Research for the students

The students at the faculty want to have more contact with researchers and academic life. A portal where students can get in touch with us researchers at the departments is therefore being established at the faculty. It is important that more researchers, from PhD-level up to professor, sign up for this portal so that we can reach out to many students. I encourage everyone to participate, see more details about this here.

Enjoy the weekend!

Broegelmann lecture

Dear all,

This year’s Broegelmann lecture will be held the 30th May. It is given by Professor Marie Wahren Herlenius, Professor at KI and Professor II at UiB. She has a longstanding interest in Sjögren’s syndrome and has used Sjögren’s patient material to dissect underlying molecular mechanisms of sexual dimorphism in autoimmune diseases. We can look forward to an interesting seminar!

Best regards,


Dear Mentimeter user at UiB

As previously announced, a basic course will be arranged on June 8., which will be repeated on August 23., and a course for advanced students on June 15., which will be repeated on August 30., all between 1000-1100 hrs. Stina Nilsson Helander from Mentimeter will guide us through the course, and will go through everything you need to know to start with Mentimeter. Stina is from Sweden and there will be an opportunity to ask questions in both Norwegian and English both course days. You can ask along the way, and she will also be available for 15 minutes afterwards if any questions.

I work as a research and education consultant, Ph.D.-Coordinator, and study advisor at K2. In practice, this means that I manage most of the work around dissertations and mid-term evaluations. In addition, I have other task in the administration in K2.

What I like best about my job are my colleagues and the good working environment. We are a nice bunch who work for the workplace to bee as good as possible for both candidates and employees at UiB.
Right now I am working on coordinating the semesters final dissertations, so that everyone who is going to defend their thesis before the summer, gets what they need from hotels, dinners, flowers, lunch, auditoriums, robes, folders, messages, signatures etc.

I am lucky to be able to participate in the education of tomorrow`s researchers. It is very fun to collaborate with professionally skilled colleagues and there are always exciting new tasks to get better at!

The Mission Cancer calls 2022 are now open:
Improving and upscaling primary prevention of cancer through implementation research
Strengthening research capacities of Comprehensive Cancer Infrastructures
Pragmatic clinical trials to optimise treatments for patients with refractory cancers
Towards the creation of a European Cancer Patient Digital Centre
