Would you like to expand your experimental vocabulary, cross borders into neighboring disciplines, or gain some experimental experience to compliment your computational skills?
Computational medicine aims to apply methods from engineering, mathematics, and computational sciences to improve our understanding of disease mechanisms, and diagnosis, follow-up, and treatment of human disease in the clinic. In this seminar Prof. Arvid Lundervold will talk about training of a new generation life scientists and medical students in this interdisciplinary field.
Join the annual conference made for and by the research school members!
Control theory has been successfully applied in engineering to build stable and reliably behaving devices. How can concepts developed in control engineering help us understand regulation in biological systems and how to develop reliable, integrated medical devices? In this workshop we will present and discuss some of the existing and novel concepts of control theory and how they can be applied in biotechnology and medical engineering.
Computational approaches that can aid our understanding of cancer development are improving. Are we approaching the time when computer simulations could become a clinical tool in cancer treatment?
In conjunction with the 7th CCBIO Symposium Omid Farokzhad will deliver a Volterra lecture Tuesday May 14th titled "Perspectives on how to Translate Biomedical Research to Products and Cures" The lecture is held at Solstrand Hotel&Bad near Bergen and is open for everyone.
10 May 2019, Industrial PhD candidate Odd Martin Staal will publicly defend his PhD degree at NTNU.
Welcome to this guest lecture 9 May held by Professor Ali Cinar (Illinois Institute of Technology). He will visit NTNU, Trondheim as an opponent for Odd Martin Staal’s PhD defence, scheduled for 10 May.
Combining computational and experimental approaches, MIT-Professor Christopher Voigt has made outstanding contributions to the fields of synthetic biology and biological engineering. In the beginning of May he guests our Volterra Lecture Series in Oslo, Trondheim and Bergen, to offer his approach on programming cells.
A two day workshop with members of Digital Life research projects to foster mutual learning on responsible research and innovation in practice.
Join artists and scientists for an evening of exploration and discussion, where we will debate how to optimize the future!
How can more realistic mechanical and mechanistic descriptions of organisms and their interactions make ecological models more predictive and help us understand evolution of traits, their underlying genetics and the optimality trade-offs experienced by organisms? Prof. Øyvind Fiksen (Theoretical Ecology group, Department of Biosciences) will address these and other related questions at this breakfast seminar.
What comes next once you are comfortable with the syntax of a programming language or two, and have written some small programs for yourself? Once a project grows to a certain size, factors beyond the immediate programming task take more and more time, and the social aspects of software development become more important.
Do you want to use illustrations as an effective communication tool?
The first breakfast seminar this year will be about visual data science. We are very happy to announce that Prof. Helwig Hauser, PI of the visualization group at the Department of Informatics (UiB), will talk to us about this exciting topic.
University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital, BTO, and Digital Life Norway invites you to a seminar focusing on dilemmas arising when you are a researcher also doing innovation, in addition to the Whys and Hows concerning patenting and publishing.
In many ways the engine of the Digital Life ambition is useful models of living systems that can explain and predict their system behaviour. Critical and constructive discussion of modelling approaches is accordingly of key importance. We will therefore also this year arrange a workshop where this is in focus.
Friday 7 Dec 2018, APT member Konstanze Kölle will have her public PhD defence at NTNU.
Welcome to this guest lecture 6 December held by Dr Chiara Toffanin (University of Pavia, Italy). She will visit NTNU, Trondheim as an opponent for Konstanze Kölle’s PhD defence, scheduled for 7 December.
The November breakfast seminar will be about mathematical modelling of animal physiology and will be given by Assoc. Prof. Susanna Röblitz, who recently started her research group at the Computational Biology Unit.
The event will gather representatives from the centre, the centre's projects, and Research School to join a search conference shaping the future of DLN towards 2020 and beyond.
Lack of new antibiotics is a major threat to the global health. The two Digital Life projects INBioPharm and Digibiotics invite to a workshop to discuss different aspects, issues and current state of antibiotic discovery, development and production.
Professor Bonnie Berger is the Simons Professor of Mathematics at MIT, holds a joint appointment in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and serves as head of Computation and Biology group at MIT's Computer Science and AI Lab. Her recent work focuses on designing algorithms to gain biological insights from advances in automated data collection and the subsequent large data sets drawn from them. She works on a diverse set of problems, including Compressive Genomics, Network Inference, Structural Bioinformatics, Genomic Privacy, and Medical Genomics. Additionally, she collaborates closely with biologists in order to design experiments to maximally leverage the power of computation for biological explorations.
