Our graduated master candidates from biology and molecular biology were awarded a diploma and praise on February 11th. We are proud of the work they have done.
Congratulation to Boris Schmid on a Young Research Talent grant, and to Bastiaan Star and Sanne Boessenkool on becoming partners in a new Innovative Training Network (ITN).
Five new research projects to join Centre for Digital Life Norway. Professor Dirk Linke from The Departement of Bioscience is one of the new projectleaders.
UiO:Life Science will fund 40 educational summer research projects for students between April and September 2019. All students currently enrolled in a bachelor, master or relevant professional degree program at the University of Oslo are eligible to apply. The application form opened on this web page 15 January at 8 AM, and is now fully booked.
UiO:Life Science will fund educational summer research projects for 40 students between April and September 2019 for students currently enrolled in a bachelor, master or relevant professional degree program at UiO. We now invite you suggest projects for one or two students. The application deadline is 1 February 2019.
January 9th-11th the Research Bazaar will take place at UiO. Participate in workshops to learn digital tools and skills for scholars.
UiO:Life Science awarded our application for internationalization support formalizing a closer collaboration with Arvin Kumar. He will come to Oslo week 50.
For the first time UiO:Lifescience granted undergraduate students with a salary to perform a research project during their summer vacation 2018. CINPLA were lucky to grab 4 talented students in various projects from gene-editing by crisper to behavioral analysis.
Expanding the Open Ephys system to include animal tracking and behavior-based closed-loop stimulation extends the availability of high-quality, low-cost experimental setup within standardized data formats.
SPARK Norway is UiO:Life Science’s innovation programme for health-related life sciences. Meet three of the SPARKees in our new videos and get inspired to submit your application by 15 November.
At the University of Oslo (UiO), Research Bazaar will take place on January 9-11, 2019. The Call for workshops is now closed, see event for further details.
Congratulations to Milad Hobbi Mobarhan for defending his thesis "Computational tools for modeling, data storage, and education in Neuroscience" for the degree of PhD on Tuesday 4th September 2018
Det er uvanlig at to Nobelprisene går til forskere og tema, hvor en og samme professor på IBV er ekspert. Slik er det nemlig i år; professor Inger Sandlie arbeider innen begge områdene for disse to prisene.
At a meeting for all CEES members, Professor Kjetill S. Jakobsen was introduced as the new Chair of CEES by the Head of the Department of Biosciences, Rein Aasland.
UiO:Life Science hopes to see Norwegian finalists in the pitch competition at the tech conference SLUSH in Helsinki on 5 December. The winner is granted 30 000 euros. Life science students and researchers in startups or pre-startups are welcome to apply before 1 October at 12:00.
A major challenge in computational neuroscience is to specify the often large number of parameters that define neuron and neural network models. Many of these parameters have an inherent variability, and some are even actively regulated and change with time.
The application deadline for this call was 15 November 2018. We received 23 applications within the deadline. Finalists will be selected medio December 2018. They will be invited to pitch projects before our external SPARK review panel primo January 2019. A new call will be out in the fall 2019.
At present UiO:Life Science funds seven convergence environments that address major challenges within life sciences related to health and environment/sustainable growth. A new application round starts now. Researchers from all units at UiO are welcome to participate.
Nils Chr. Stenseth will become a strategic adviser at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences after leaving as head of the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the Department of Biosciences.
Six new teams have been admitted to UiO´s innovation programme SPARK Norway. They will develop their ideas within health-related life sciences for the benefit of patients and society.
Hva kan fysikere bidra med i hjerneforskning? Ph.D student Milad H. Mobarhan gir elever fra den videregående skole et innblikk i dette i sitt glimrende foredrag under universitetets åpen dag. Se forelesningen her.
We're excited to find our paper on perineuronal nets and longterm memories picked by the editors in PNAS to be highlighted in this issue. They have written an excellent recap of our paper.
The new study "Human ectoparasites and the spread of plague in Europe during the Second Pandemic" by Katharine R. Dean et al. (PNAS, 2018) receives international as well as national attention with its "provocative" findings. Find links to the articles here!
Society for Neuroscience journals (JNeurosci and eNeuro) published more than 1,150 research manuscripts in 2017. Among the top 10 articles saved to Mendeley is our paper on perineuronal nets in hippocampus, entorhinal cortex and visual cortex.
How the brain is able to store memories over long periods of time has been a persistent mystery to neuroscientists. In a new study, researchers from the Centre for Integrative Neuroplasticity (CINPLA) at the University of Oslo show that long-lived extracellular matrix molecules called perineuronal nets are essential for distant memories.
The new research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that removal of the nets disrupts distant but not recent memories.
