Throughout history many different modeling approaches has been developed to understand biological systems. What can we learn from these models?
How can organisms maintain stable internal conditions in a changing environment or during growth? The concept of homeostasis has been important for understanding physiological regulation, development of disease and more recently for bioengineering and synthetic biology.
The centre welcomes Professor Natasa Pruzlj of Biomedical Data Science at UCL to give her Volterra lecture on Friday 28 September at NTNU. She will discuss linking heterogeneous data in the biomedical domain.
Dr. Eva Maria Novoa, Group Leader of the Epitranscriptomics and RNA Dynamics Group at the Centre for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona, Spain, will present the lecture "Elucidation of RNA structure dynamics using second- and third-generation sequencing technologies."
We are very excited that the biannual meeting for the International Study Group for Systems Biology (ISGSB) will be in Norway, Tromsø, this year! Centre for Digital Life Norway is involved in the event, which brings together systems biologists and mathematical modellers from around the world.
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?
