The online exhibition presents works-in-process of young scientists from the EvoCELL network. The researchers are studying animal evolution from a cellular perspective, by applying cutting-edge technologies to uncover a previously invisible world.
The University of Bergen has produced the special Sustainable Ocean Series, which has now been translated into all six official United Nations languages, spoken by almost three billion people daily.
UiB law scholar Joanna Siekiera spoke on ocean science diplomacy as part of the reunion of the 2020 Warsaw Science Diplomacy School.
The Norad supported project “Samaki”, which means fish in Swahili, unites Norwegian researchers with colleagues in Tanzania to study how small-scale fisheries are the key to combat malnutrition. This is part of a bigger picture in the fight for scarce resources and on the question whether small fish should be used as food for humans or become fish food?
Hallvard Moe, Pawel Burkhardt, Vadim Kimmelman, and Carlo Koos have received UiB's first ERC grants from Horizon Europe.
Linguistics professor Vadim Kimmelman receives high-level funding from the EU. Now he will be able to build a research team and explore different properties in five different sign languages.
From sunflowers to starfish, symmetry appears everywhere in biology. This isn’t just true for body plans – the molecular machines keeping our cells alive are also strikingly symmetric. But why? Does evolution have a built-in preference for symmetry?
UiB research shows that being born to term with a weight lower than 3,5 kilos is related to a higher risk of developing neurodevelopmental problems such as cerebral palsy and autism.
The results of a new clinical trial, published in the peer-reviewed journal Cell Metabolism, show that oral intake of nicotinamide riboside (NR) enhances NAD-metabolism in the brain of individuals with Parkinson’s disease, and shows promise as a potential therapy.
Cutting-edge technology makes it possible for scientists to retrieve DNA recovered decades ago. An international team of researchers, including scientists from SapienCE, were able to isolate ancient DNA from blocks of sediment embedded in plastic resin commonly used for micromorphological analyses.
Researchers at UiB have developed a calculator that can estimate how many life years you could gain by modifications in diet patterns.
Obesity increases the risk of developing more than a dozen types of cancer. Researchers from the Department of Medicine (UiB) have no shown that lipids associated with obesity makes the cancer cell more aggressive.
In a recent editorial, UiB professor Jeroen van der Sluijs and co-editors encourage entomologists to join other scientists, legislators and policymakers in addressing and countering pollinator decline.
Linguist Vadim Kimmelman is one of two young, outstanding researchers in Norway who will participate in the Young CAS Fellow programme. He will do research on sign linguistics and whole‐entity classifiers.
What can society and global organizations do better to stop right-wing extremist radicalization and terrorist content online?
Professor Charalampos Tzoulis stresses that neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and ALS, represent a global health emergency that can only be tackled through extensive research.
UNESCO has announced Postdoctoral fellow Alicia May Donnellan Barraclough as one of five global Young Spokespeople for its Man and Biosphere programme.
