    Researchers at the University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital have discovered how destructive changes occur in our genome. This could lead to cancer. Their results have been published in the journal Nature Cell Biology.

  • colourbox21423763 A new method can provide tailor-made vaccines Mar. 13, 2020 4:40 PM

    Vaccines can be far more targeted and effective than they are today. A new method will allow us to develop new vaccines more cheaply and efficiently and perhaps get one step ahead of bacteria.

Research events

Jan. 27, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM , Zoom

The pandemic, while still ongoing, has already had a dramatic impact on UiO activity and highlighted issues with implications that are yet to be fully grasped. This panel discussion is an attempt at opening up a UiO-wide conversation that will enable influential voices in the university research environment to share their experience and perspectives on this situation. Specifically, we will focus on: 

  • How does COVID-19 affect early career researchers?

  • What are the institutions doing to mitigate the impact?

  • What are foreseeable difficulties on the implementation of such measures?

Jan. 29, 2021 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM , Zoom!

UiODoc is ready for the year's very first PhD and Postdoc Breakfast Club! We hope you will join us in listening to Matthew Good's timely talk about his Digital Scholarship Center project and the increasingly important digital research.
