A new study of the PhyloBone project of the University of Turku, Finland, identifies hundreds of non-collagenous proteins in the bone matrix that may play regulatory roles in bone formation and regeneration. The study opens the door to new treatments and preventive measures for bone regeneration and osteoporosis research.
Registration open for the seminar "Sustainability and Academic Research – UTU Researchers Contributing to Sustainability"
Welcome to the seminar "Sustainability and Academic Research – UTU Researchers Contributing to Sustainability" on 4th June. Faced with a multitude of challenges ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic and global environmental crisis to a variety of risks pointed out by for example the third citizens’ panel on sustainable development in Finland, the presenters and audience are invited to share their thoughts and insights on sustainability and academic research. Registration is open until 2nd June.
The Turku Collegium for Science, Medicine and Technology (TCSMT) international selection process for postdoctoral researcher positions ended at the end of April. TCSMT received 84 applications from 26 countries. Of the applicants, 77% reported a nationality other than Finnish.
DNP, a weight loss agent withdrawn from the market in the late 1930s due to acute toxicity, has become increasingly popular in recent years through online illegal sales. A new study using a lifelong DNP treatment in an avian model found that while no obvious toxic effects were detected on the short to medium-term, DNP reduces lifespan by 20% on the long run.
The environment we experience in early-life is known to have major consequences on later-life health and lifespan. A new study led from the University of Turku using an avian model suggests that increased prenatal exposure to maternal thyroid hormones could have beneficial effects on the ‘biological age’ at birth.
The Turku Collegium for Science and Medicine invites applications for a maximum of five fixed term postdoctoral researcher positions. The post doc positions offer a base for multidisciplinary research in an international and interdisciplinary environment, where the researchers form a tight community and receive peer-support from their colleagues.
The Turku Collegium for Science and Medicine (TCSM) international call for applications for junior group leader positions ended at the beginning of January this year. Through a three-stage selection process, the TCSM board selected five new collegium researchers for a three year period of employment from a total number of 81 applicants.
The Turku Collegium for Science and Medicine (TCSM) international selection process for postdoctoral researcher positions ended at the end of April.
