UiB’s COVID-19 Lockdown meant that the Department’s Annual gathering was held virtually via ZOOM rather than face-to-face. Despite this – or maybe because of this – there were up to 100 people attending!
Have you ever considered doing a research stay abroad to broaden your scientific horizon? Postdoctor Sylvia Varland recently returned from a 2-year research stay at University of Toronto. Learn more about her scientific adventure and cultural experiences.
Here are the award winners of Faculty Day 2020!
Mitochondrial failure contributes to Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, study suggests.
A new study at the Department of Clinical Medicine and Haukeland University Hospital unfolds important new knowledge about altered gene regulation in Parkinson’s disease.
Wakisa Mulwafu became interesting in ear and hearing issues when he was training as a medical doctor. He travelled to South Africa to become an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist, and returned to Malawi to build up ENT services in the country.
CISMAC has prepared its Annual Report for 2019. Highlighting the year’s activity at the Centre for Research Excellence, the report also begins to consider future directions for the Centre, after the end of the 10-year funding period.
Halvor Sommerfelt and Cecilie Svanes have been awarded the Faculty of Medicine’s Publication and Communications Prizes, respectively, for 2019.
Chr. Michelsen Institute and the University of Bergen have a long-standing agreement to strengthen development-related research in Bergen. We now invite applications for collaboration between our two institutions. Deadline 20 June, 2020.
CIH’s Annual Report gives the Centre a chance to reflect on its activities over the past year. The Centre vision provides a “red thread” through the research, networking, education and publication activity.
The CCBIO International Faculty was established to support the Centre through active collaborations and strategic advice. In addition to the 13 already affiliated members, we have now recruited a new member, Marta Bertolaso from Rome, Italy, and have the pleasure of presenting her and her unique contribution to CCBIO.

Actin is the most abundant protein in human cells and is involved in numerous functions including steering cellular architecture, cell motility and cell division. Recently, UiB researchers identified NAA80 as a long-sought actin regulator. Now, the structure of NAA80 bound to actin and profilin reveals its mechanism of action.
Exosomes released from the primary tumour into circulation have been documented to promote pre-metastatic niche formation. We have identified a miRNA in exosomes from melanoma brain metastases that can play a vital role in this process. Knock-down (KD) of this miRNA results in an inhibition of brain metastatic growth. We are in the process of identifying potential drugs inhibiting the expression... Read more
