Dear all of you!

I will use this week’s leader to remind you of two things: RETTE and the teaching day.

I am responsible to follow-up projects at K2 in RETTE, therefore I just have to ask everyone to check that all the necessary information has been transferred from REK (and as of today there are some projects that require change in RETTE). When you log in to the system (https://rette.app.uib.no/), you will have the opportunity to fill in more information about the project and answer some questions and then confirm the project. It is the project managers who are responsible for doing this.

RETTE was established by UiB to comply with GDPR and to ensure that key legislation is followed. UiB shall have an overview and control of all research projects and student assignments that process personal data. Medical/health research projects need approval from REK. Some projects have a consulting duty with the data protection officer, and NSD (Norwegian Centre for Research Data) can help to assess privacy. After assessment or approval, information from NSD and REK is transferred to RETTE.

Finally, I want to remind all of you of The Teaching Day 18 May at 12-15:15 which I hope many will attend. The program for the day can be found in K2nytt today. Remember to sign up:


Have a nice weekend!

CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium May 12, Aud Glasblokkene (incl. lunch) and in ZOOM.

Dear all,

May boasts of great CCBIO events, including the upcoming CCBIO Junior Scientist Symposium May 12, 2022 (deadline May 9 at 11.00 for onsite participation). Open for all!

We are very excited that Henriette Christie Ertsås (Forskning Til Folket) will be the keynote presenter this time, asking if scientific discovery can ever be compatible with the reigning publishing model, without science and society falling prey. Local junior researchers will present topics related to breast cancer, including how AGR2 relates to aggressive features and the relationship between tumor hypoxia and metastasis. And maybe we will learn where to find fantastic antibodies against the influenza virus?

We are very pleased to be able to meet in person, but the symposium will also be open for digital attendance. Please register within May 9th at 11.00 for those of you who want to attend in person. There is no registration deadline for digital attendance.

When: May 12, 2022, 09:00-12:45 (Norwegian time)

Where: Auditorium Glasblokkene (Haukelandsbakken 15), and also available in Zoom (logon details will be sent to registered participants)

Program: can be found here.

Registration: At ccbiojuss.no (Also even if you have registered for CCBIO901 in Studentweb.)

General information: More information about the Junior Scientist Symposia can be found here.

ECTS: Part of CCBIO901, with 3 credits (participation in the program through 2 terms.) All are however welcome for non-ECTS drop-in on each individual symposium. Perhaps you spot an interesting topic? Just remember to register!

Any questions can be addressed to chairs Maria and Hanna.

Feel free to forward this invitation as all are welcome! (Not restricted to junior scientists.)

With best regards

Datathon in Bergen / Eitri Medical Incubator 16. – 19. September

Eitri Medical Datathon 2022 is an effort to unleash the potential of data in healthcare and takes place from September 16th to 19th 2022 at Eitri in Bergen, Norway.

Leo Celi from MIT will help facilitate the workshop/datathon. Celi is best known for bringing together clinicians and data scientists to collect and analyze data routinely collected during the healthcare process.

The aim of the Eitri datathon is to utilize previously admitted patients’ data  from the emergency room to answer important clinical research questions.

“An equally important aim is to bring together clinicians, data scientist, engineers, industry, and investors for interdisciplinary collaboration aiming to provide better healthcare in the Bergen Hospital, and to the world”, says Director of Eitri, Torleif Markussen Lunde.

Key stakeholders from Haukeland Hospital, HVL, University of Bergen, Curie and Eureka student organizations, have agreed to participate. Clinicians, students, industry, and professors are invited to participate, nationally and internationally.
