Do you wonder…

…how Bjørn Grung found himself here? For the answer, attend the Thursday lunch seminar this week at 12.15 @Tripletten. Welcome!

Flow chemistry

Early this year, the department got new instrumentation for flow chemistry. In the lunch seminar this week, Audun will give an introduction to the new technology, in his lecture over the self-chosen topic Enabling technologies: Flow Chemistry.

flowchem

In more detail: The common laboratory glassware has in decades been the go-to tool for chemists, but it has restricted the way we conduct chemistry. New emerging technologies give the chemist improved control over reaction parameters. Flow chemistry enables new discoveries in multiple  branches of chemistry. The basic concepts of flow chemistry and its advantages are presented.  Resent developments in the field are highlighted

4D coordinates: Thursday Oct 5 at 12.15, at Tripletten (3069).

Introduction to Synthetic biology

Do not miss the opportunity to hear Dr. Ralf Kellmann (Dept. of Biology & Hormonlaboratoriet HelseBergen) tell about their effort to use of synthetic biology to produce neosaxitoxin. Neosaxitoxin is one of the paralytic shellfish toxins (PSTs), which are a group of neurotoxic alkaloids produced by algal blooms, i.e. marine dinoflagellates (red tides) and freshwater filamentous cyanobacteria. PSTs reversibly block voltage-gated sodium channels, and recent clinical trials on humans have indicated a positive safety profile for neosaxitoxin as a long-acting local anesthetic. The major challenge with neosaxitoxin and its relatives is the lack of a large-scale production process. We are employing synthetic biology to develop such a large-scale production process for neosaxitoxin, which we envision will be capable of covering the future world-market demand for neosaxitoxin.

Synthetic biology can be defined as: » the design and construction of novel biological pathways, organisms or devices, or the redesign of existing natural biological systems» (UK Royal Society). It is one of the currently fastest growing research fields, enabled by new technologies, such as the chemically synthesis of long (> 100 kb) DNA, and efficient combinatorial cloning techniques. Synthetic biology can be used as a research tool to uncover and characterise novel biochemical pathways, as well as to develop processes for the industrial production NPs and NP-derived derived drugs.

When and where: Thursday Sept 28 at 12.15 in Tripletten.

Guest lecture I

As previously announced, this week we receive as guests two scientists of high standing who have applied for a position in bioinformatics jointly at the Department of chemistry and the Computational Biology Unit (CBU). You are very welcome to attend the lectures that they will give, see below, whereby you can contribute to making them feel welcome at our department. Please notice that different lecture rooms are used for the two lectures.
Monday September 11, at 09h15-10
Dr. Tobias Karakach, Research Officer, National Research Council of Canada
Title: “Bioinformatics for Functional Genomic”
Location: Room 3069, aka Tripletten, in the Science Bldg.

Deadline for signing up is May 30.

NKS-seminar ”KLIMA- og MILJØANALYSER” i september

nks-fak-seminar_2017

Norsk kjemisk selskap-faggruppe for analytisk kjemi (NKS-FAK)  inviterer til seminar på UiB 14. september om Klima- og miljøanalyser.  Programmet inneholder 9 foredrag som dekker grunnleggende temaer innen analytisk kjemi som for eksempel god veieteknikk og kvalitetssikring, med problemstillinger fra nanopartikler, algegifter, paleoklima og luft/jord/vann. Analyse av både uorganiske og organiske parametere vil behandles. 6 firmaer vil ha utstilling og der vil være god anledning til å diskutere ulike problemstillinger med dem. Påmelding sendes siv.dundas@uib.no innen 7. september.

HMS-møte/HSE-meeting 21. juni

Kjære alle sammen, Kjemisk institutt vil gjennomføre et heldags HMS-møte onsdag 21. juni 2017, kl 09:00-14:00. Møtet er obligatorisk for alle ansatte på instituttet.220px-Wet_floor_-_piso_mojado Videre planlegges det sosialt samvær om kvelden (fra kl 1900) med bespisning!

Dear all, The Department of Chemistry will organize a full-day HSE meeting on June 21, from 09:00-14:00. Noteworthy, the meeting is mandatory for all employees. Additionally, there are plans in progress
for a social gathering including dining, in the afternoon from 7 pm!

Spør rektor!

rektoratSom forberedelse til rektorvalget 30.mars-5.april, blir det tirsdag 14.3 kl 13.30-15 åpent valgmøte for fakultetet med rektorkandidat Dag Rune Olsen sammen med prorektorkandidat Margareth Hagen og deres viserektorkandidater Robert Bjerknes og Oddrun Samdal. De presenterer først kort sin valgplattform (se www.olsen2017.info), og deretter blir det rom for å stille spørsmål og gi innspill til valgplattformen.

Møtet holdes i auditorium 5 i Realfagsbygget, 3.etg.

Nyttig MN Workshop om læringsutbyte etc!

I forbindelse med revisjonen av studieplaner inviterer MN-fakultetet til workshop på onsdag den 15. februar kl 10.00 – 14.00 på seminarrommet på VilVite.excellent_teacher

Mange undervisere ved Kjemisk har sendt inn utkast til reviderte læringsutbyttebeskrivelser på sitt eller sine emner i BSc-studiet i kjemi. På denne workshop’en vil du få gode innspill til å videreutvikle utkastet ditt, spesielt med tanke på sammenhengen mellom formulering av faglige mål og egnede former for vurdering av måloppnåelse. Ivar Nordmo og Yael Harlap fra institutt for pedagogikk bidrar med kyndige innspill og nyttige utfordringer.

Påmeldingsfrist er 10. februar. Fakultetet bestiller te/kaffe og lunsj.

Alle kursansvarlige på instituttet er herved oppfordret til å melde seg på workshop’en:  Påmeldingsskjema
