ERC Advanced Grants – the European Union’s most prestigious research funding programme – is granting Professor Oliver Billker EUR 2.5 million for a period of five years for research on the sexual biology of malaria parasites. Molecular biologist Oliver Billker is a new top recruit to Umeå University...
The successful Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation at Umeå University is now kicking off twelve new doctoral projects with ten new industrial partners. Co-funded doctoral education is a win-win situation providing companies and doctoral students with valuable experience.
Due to their worldwide distribution, trees have an extraordinary role in removing excessive amounts of CO2 released by our highly industrialized and mobile modern societies from the atmosphere. So far however, no tool exists which would enable scientists to precisely calculate the carbon dioxide upt...
Many current climate studies focus solely on increases in temperature, and in doing so, the ecosystem effects caused by climate change may be misinterpreted. In a new study, Umeå researchers are emphasising that shortage of nitrogen can limit how arctic streams respond to global warming. The results...
The plant geneticist and lecturer at the Department of Plant Physiology, Nathaniel Street, is awarded the pedagogical prize from the Faculty of Science and Technology. The prize jury motivated its decision due to his outstanding ambition, good organization and strong interest in developing new ways ...
Scientists from KBC, The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) and Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) contributed to the new film on antibiotic resistance.
13 teams defied the cold and started yesterday at minus 20°C, cheered by more than 50 supporters.
In North America, the spread of European earthworms is a known environmental issue as it has turned out that some of these species are capable of altering entire forest ecosystems. In Sweden, we have so far had a positive approach to earthworms and no policies have been put in place to limit the spr...
Kristin Blum's dissertation improves the state of knowledge about how organic pollutants can be separated in small sewage treatment plants, if the organic pollutants lead to environmental impact and how existing small sewage treatment plants can be equipped with biocoal filters to improve the degree...
