On May 23 and 24, 2019, the world's leading fibrosis and cancer researchers met in Bergen at an international fibrosis conference on the topic "New tools to study the fibrotic stroma".
The structure of full-length phenylalanine hydroxylase in complex with the cofactor BH4 is presented in the most recent issue of PNAS. As the cofactor is also used as a therapy for PKU, this structure is of medical importance.
The candidate will give a trial lecture and defend her doctoral thesis with the title: “The Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Axl in Tumour Phenotyptic Plasticity and Acquired Resistance to Cancer Targeted- and Immunotherapy"
As the first lab in Norway, the NAT lab recently installed a HoloMonitor system for 3D live cell microscopy. This novel instrument allows us to spy on the cells in a gentle and non-invasive way.
Researchers from the lab of Aurora Martinez describe a novel mechanism for the degradation of enzymes involved in phenylketonuria and other neurometabolic disorders.
The candidate will give a trial lecture and defend her doctoral thesis with the title: “The role of AXL and the tumor microenvironment in cancer cell plasticity and therapy responses"
In Huntingtons Disease, patients suffer from cognitive deficits and psychiatric disturbance, and later also from a devastating loss of movement control. Researchers at the Department of Biomedicine have identified some of the molecular events that occur in the brain in Huntingtons Disease.
Cancer is a complex disease caused by a multitude of factors gone wrong in the cell. NAA10 may be one such factor. This is a protein that performs many different tasks, including the most common which is catalyzing the acetylation of cellular proteins. NAA10 can therefore be viewed as a ”Jack of all trades”-protein. For two decades it has been linked to cancer progression, but recent data puts... Read more
Adrian Drazic, post doctor at the Department of Biomedicine, is one of the recipients of this years award for outstanding young researchers by the Meltzer Foundation.
The candidate will give a trial lecture and defend his doctoral thesis with the title: “The Characterization of Disordered Membrane-Binding Proteins of Myelin: A Biophysical Approach"
A lecture on how to implement career development in PhD-training in the future.
A workshop on careers options, strategies & tactics for life scientists
Young research talent Nils Halberg gives a trial lecture for a faculty position in biomedicine.
"The role of AXL and the tumor microenvironment in cancer cell plasticity and therapy responses"
Professor Rolf Bjerkvig at the research group for translational cancer research explains how the researchers make miniature brains and investigate how the cells move in and out of tumor tissue
