The 9th Nordic EMBL Partnership Meeting will be hosted by NCMM in Oslo.
Meeting for Young Investigators at the 9th Annual Network Meeting of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.
The course builds on approaches and technologies that we are currently developing in the NTNU DrugLogics initiative, where we use the logical modelling formalism for predicting the outcome of chemical perturbations (cancer drugs) on cancer cell fate decisions. This approach combines knowledge management, logical model construction and computational simulation with experimental assays and hypothesis testing for pre-clinical (biotechnological) drug development and clinical decision support. The course will exemplify how such approaches can be used in both the biotechnological and biomedical sectors such as pre-clinical drug discovery and repurposing, and clinical development of diagnosis and (combinatorial) treatment of cancer.
Dr. Zoll will give the talk, "Trypanosomes' magic bullet - Understanding the structural basis of SRA-mediated immune escape in Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense"
Dr. Javier Gutiérrez-Fernández, postdoc in Leonid Sazanov’s group at IST (Institute of Science and Technology) Austria, will give a guest lecture titled, "Insights into the structure and mechanism of bacterial proteins and complexes"
The annual conference of Digital Life Norway Research School is organized for and by the research school members.
Dr. Valentina Boeva, Group Leader at the Institut Cochin, Paris, France, will present the lecture entitled "Discovery of two epigenetic states of neuroblastoma cells via the analysis of super-enhancer landscape."
This year's innovation day is part of the Life science Technology & Business Conference - " 37° - Digitalising Health", 19 - 20 June 2018, Stavanger, Norway.
Professor Frank Sobott, Chair of Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry at the Astbury Centre, University of Leeds, will give the talk titled, "Dynamic protein structure: from protein disorder to membrane pores"
Dr. Mika Rämet, of PEDEGO research unit, University of Oulo, Finland, will give a talk titled, "Zebrafish as a model to study Mycobacterial infection".
Ankur Garg, PhD, will give a talk titled, "Structural and functional analysis of ribonuclease ZC3H12C mediated regulation of immune responses"
Welcome to an academia-industry meeting day, AIMday®, focused on the use of machine learning in life science and medicine. Machine learning, in which systems automatically learn complex patterns in data, and improve from experience, is becoming an essential tool in healthcare diagnosis, treatment and care, as well as in medical research.
University - Industry Collaboration (UIC) often starts through personal contacts. To facilitate a good career start for our students and increase UIC, the Department of Biotechnology, NTNU, and the Digital Life Norway Research School, join forces and invite you to a biotech career day with focus on industry.
M.Sc. Julia-Kristina Jensen Madsen-Østerbye will be defending the thesis titled, "Studies of hematopoiesis – physiologic and malignant development"
M.Sc. Julia-Kristina Jensen Madsen-Østerbye, NCMM, will give the trial lecture titled, "iPSC derived Haematopoietic Stem Cells - mechanisms and clinical potential"
In this two-day workshop we invite scholars to reflect on what is being valued in existing, emerging and envisioned life science knowledge infrastructures. We ask questions like: What visions, hopes and imaginaries guide the construction of such infrastructures? What becomes enacted as valuable through the practices of constructing them? How can questions like these contribute to well-constructed research infrastructures?
Marieke Kuijjer, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard T.H. School of Public Health, will give a talk titled: "Understanding cancer using integrative network models"
Centre for Digital Life Norway in collaboration with partners welcome you to a one-day workshop on Design Thinking applied to life science and biotechnology.
The Centre for Digital Life Norway welcomes all interested to a public lecture on the role of neuroscience for the future of psychiatry by the prominent British sociologist Nikolas Rose. He will address questions such as: Where does the current scientific and popular attention to the human brain come from? Does it change how we understand ourselves? And where are the social sciences and humanities in all of this?
Prof Nikolas Rose will focus on how modern neuroscience and attention towards brain function and mental health changes how we perceive ourselves
Dr. Leonardo Bottolo, Reader in Statistics for Biomedicine, Dept of Medical Genetics, University of Cambridge, will present his research on "A global-local approach for detecting eQTL hotspots in ultra-high multiple response regressions".
This time Professor Nathalie Reuter will give a presentation of the Biotek2021 funded project and the use of computational biology methods for drug discovery against Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Dr. Albin Sandelin, Professor, The Bioinformatics Centre, Department of Biology & BRIC, Copenhagen University, Denmark, will present the lecture entitled "The enhancer and promoter landscape of inflammatory bowel disease".
