Control theory has been successfully applied in engineering to build stable and reliably behaving devices. How can concepts developed in control engineering help us understand regulation in biological systems and how to develop reliable, integrated medical devices? In this workshop we will present and discuss some of the existing and novel concepts of control theory and how they can be applied in biotechnology and medical engineering.
Dr. Günter Klambauer, Institute for Bioinformatics, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria, will present the lecture "Deep Learning methods in early-stage drug discovery."
Computational approaches that can aid our understanding of cancer development are improving. Are we approaching the time when computer simulations could become a clinical tool in cancer treatment?
In conjunction with the 7th CCBIO Symposium Omid Farokzhad will deliver a Volterra lecture Tuesday May 14th titled "Perspectives on how to Translate Biomedical Research to Products and Cures" The lecture is held at Solstrand Hotel&Bad near Bergen and is open for everyone.
10 May 2019, Industrial PhD candidate Odd Martin Staal will publicly defend his PhD degree at NTNU.
Welcome to this guest lecture 9 May held by Professor Ali Cinar (Illinois Institute of Technology). He will visit NTNU, Trondheim as an opponent for Odd Martin Staal’s PhD defence, scheduled for 10 May.
This lecture is free and open to anyone interested, hosted by Centre for Digital Life Norway.
Combining computational and experimental approaches, MIT-Professor Christopher Voigt has made outstanding contributions to the fields of synthetic biology and biological engineering. In the beginning of May he guests our Volterra Lecture Series in Oslo, Trondheim and Bergen, to offer his approach on programming cells.
A two day workshop with members of Digital Life research projects to foster mutual learning on responsible research and innovation in practice.
Dr. Pekka Marttinen, Assistant Professor, Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT, Aalto University, Finland, will present the lecture "A Bayesian model of acquisition and clearance of bacterial colonization incorporating within-host variation."
NCMM group leader will present her research as part of Oslo Science Park's 'Food for Thought' series
Join artists and scientists for an evening of exploration and discussion, where we will debate how to optimize the future!
How can more realistic mechanical and mechanistic descriptions of organisms and their interactions make ecological models more predictive and help us understand evolution of traits, their underlying genetics and the optimality trade-offs experienced by organisms? Prof. Øyvind Fiksen (Theoretical Ecology group, Department of Biosciences) will address these and other related questions at this breakfast seminar.
M.Sc. Oksana Svärd at Norwegian centre for molecular medicine will be defending the thesis “Chromatin dynamics during human hematopoietic development” for the degree of PhD (Philosophiae Doctor).
M.Sc. Oksana Svärd at Norwegian centre for molecular medicine will give a trial lecture on the given topic: Using single cell sequencing to understand healthy and malignant haematopoiesis.
Dr. Anne-Laure Boulesteix, associate professor at the Department of Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology of the Faculty of Medicine, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany, will present her lecture "A plea for benchmarking and against fishing expeditions with focus on the statistical analysis of omics data."
Professor Nenad Ban, of ETH Zurich, will give the talk: "Protein synthesis: from ribosome assembly to targeting of membrane proteins". The seminar is the first in a series on biological single particle cryo-electron microscopy.
What comes next once you are comfortable with the syntax of a programming language or two, and have written some small programs for yourself? Once a project grows to a certain size, factors beyond the immediate programming task take more and more time, and the social aspects of software development become more important.
Dr. Elana Fertig, Associate Professor of Oncology and Applied Mathematics and Statistics Assistant Director of the Sydney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA, will present the lecture "Uncovering hidden sources of transcriptional dysregulation arising from inter- and intra-tumor heterogeneity."
Dr. Francesca Buffa, Associate Professor, Computational Biology and Integrative Genomics, Department of Oncology, CRUK/MRC Institute, University of Oxford, will present the lecture "In-silico modelling of the tumour microenvironment."
Registration is now open for the NCMM annual network meeting.
Do you want to use illustrations as an effective communication tool?
The first breakfast seminar this year will be about visual data science. We are very happy to announce that Prof. Helwig Hauser, PI of the visualization group at the Department of Informatics (UiB), will talk to us about this exciting topic.
University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital, BTO, and Digital Life Norway invites you to a seminar focusing on dilemmas arising when you are a researcher also doing innovation, in addition to the Whys and Hows concerning patenting and publishing.
