Stenmark with the University of Oslo Research Prize 2018!
We congratulate Fergal O'Farrell with the Oslo University Hospital excellent article award amounting to NOK 50,000.
Check out the brand-new CanCell blog where we will post popular science texts about our research on a regular basis. Our blog is intended for a general audience with a special interest for cancer research as well as for other scientists.
