Speaker: Marina Wiklander, PhD
Date: 08.05.2019
Time: 08:30 – 12.00

Location: Thormøhlensgt 55 (N-terminalen, romnr. 520B1), 5.etg., Bioblokken 

  1. Cell Identity and Authentication: What’s in your flask?
    Cell line misidentification is one of the greatest threats to the validity of research in the 21st century. With cell culture key to most life science research it is vitally important that any practitioner of cell culture is aware of the magnitude of the problem and be able to employ resources and strategies to ensure valid results.

  2. Trouble Shooting in Cell Culture
    Overview of the global cell culture process, where and why problems could be encountered (poor growth and viability, low adherence, mycoplasma detection, phenotypic drift). A chance for customers to “share their problems”.

  3. Moving from 2D to 3D cell culture?: 3D Neural Stem Cell Models of Alzheimer’s Disease
    Introduction of 3D cell culture technologies provided us with improved model for cellular research for drug discovery and other medical applications. Combination of 3D cell technology with stem cell research helped us to establish a relevant disease model in order to understand the pathology of the dementia and also improve the development of drugs.Based on publication by Kim et. al who created a three-dimensional (3D) human neural stem cell model of Alzheimer’s disease, we would like to introduce this model as a valuable tool to study age-related Alzheimer’s dementia as well as other neurodegenerative disorders.

Seminarserie Senter of ernæring, onsdag 20. mars

Senter for ernæring har gleden av å invitere til et nytt seminar i vår seminarrekke. Serien tar opp sentrale utfordringer innen ernæring og helse.

Tid: Onsdag 20. mars kl. 13.30-15.30

Sted: Auditorium 4, BB-bygget, Jonas Lies vei

Dietary assessment: Challenges and future directions & Biomarkers for dietary intake
Speakers: Dr. Sharon Kirkpatrick and professor Jutta Dierkes

Dietary assessment: Challenges and future directions
In nutritional research, we depend on self-reported dietary data to be able to study associations between diet and health. These data have many limitations, and it is challenging to gather precise dietary data. Several investigators even clams that self-reported data is so unreliable that it cannot be used in research. But is it really the case?

Dr. Sharon Kirkpatrick leads a public health nutrition research program based at the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo in Canada. Her research primarily focuses on understanding dietary patterns in populations and influences on these patterns, using a systems thinking lens to consider the array of factors at play. Dr. Kirkpatrick also has longstanding interests in food access among marginalized populations. She was named a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics in 2017 and 2018, and has received merit awards from the National Institutes of Health and the University of Waterloo.

Biomarkers for dietary intake
Biomarkers for dietary intake could be a tool for limiting misclassification in nutrition research where self-reported dietary intake data are used, thus biomarkers are extensively used in research today. But are they reliable?

Jutta Dierkes is professor in Clinical Nutrition at the Department of Clinical Medicine at the University of Bergen. She is the chairman of the board of the Mohn Nutrition Research Lab, and also the chariman of the program committee for nutrition at the Faculty of Medicine.

Nutrition Care Process (NCP). Bruk i klinikk og forskning

Nutrition Care Process (NCP) er en arbeidsprosess og terminologi for klinisk ernæring. Metoden ble etablert i 2003 som et resultat av flere tiårs arbeid som startet i USA på 70-tallet. Dagens versjon har 1649 termer som er organisert i områdene kartlegging, ernæringsdiagnoser og ernæringsintervensjon. NCP er en systematisk prosess som beskriver hvordan kliniske ernæringsfysiologer utfører ernæringsbehandling og er utformet for å gi struktur og kvalitet av denne. NCP fremmer kritisk tenkning og er et verktøy for å måle resultat av ernæringsbehandling. Terminologien er like anvendelig i forskning som i klinisk arbeid.

Lene Thoresen er klinisk ernæringsfysiolog ved Kreftklinikken på St. Olavs hospital og har en bistilling på Nasjonal kompetansetjeneste for sykdomsrelatert underernæring, OUS. Hun leder Arbeidsgruppen for profesjonell praksis – terminologi og metode i Kliniske ernæringsfysiologers forening (KEFF), deltar i The International Nutrition Care Process and Terminology Implementation Survey (INIS) og er representert i «Faglig referansegruppe for helsefaglige kodeverk. Indremedisin og ikke-kirurgiske fagområder», Direktoratet for eHelse. Siden 2018 har hun ledet Programgruppen for klinisk ernæringsfysiologutdanningen i Kunnskapsdepartementet.

(English) Reminder: Lunch-to-lunch CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium Nov. 19-20

Welcome to a special and extended CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium at Panorama Hotel & Resort at Sotra, just outside Bergen. This time we will host a lunch-to-lunch symposium from Monday 19th– Tuesday 20th of November. The CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium is a forum to practice presenting projects, engaging in scientific discussions and interact with like-minded peers. In addition, to enjoy excellent and interesting scientific presentations.

The symposium will start with a delicious lunch, before proceeding with an excellent academic and scientific program, including an inspirational lecture by the experienced scientist, professor and vice dean of doctoral education at our faculty, Roland Jonsson.  We will focus on how to improve scientific presentation skills, both through illustrations and orally, in the workshop; “How to make great figures and present your work in 3 minutes”. Here you will get an overview of “do’s” and “don’ts” from the experts. We will also be inspired by previous organizers of CCBIO JUSS who will give us ideas on the different aspects of life in academia.

Day two will bring research insights and inspiration from Professor Stein Ove Døskeland and his 45 years of research, and Researcher Nils Halberg, representing a young investigator leading an established research lab.

As always, there will be exciting scientific presentations from CCBIO junior scientists, both days, and if you have work that you would like to present, you may nominate yourself upon registration.
