The so-called NKCC1 protein is found throughout the human body where it has important functions in organs that process fluids or perform neurotransmission. A Danish research team has now determined a three-dimensional atomic structure of the NKCC1 protein, which supports future work to identify novel compounds that interfere with NKCC1 function. Such compounds may help in, for example, kidney and brain disorders.
NCMM Group Leader Dr Emma Haapaniemi will collaborate with centre leaders and NCMM Associate Investigators Prof Johanna Olweus and Prof Karl-Johan Malmberg as part of the new centre, Precision Immunotherapy Alliance (PRIMA).
A Finnish-led international research team has discovered novel gene variants that increase the risk of a rare but severe lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The results also demonstrate notable genetic similarities with susceptibility to severe COVID-19 infection.
For the first time, researchers at Umeå University can now show how the dreaded poliovirus behaves when it takes over an infected cell and tricks the cell into producing new virus particles. Polio was thought to be almost eradicated, but infection has now been rediscovered in London and New York.
Meet DANDRITE Group Leader, Taro Kitazawa, and learn how he is looking for epigenetic and transcriptional mechanisms that underlie neuroplasticity.
Join us for an introduction to modeling large, complex datasets with deep learning with Leo Parts, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
In this two half-day, hands-on workshop, group leaders and other senior researchers with company projects teach the do's and don'ts of company…
