UCMR together with UCMR visiting research receive major NIH grant to study tuberculosis and antibiotic resistance

[2018-09-10] Fredrik Almqvist, Professor in organic chemistry at Umeå University, and his American research colleague Christina Stallings, and UCMR visiting researcher receive SEK 24 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for research on combating infections of the most common type of tuberculosis bacteria.

– It's absolutely amazing! A grant of this size really makes a difference and gives us the endurance that is needed to follow up on our previous research results. An added value is of course that it connects our respective universities in a valuable way, and perhaps opens new paths for other researchers to build similar relationships, says Fredrik Almqvist, Professor at the Department of chemistry at Umeå University

UCMR Scientific Ambassadors honored on the UCMR DAY 2018

UCMR Scientific Ambassadors2 lr[2018-02-06] Best talk and posters presented by PhD students and postdocs were awarded with "UCMR Scientific Ambassador 2018" during the UCMR DAY 2018.

UCMR started the new year with the centre's annual update, the UCMR DAY, which was organised on 11th January. More than 140 scientists participated, including external guests and collaborators from Karolinska Institute, and University of Tromsø, Norway. The programme covered several novelities. Instead of a full day programme with talks and poster presentations, the afternoon of the UCMR was dedicated to interaction activities. In two poster sessions 45 posters were presented and the short coffee break was then followed by two sessions with round table discussions. The topics for the fifteen discussion groups highlighted research areas as well as infrastructures novel techniques/methods. Vivid discussions took place in separate meeting rooms and could hardly being interrupted for a mingle and refreshment. With continued discussions about present and future activities for UCMR, the 9th UCMR DAY finished in the late evening.

Two Nordic foundations support a network in Cryo-EM, a Nobel Prize–winning technology

IMG 6721 EMD croppedA new Swedish-Danish research alliance wants to advance understanding of how biological molecules look and behave. With support from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Novo Nordisk Foundation, scientists at four universities in Sweden and Denmark will join forces to create a Nordic network in cryoelectron microscopy, whose developers were awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The CryoNet network will bring together experts in cryoelectron microscopy at universities in Aarhus, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Umeå. A Swedish- Danish partnership between the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Novo Nordisk Foundation will fund the network. Each foundation has awarded a grant of €1 million over 4 years for CryoNet.
