Seminarserie Senter for ernæring, onsdag 20. november

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. november kl. 14.30-15.30

Sted: Auditorium 4, BB-bygget, Jonas Lies vei 91

Obesity and cancer

Speaker: Nils Halberg

Moderator: Simon E. Nitter Dankel

Dr. Halberg completed his graduate studies at the University of Copenhagen in 2009. Working in the laboratory of Dr. Philipp Scherer at the UT Southwestern Medical Center he studied the functional role of hypoxia and fibrosis in obese white adipose tissue. He did postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Dr. Sohail Tavazoie at the Rockefeller University studying the mechanisms of metastatic secretory programs in breast cancer. In 2015, he moved to the University of Bergen to start his academic laboratory in the Department of Biomedicine. His laboratory seeks to better our understanding of the mechanistic connection between obesity and cancer.

Obesity and overweight is consistently linked to tumor initiation and progression across 13 tumors types. This currently rank obesity as the second leading preventable cause of cancer right behind smoking. Although the epidemiological evidence is overwhelming the cellular mechanisms behind the link between obesity and cancer has been elusive. We propose a model wherein cancer cell adaptation to an obese environment leads to a cell differentiation towards a cancer stem cell phenotype through chromatin remodeling.

(English) European Society for Clinical Cell analysis

This year the European Society for Clinical Cell analysis will be held in Bergen 18-21 September.  This is the perfect opportunity to for us in Bergen to join.
The conference will be interesting for both researches and medical staff, with lecture on new developments in cytometry, mass cytometry, immunology, hematology and much more.

Here for more information.

Reminder: Digital Life 2019

The Digital Life 2019 conference is coming up very soon. There are very few participants from UiB.

The conference will be important to learn about activities in the centre that could also be beneficial for your partner project and perhaps become a source for future collaborations. We have available funding in the centre for research activities between projects.

We hope that researchers from CCBIO will participate in Tromsø. It is free for participants of DLN partner projects to attend if they register within 22. August. It is also still possible to participate with a poster presentation, but the abstract must then be sent to Marie.

The DL Research School still have a few available travel support for DL2019, but be quick…

  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.

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) CCBIO Jr Scientist Symposium February 14th

Dear all,

We are delighted to invite you to the upcoming CCBIO Jr Scientist Symposium, February 14th. Professor Inge Jonassen will give an inspirational lecture where he will present his educational path from a young aspiring student to professor and the senior position he now holds. Further, we will hear about professor Jonassen’s ongoing research and the new center for data science CEDAS at the University of Bergen. As increasingly more research involves bioinformatics and handling of big data, this lecture should be relevant for most PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.

In addition, local PhD students and Post-docs will present their research on topics including ethics in medicine (Tranvåg), mechanisms of AXL signaling (D’mello Peters, Hellesøy) and the importance of stromal cells in cancer (Dongre, Kjølle).

Time: Thursday February 14th 2019 at 10.00-14.00.

Where: Conference room 109F, BB-building (opposite the auditoria)
