SBE Went to Copenhagen


Hi everyone!

Last weekend we had a blast in Copenhagen! The city is really a hot-spot for biotech-related industry and research. We had the pleasure to receive a guided tour at Biosynthia, a fast-growing synthetic biology start-up. There, they are planning to produce high-value products by engineering bacteria.



We also visited the headquarters of our neighbors, SBE DTU, and enjoy strolling around the campus, taking a look at the University facilities and at their (many) laboratories designated to biological/chemical research. And, since the weather was amazing, we also had time to enjoy the sun and the beautiful city!



We would like to specially thank Biosynthia (http://biosyntia.com/) and Dóra Vitay for the nice tour and for explaining her research to us. Many thanks as well to SBE DTU (http://www.sbe.dtu.dk/) and particularly to Christopher Behrens for taking the time to show us around.

Hope to see you in Gothenburg soon!

Open Mic: Women in Biosciences and Bioengineering (20 Mar 2018)

As a team of five young women the SBE board this year cannot overlook the topic of women in biosciences and bioengineering. We understand even though we study and live in one of the best countries to be a female scientist and engineer at, there are unfortunately still many hurdles on the way. 

If you want to hear about the journey of three great women in biotechnology, come and join our open mic on March 20! 

Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, a head of the Chemical Biology division, leads a research group focusing on metalloprotein mechanisms and protein misfolding and has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers. She is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and one of the six women under Chemistry until today.

Dina Petranovic Nielsen, an associate professor in molecular biology, leads a research group investigating cell aging and death using yeast as a model organism. In addition, her group studies biopharmaceutical production in yeast. Besides from being a teacher, supervisor and examiner at Chalmers, she is also a CEO of a non-profit organization Molecular Frontiers.

Sepideh H. Hagvall is an associate principal scientist at AstraZeneca and an adjunct professor at University of Skövde. Her research focuses on tissue engineering and translational science. She also supervises young scientists in the field.

Ps. We hope to see also many men in the audience as true equality, of course, lies in the hands of all.

3) Lastly, there will be questions and answers session with Louise Mannerås Holm.

About the TEDtalk
Our bellies and brains are physically and biochemically connected in a number of ways, meaning the state of our intestines can alter the way our brains work and behave. Hence, Ruairi Robertson is passionate about the link between our bellies and brains. His research is examining how our intestines and the microbes within them can influence both physical and mental health, and most importantly how our diets influence this relationship

Webinar Lunch - What will humans look like in 100 years?

Dear all,
 
We would like to invite you to the fourth webinar lunch, hosted by SBE 2016/2017!

Where? KA, lecture hall in the Chemistry building

"We can evolve bacteria, plants and animals — futurist Juan Enriquez asks: Is it ethical to evolve the human body? In a visionary talk that ranges from medieval prosthetics to present day neuroengineering and genetics, Enriquez sorts out the ethics associated with evolving humans and imagines the ways we'll have to transform our own bodies if we hope to explore and live in places other than Earth."

To tackle this, accompany us in SBE wednesday of 22nd of february in watching and discussing this novel TEDtalk, performed by the futurist Juan Enriquez! 

In addition to an interesting TEDtalk, we will serve sandwiches and soft drinks; first come, first serve!

Webinar Lunch - How to read the genome

Dear all,
 
We would like to invite you to the third webinar lunch, hosted by SBE 2016/2017!

Where? KA, lecture hall in the Chemistry building
When? Twelve O'clock, wednesday 9th of november

"Secrets, disease and beauty are all written in the human genome, the complete set of genetic instructions needed to build a human being. Now, as scientist and entrepreneur Riccardo Sabatini shows us, we have the power to read this complex code, predicting things like height, eye color, age and even facial structure — all from a vial of blood. And soon, Sabatini says, our new understanding of the genome will allow us to personalize treatments for diseases like cancer. We have the power to change life as we know it. How will we use it?"

To tackle this, accompany us in SBE next wednesday in watching and discussing this novel TEDtalk, performed by the scientist and entreprenuer Riccardo Sabatini! 
In addition to an interesting TEDtalk, we will serve sandwiches and soft drinks; first come, first serve!

WEBINAR - Body parts on a chip!

Welcome to the first Webinar Lunch with the new board!

"It's relatively easy to imagine a new medicine, a better cure for some disease. The hard part, though, is testing it, and that can delay promising new cures for years." Could body parts on a chip be the solutions for this problem?

We'll be serving sandwiches and watching the Ted Talk-clip where Geraldine Hamilton, Ph.D. in cell biology/toxicology, shows how her lab creates; organs and body parts on a chip. Afterwards we'll be discussion the clip together. No previous knowledge is needed! 

See you on wednesday!
