- Making people from the tech fields and the clinical fields merge efforts, is vital to improve patient treatment
iEarth becomes one of the Norwegian Centres of Excellence in Education. The University of Bergen now hosts two of the prestigious centres that focus on innovative and forward-looking education.
During the last months I have been thinking about how to communicate my PhD project to the general public. As a scientist, I explain my work with graphs and figures. But a figure which is easy to understand to my colleagues or peer reviewers, will find it hard to attract the attention of someone outside science.
UiB and Imperial College researchers have developed a tool which predicts how progressive diseases like cancer and malaria develop in individual patients. In addition, the tool uncovers how bacteria develop resistance to certain drugs.
During the coldest years of the last ice-age the ice cap reached the British Isles and Polen. New research has revealed that an ice-free green spot existed further north - on a penisula close to Spitsbergen.
MSc. Silje Smith-Johnsen ved Institutt for geovitenskap og Bjerknessenteret for klimaforskning disputerte i dag med avhandlingen «Dynamics of the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream: the role of geothermal heat and subglacial hydrology».
Mashzhan Akzhigit , PhD student and Musabekov Zhorabek, master student at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University make their first research visit to University of Bergen under the Eurasian Framework. Welcome!
An international and multidisciplinary team of 36 scientists and engineers, with the assistance of the officers and crew of the vessel, conducted a multidisciplinary investigation of deep (4000 m) hydrothermal vents under permanent ice cover in the Arctic.
The world’s sea level was at one time ten meters higher than today. Researchers have now discovered where the water came from.

Edoardo Mandolini, will work on his master thesis focussing on the anaerobic thermophilic bacterium Fervidobacterium pennivorans, named strain Ker, isolated from a terrestrial hot-spring in Tajikistan.
In the mid-latitudes the weather changes quickly. Changing winds influence the heat exchange between the atmosphere and the ocean. A new study by Fumiaki Ogawa and Thomas Spengler shows how important it is to consider short-term phenomena like extratropical cyclones and cold air outbreaks when calculating air-sea fluxes. Read their account below.
In a number of European countries, there is a clear imbalance between long-term disaster risk reduction and short-term preparation, according to a new study. With increasing amounts of data, there is a potential for investments in long-term reduction measures, but data availability is not enough. Jenny Sjåstad Hagen, co-author of the study, writes about the importance of data interoperability.
Lauritzen is recognized for seminal and ongoing contributions to the field of speleothem science
For two intense weeks,students and lecturers from around the world gathered in the small town of Yosemite National Park to discuss climate science as part of the ACDC summer school
The national conference GEOFAREDAGEN ("GEO HAZARDS DAY") gathers the current and future geoscientists; Students, educators and people working on risks associated with natural and geological processes.
Had it not been for the Trond Mohn Foundation, Bodil Holst would have worked as a patent consultant in Munich. Thanks to a recruitment grant in 2007, however, she is now one of the most innovative researchers at the University of Bergen.
