Variants in different genes may cause developmental delay and various syndromes. Researchers from USA, Saudi Arabia and Norway recently uncovered pathogenic gene variants causing developmental delay and intellectual disabilities in a gene not previously linked to genetic disease.
Vipul has presented an update of our JPIAMR EXPLOR project on a recent JPIAMR workshop (25:55 to 38:02)
An Experimental Toolbox for Structure-Based Hit Discovery for P. Aeruginosa FabF, a Promising Target for Antibiotics
A new study from the University in Bergen may shed light on the comorbidities found in adults suffering from this rare disease.
Research conducted by ADHD researcher Berit Skretting Solberg shows a strong connection between ADHD in children and parents. The sons had the highest absolute risk, but the daughters had the highest relative risk.
2020 evolved into an annus horribilis for everyone, manifested by physical distancing and social isolation, disrupted work routines and for many, tragic loss of livelihood and loved ones.
Petri Kursula receive the prize for best teacher in preclinical medicine 2020.
Around 600 children are born with congenital heart disease in Norway each year. Little is known about the causes of congenital heart defects. A new international study involving researchers from University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital shows that the NAA15 protein can play an important role.
Carnosine plays an important roles as antioxidant, pH buffer, and neuromodulator and recently received increasing attention as biomarker for many disease states such as Alzheimer disease and Parkinson disease. The Neurotargeting group at the Department of Biomedicine discovered a novel enzyme, Glutamate Decarboxylase Like 1 (GADL1) that plays a role in carnosine production.
"Immunological, Molecular and Imaging Biomarkers of Malignant Progression in Brain Cancer: Improving Precision Neuro-Oncology"
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is the most common inherited neuropathy in humans, linked to mutations in dozens of different genes. Two of these genes encode the proteins GDAP1 and NDRG1. We have solved the crystal structures of these two proteins, in order to better understand their structure, function, and involvement in disease.
Researchers at the Department of Biomedicine focus on large RNA structures in bacteria as a target for new antibiotics. Read the latest review article on riboswitches.
The Biorecognition Unit wants to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :-)
The Norwegian Health Association supports the research lab around Helge Wiig who investigates if eating too much salt causes high blood pressure. Read a popular scientific article on forskning.no.
Gro Vatne Røsland is a researcher at the Department of Biomedicine and has written a popular scientific article summarizing current research regarding Vitamin D-intake and infectious diseases.
The SAFETY ZONE is a bright yellow wall featuring equipment you may need in case of an emergency. The wall has raised the level of laboratory safety at the Department and has therefore been awarded this year's work environment award from the Faculty of Medicine.
Ine and Emilie were attending a project course priming them for lab work. They ended up co-developing a method to quality control a cell model which is used by thousands of researchers worldwide.
