UiO:RealArt – A New Convergence Environment at UiO!

We are excited to announce that UiO:RealArt, led by PharmaTox professor Hedvig Nordeng in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of researchers, has been appointed as a new convergence environment at the University of Oslo! 

On November 10, 2021, six new convergence environments at the University of Oslo (UiO) were announced. Such environments are dedicated to perform "beyond state-of-the-art" science, by recruiting and developing research talents, and promoting innovation within the life sciences. 

One of the convergence environments was UiO:RealArt, led by PharmaTox professor Hedvig Nordeng. With a multidisciplinary team of researchers, UiO:RealArt will use machine learning on health data and simulated data to understand the causal relationship between medication use in pregnancy and child development.
