A large Norwegian study published by the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Oslo found that sunbed users are at not only at higher risk of developing melanoma, but also tend to develop the cancer at a younger age compared to nonusers.
Emerging evidence suggests a role for perineuronal nets (PNNs) in learning and regulation of plasticity but the underlying mechanisms remain unresolved. Here, we used chronic in vivo extracellular recordings to investigate how removal of PNNs affects plasticity and neural activity over time.
Congratulation to our postdoc Mattis with a substantial paper showing that activity in primary auditory cortex is required at critical memory phases and plasticity enables stimulus discrimination.
The merger between Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM) and the Biotechnology Centre of Oslo (BiO) formally came into effect on 2 January 2017.

UiO:Life Science welcomes you to the Oslo Life Science Conference – Building the Life Science City – 15th–17th February 2017.
We have hosted life science lunches on innovation, epigenetics, gene editing and cancer and stem cells in 2016. Watch the recordings of the seminars.
UiO:Life Science is one of three large interdisciplinary strategic areas at UiO. Our strategy states that we shall strengthen quality and interaction in research; recruit, educate and develop talents; and promote innovation in the life sciences related to environment and health. A life sciences building, which is planned for completion in 2023, is a significant aspect of our work.
Anne Kveim Lie is one of Norway’s ten most fantastic speakers, according to the accolade from the Morgenbladet daily. She involves substance abusers in her teaching, and fosters critical reflection among the next generation of doctors.
3D-printing of human tissue is no longer Science Fiction, it's a science fact. The Norwegian Center for Stem Cell Research launches The Neuron Factory, a platform that can produce human neurons for research purposes.
