Dear all

We are happy to invite you to the CCBIO course CCBIO904 – Biomarkers and tumor biology in clinical practice, April 20-22, 2020.

CCBIO904 covers tumor biological aspects important for the understanding of why cancer develops and which mechanisms are important for tumor growth, metastases and morbidity in patients. This 4 ECTS course covers broad tumor biological topics that are important for understanding how cancer occurs, the mechanisms that control tumor growth, proliferation and morbidity. The course will focus especially on tumor biological changes that may have or already have significance for personalized cancer treatment and clinical trial studies of new diagnostics and treatment.

When: April 20-22, 2020

Where: Aud. B301, Haukeland University Hospital, Main building 3rd floor the first 2 days, and last day: Olavsalen, old main building.

Program: Preliminary program: available here. (Subject to changes)

Registration: is open, please use this link: https://skjemaker.app.uib.no/view.php?id=7676350

PhD Career Day 2020 – February 19th

The career day for PhD-candidates and post docs has become a regular event on the agenda of the Faculty of Medicine. This year we have invited a professional career consultant from the University of Aarhus, and want to look into innovation as a career opportunity. As usual, we will also hear from former PhD-candidates who now have exciting jobs and in the afternoon there will be three parallel workshops on skills that are useful for your future career.

More information about the program here.

The Faculty of Medicine covers the participation fees (so its free for you), but please register for lunch and the workshops.

Registration can be done here.


Karrieredagen for ph.d.-kandidater og postdoktorer har blitt et fast arrangement på dagsordenen for Det medisinske fakultet. I år har vi invitert en profesjonell karrierekonsulent fra Universitetet i Aarhus, og vil se på innovasjon som en karrieremulighet. Som vanlig vil vi også høre fra tidligere ph.d.-kandidater som nå har spennende jobber, og på ettermiddagen vil det være tre parallelle workshops om ferdigheter som er nyttige for din fremtidige karriere.

CCBIO906 course on Cancer Genomics February 19-21 2020

February 19-21, we are running the CCBIO906 course on Cancer Genomics. This is a 3 ECTS course that provides broad understanding of aspects of cancer genome biology and its investigation by next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. Methods for analyzing DNA variation and structure and RNA expression patterns will be covered, as well as nuclear and chromatin structure. Also, ethical and legal aspects, and hereditary predisposition, will be taught.

CCBIO906 will give you knowledge regarding:

  • What kinds of mutations may predispose for, contribute to, or appear during cancer development
  • How these variants can be detected by NGS methods and be analyzed bioinformatically
  • How to employ these methods to stratify patients both diagnostically and therapeutically
  • The different implications of the same aberrations depending on tissue type
  • Ethical and legal regulations regarding genetic analyses of patient samples

The course is mainly intended for PhD candidates, but open to all, both students at other levels and researchers. There is no course fee.

When: 19-21 February 2020
Where: Room B307, Haukeland University Hospital, main building 3rd floor (Sentralblokken), Bergen
