Managing ecosystems in an increasingly variable world
The LIPCHEM group combines synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and total organic synthesis to study the chemistry and biology of lipids. We are currently involved in the synthesis of specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs), i.e. protectins, resolvins and maresins and their analogs, as well as the individual biochemical pathways involved in the formation of the SPMs. In addition, we have contributed to the development of new methodology within synthetic organic chemistry, and the identification of new lead compounds in medicinal chemistry projects targeting diseases such as cancer. These life science oriented projects are conducts in collaboration with groups both abroad and in Norway (see below).
The ClimFun project, funded by the Research Council of Norway, will increase our understanding about how fungi respond to global change.
Green Growth based on Marine Resources: Ecological and Socio-Economic Constraints
Creating a sustainable basis for aquaculture and fisheries management of Atlantic salmon and cod by studying the genetic basis
Instabilities and turbulence in the polar ionosphere studied with the integrated, multi-scale 4D (3D in space and time) experimental, theoretical, and modelling approach.
The ambition of this project is to set the scene for a number of new research directions based on FEEC by giving ground-breaking contributions to its foundation. The aim is also to use FEEC as a tool, or a guideline, to extend the foundation of numerical PDE to a variety of problems for which this foundation does not exist.
The Research Council of Norway has funded the project “Vortex flows and magnetic tornadoes on the Sun and cool stars” for the period 2013 to 2017. The aim of the VORTEX project is the comprehensive study of vortex flows and magnetic tornadoes on the Sun and other stars.
Bringing together evolution and ecology through the Red Queen Perspective
Nuclear physics has as its objective the investigation and understanding of nuclei, which are the hearts of atoms and the place where almost all mass of visible matter resides. The rules of nuclear binding determine the number of stable isotopes and their relative abundance in the world we live. Nuclei are fermion systems comprising from a few to hundred of neutrons and protons. The systems are small enough to exhibit sharp quantum states, but also large enough to show collective degrees of freedom, like vibrations and rotations.
