Other January News in Brief
PRIVACY hosts virtual book launch; New study from PREDICT; New IDUN Ph.D. summer school; CeMist lecture on plant microbes and DAWN finds method for investigating distant black holes. All this in the DNRF’s Other January News in Brief.
PRIVACY hosts virtual book launch
On February, 3, 2022 the Center of Excellence Centre for Privacy Studies (PRIVACY) at the University of Copenhagen is hosting a virtual book launch as the center launches its new book “Private/Public in 18th-Century Scandinavia.” The book explores the private in the public. Everyone has the opportunity to sign up for the event, which will be held on Zoom.
New study from PREDICT
A new Danish study “Risk of acute arterial events associated with treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases: A nationwide Danish cohort study” examines the relationship between inflammatory diseases and the treatments thiopurine and anti-TNF. Several of the study’s authors are researchers at the Center of Excellence Center for Molecular Prediction of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (PREDICT) at Aalborg University. The study has been published in the scientific journal Gut.
New IDUN Ph.D. summer school
A new summer school created by the Center of Excellence IDUN at DTU will run between August 15-26, 2022, with the courses “Micro and Nano Sensors” and “Drug Delivery” for Ph.D. students. The courses will offer instruction on nano and micro technologies and label-free micro and nano sensors, which are both promising new technologies. The IDUN hopes to offer the courses as in-person rather than virtual classes.
CeMist lecture on plant microbes
The lecture “Back to the roots: Search for the ‘missing’ plant microbes” will be held on February 24, 2022. The lecture is being offered by the Center of Excellence Center for Microbial Secondary Metabolites (CeMist) at DTU. Professor Jos Raaijmakers will talk about his research program on plant microbes. Since Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, guests should register as soon as possible, as there are a limited number of spaces.
DAWN finds method for investigating distant black holes
Supermassive black holes at the center of galaxies swallow gas, dust, and even stars, expelling excess energy as powerful jets seen across the entire universe. In a new study from the Center of Excellence Cosmic Dawn (DAWN) at the University of Copenhagen and DTU, Ph.D. student John Weaver, along with co-author Keith Horne, has found a method for studying even the most distant black holes. The new study has been published in the scientific journal Monthly Notices of The Royal Astronomical Society.
