Plants have been used for 1000s of years in the treatment of human diseases, though this historical knowledge is often lost. Our interdisciplinary research group uses Nordic historic texts and archaeological remains as inspiration to ‘rediscover’ what plants have historically been used to treat disease.

Welcome to Oslo Life Science Conference 2021! Using covid-19 as an example, we focus on the role of life sciences in understanding and solving global societal challenges. What experiences have we gained one year after the pandemic started? Which research projects are implemented within the life sciences to prevent new pandemics in the future? What measures can we take to be prepared for a new global pandemic? And what efforts are taken to stop the covid-19 pandemic globally?

While philosophers have investigated the topic of consciousness for thousands of years, empirical research has only been a focus for the last decades. But in this time, what have we really learned about our internal experience of the world? We invite to a series of lectures focusing on how we investigate consciousness empirically, what we have discovered, and where the road goes next.

In the last decade, artificial intelligence has surpassed humans in among others the games of Go and Starcraft. Many researchers believe it's only a matter of time before we make an artificial intelligence that is smarter than humans in all areas. Most famous of these is Ray Kurzweil who predicts this will happen before the year 2050. But will this intelligence be conscious? What are the implications if it is or not? We invite to a panel discussion where these and other questions will be discussed.

The coronavirus caused the whole of Norway to shut down in the spring of 2020. What consequences has it had for the everyday life, leisure and household of most people? Has it had any effect on the climate and the economy? And what are the long-term consequences? When will life be like before the closure, or will it be?

Mental disorders are recognized as leading causes of disability and morbidity globally, and are among the costliest disorders to affect humans. The causal underpinnings of these disorders is a complex web of genetic, biological and psychosocial mechanisms. Recent advances in technology and computational techniques can help disentangle this complexity, leading to a further understanding of the conditions and subsequently better strategies for treatment and prevention.

The ultimate boundaries of human reproduction lie at the limited availability of egg and sperm. Laboratory-derived gametes may push these limits, but are we prepared for the consequences of this research? Would it do sufficient moral good? Is there a strong enough personal and societal need for genetically related families? Would it be safe for the child? Would it be technically feasible? The webinar will address these questions from the perspectives of philosophy, anthropology, medicine, and molecular biology.

We invite you to join scientists and philosophers from the UiO:Life Science convergence environment 3DR to discuss the clinical and biological challenges that come with the ethics of organ donation in Norway, and discover our source of inspiration to improve organ preservation for donation: the crucian carp inhabiting Norwegian ponds. This online seminar will include short presentations, a discussion and various activities (quizzes, polls, and Q&A sessions). The seminar will be held in Norwegian and is open to anyone interested in organ donation: How it is regulated and where we are at in organ transplantation research.

This event includes popular science talks by the research fellows of the ABINO project with expertise in biology, musicology, and physics. A musical interlude will explore the use of rhythms based on physiology. The event will end with a panel discussion among the ABINO senior scientists reflecting on the possibilities and challenges of working in such a radically interdisciplinary constellation. The event will be streamed live and filmed.
