Seminar Dec 1: Biogas – green fuel from organic waste

Lene Pilskog, business developer in Renevo: Biogas is a mixture of methane and CO2 produced by anaerobic digestion of organic matter in an oxygen-free environment. RENEVO is in the process of building an innovative biogas plant in Stord, Norway, that will produce liquid bio-methane for fuel, and bio-CO2 for industrial use. The gas will be used in heavy transport, buses and in ship traffic. The feedstock for the production is livestock manure and fish silage. There are several CO2-reducing elements embedded in the project, and as a result- the production of biogas is in total better than zero emissions of GHG.  The presentation will focus on these CO2-reducing measures.
Time: Tuesday 1st December from 12:15 to 13:00  (the doors open at 12:00).

Nobel prize in Chemistry to Crispr/Cas9

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2020 to Emmanuelle Charpentier (Director of the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens, Berlin) and Jennifer A. Doudna (Professor at the University of California, Berkeley) “for the development of a method for genome editing.” The method in question is CRISPR/Cas9, the importance of which can hardly be overestimated.

Prior to 2020, 183 individuals had been awarded the Nobel prize in chemistry (counting Frederick Sanger once despite him being awarded twice). There were only five female laureates: Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Irène Joliot-Curie (1935), Dorothy Hodgkin (1964), Ada Yonath (2009) and Frances Arnold (2018). Approaching the end of a year where the chemical societies have seen the need to stress the importance of equality in the chemical sciences and work places, it is well worth drawing attention to the fact that this year’s Nobel prize is split between two eminent female scientists (both of whom are younger than the writer of this column).


Elvira wins prize!

The 15th edition of European Molecular Imaging Meeting (EMIM) was held during the last of week of August (in a virtual edition, obviously), with Elvira García de Jalón Viñegra among the participants. She is a PhD student with prof. Emmet Mc Cormack at Department of Clinical Science (K2) and a full-blown member of the Haug research group in medicinal chemistry at our department. Elvira was granted an oral contribution in the session on New Tools for Cancer Imaging, with her paper on Repurposing 18F-FMISO for clinical PET/CT imaging of nitroreductase gene directed enzyme prodrug therapy. Her science and presentation of it impressed the jury to the extent that she was selected for the «best-lecture-of-the-session» award! Quoting the proud prize-winner, «I am the type of person that does not give up until I get to understand things.» This is an extremely useful strait in a researcher – we offer our congratulations!
