Centre for Digital Life Norway – message from the centre leaders

Keeping with DLN tradition, our 2021 DLN annual report has just been published, highlighting results, events and achievements in the Centre during 2021. As last year the report is constructed as an illustrative and easily readable electronic version. This should make it valuable reading for a broad audience, and together the annual reports represent our DLN history.
One of the finest DLN traditions is to integrate new digital biotechnology research projects into the centre. In the first three years, these were arranged by the Research Council of Norway as contract meetings. More recently, we, the Centre, have arranged local onboarding meetings where researchers with new projects physically meet with established DLN projects and the operational management team, to efficiently meet and exchange knowledge across the centre. In recent weeks, we had such onboarding meetings in Tromsø and Trondheim, and look forward to welcoming new projects soon in Oslo. Today our centre has over 40 DLN projects.
Finally, we are busy gathering ideas and organizing our upcoming annual conference Digital Life 2022, which will be arranged in Trondheim 20-21. October 2022: save the dates!

New member project: CellFit - T cells fit to fight cancer

We are excited to welcome CellFit as new member project to Centre for Digital Life Norway! CellFit is based at Oslo University Hospital (OUS) and combines expertise from OUS, SINTEF, Thermo Fisher and collaborates with Oslo Cancer Cluster. 

New videos from UiT projects SOLIS and NanoAI

SOLIS (UiT) is a technology development project that will produce microscopy solutions for unprecedented capabilities in the field of high-speed volumetric fluorescence imaging with sub-micrometre resolution.
NanoAI (UiT) will develop new frameworks of interpretable and analyzable artificial intelligence (AI) designed specifically for microscopy and nanoscopy so that microscopes and nanoscopes can be transformed from a visualization device to a powerful knowledge discovery tool. 

Open call for Digital Life Norway project membership

Digital biotechnology projects in health, aquaculture, agriculture, and industrial biotechnology are invited to apply to join DLN 2.0! Selected projects will have access to support from the dedicated DLN team and will contribute to synergies, innovation, and knowledge-sharing with other research projects in the centre and the research school. Applications will be evaluated on a continuous basis.
