2012 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine Shinya Yamanaka is visiting UiO, are you coming too? Students and young scientists are especially invited.
Yamanaka will give a lecture about a new era of medicine with induced pluripotent stem cells and participate in a panel discussion about the ethical aspects of stem cell therapy.
Time and place: Sep. 6, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM and panel discussion from 12:00 to 1:00 PM, Blindern Campus
Yamanaka was the first to demonstrate that mature cells, like skin cells could be reprogrammed directly to so called induced pluripotent stem cells - iPS cells or iPSCs - that is cells that are able to develop into all different kinds of cells. Pluripotent stem cells have been e...
Wristwatches are not allowed during school examinations from 18th of April at the university.
Wristwatches must henceforth be put away in bags, jackets or the like together with cell phones, MP3 players and other electronic equipment. During a school examination, an available wristwatch may henceforth be considered as attempted cheating on par with the use of other illegal aids.
There will be visible clocks in all examination rooms, so that the candidates are able to keep track of time. By digital examination, it is also possible to keep track of time on the computer.

Welcome to The Ethics of Testing Second Best Treatments in Developing Countries
Open guest lecture by Ezekiel J. Emanuel. The event starts with a reception at 2:45 PM. There will be light refreshments and a chance to network and mingle. The guest lecture starts at 3:30 PM. Registration before August 18.
Does everyone deserve the world's highest quality health tests and treatments? Is it ever ethical to provide people with less effective or more toxic care? Similarly, is the Declaration of Helsinki right in requiring all new interventions be tested against the world's "best proven intervention(s)"? What about the WHO, which provides conflicting advice?
Despite decades of debate, these questions, and the larger dilemma of health care quality, remain unsolved. Through examination of such cases as anti-retroviral treatment for HIV/AIDS and cervical cancer screening, Dr. Emanuel will defend the controversial position that it can be et...
The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Oslo has made a short
film about epigenetics, and about how two identical twins can end up with two different personalities.
Is it the environment or genes? Or both?
The Faculty of Medicine wishes to encourage good dissemination of
research that is easy and understandable in teaching.
A project group from the Faculty of Medicine is therefore presenting a new way of merging research and teaching.
