This new training course is a perfect tool in your journey to advance your leadership development and professional capability.
The room around you sways up and down and you feel seasick. While searching for the cause of dizziness, scientists at UiO have developed a new method for spinning things under a microscope and registering the activity in brain cells in movement.
If the blood supply to your brain decreases, it can trigger Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists at UiO wanted to find out whether this leads to more or fewer blood vessels and what role one particular protein plays in such a process.
The three RELIGHT – Research ExceLlence and Innovation in Global HealTh research groups have been working hard over the past three years (2019-2021) to advance their global health agendas. Look into their final report as our first RELIGHT project cohort.
Today, the main focus is on lowering high cholesterol levels in adults in order to prevent atherosclerosis. But then it is already too late - we should start focusing on lowering cholesterol in childhood, suggests professor Kirsten Holven.
The genes that influence the risk of developing schizophrenia appear to be the same genes that affect the thickness and size of the surface of the brain.
Women know less about the so-called overdiagnosis of breast cancer compared to other aspects of mammogram screening. Despite this, there are few indications that women drop out of mammogram screening programmes after receiving more information.
A new vaccine against tuberculosis may also be used as treatment. The vaccine is safe to give to people with tuberculosis disease and strengthens the immune system's ability to attack the bacteria that cause the disease, a new study shows.
The Centre for Global Health is accepting applications for one additional Research ExceLlence and Innovation in Global HealTh (RELIGHT) project for the 2022-2024 period. Deadline: 18 February 2022
The immune system stores enormous amounts of health and disease-relevant information. Researchers are attempting to decipher this information with the help of artificial intelligence, with the aim to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
Too little or too much iodine can have dramatic consequences on human health. Much can be accomplished with small measures, but these must consider local iodine variations, research from Somaliland shows.
Imagine zooming in millions of times into your body until you reach the innermost part of your cells. A group of scientists at UiO is doing just that, to help researchers all over the world prove their theories.
