NSHG-PM meetings in genomics and COVID-19

Dear researchers at K2,

I want to draw your attention to a meeting – Nordic Society for Human Genetics and Prevision Medicine. This society aims to gather researchers in the Nordic countries interested in genomics and other omics, and to build infrastructure to perform research in all cohorts and biobanks totaling some 29 million inhabitants.

The meeting is digital and November 8-9 hosted by Mark Daly (Director for FINNGENE, PI at MGH). There is also a workshop on COVID-19 November 4 chaired by Kári Stefánsson (Director for DeCode Genetics) and Camilla Stoltenberg (Director for NIPH).

Submission deadlines for both meetings are October 8.

It’s worth noting that exceptional abstracts will be offered speaking slots and we will give financial prizes to top posters by young investigators.

Best,
Pål R. Njølstad

Editorial

OSCE and application deadline for status as Excellent Teacher

The White Paper «Quality Culture in Higher Education» emphasized that all Norwegian universities must establish a pedagogical qualification framework. The intention with a pedagogical qualification framework is to inspire and reward teachers and academic communities for systematic work in educational development. At MED, the status as Excellent Teacher leads to a permanent salary raise as well as membership in a “pedagogical academy” of excellent teachers at the faculty. Basic pedagogical qualification is required. There is now a new application deadline for status as Excellent Teacher. It is important to read and address the criteria on which the evaluation of the applications is based. Please do not hesitate to contact me at mette.vesterhus@uib.no if you consider submitting an application or have questions. We hope that some of our skilled and enthusiastic teachers will submit well-written applications which will win this award!

Application deadline: November 1st

OSCE 12 will be arranged on December 8th, and planning is well under way. The responsible persons for subjects that are part of the exam this year are alerted and will recruit sensors. The administration will reach out to administrative and technical staff and request their participation. OSCE is important and require teamwork and team spirit. We expect that everybody responds to requests with a positive attitude. We want to thank all of you who have contributed in previous years – and those of you who are contributing to OSCE 12 this December!

Peder Sather Center (PSC) is a consortium between UC Berkeley and key Norwegian universities including UoB. PSC offers seed funding for research collaboration and exchange of researchers across the Atlantic. There is no medical faculty at UC Berkeley, which might explain why The faculty of Medicine has had few projects related to PSC. However, there are still possibilities for collaboration for instance with research groups within AI and biomedicine.

You apply directly to PSC. More information and link to application form is found:
