Akademiska Hus will install nearly 4,000 square meters of solar panels on nine buildings at Campus Medicinareberget. The solar cells will be in operation by the end of next year, and will then generate 675,000 kilowatt hours of renewable electricity per year, which corresponds to what an electric car needs to be able to drive 75 laps around the earth. The solar panels that are now being set up on the roofs of Medicinareberget are an investment of approximately SEK 10 million for Akademiska Hus, which has already installed solar cells on the roof at School of Buisiness, Economics, and Law.
The parking lot outside the Lundberg Laboratory has been in preparation for the lab and office modules, as previously informed here on Akademiliv. The delivery was expected already beginning of this week (46) but a road construction work unexpectedly prevented the transport vehicles from passing. In addition, the heavy loaded trailers require a special permission, which is not granted for daytime or during rush hours. The plan at this point is to go ahead with the delivery in the coming days during evening time and start the assembly work in the mornings earlier than planned. This means a more intense work with an increased flow of heavy transport vehicles in the Medicinareberget area.
Please view this map for detailed information about transport route, closed walkways and car lanes.
Akademiliv congratulates Professor Helle Wijk, who has been appointed Visiting Professor at Chalmers University of Technology for three years, as part of formalizing a research collaboration on care environments that has been going on for a time. The appointment provides a formal connection between Helle Wijk and the Center for Healthcare Architecture at Chalmers, which will increase the efficiency and impact of the collaboration. This research collaboration between the Center for the Architecture of Healthcare and the Institute of Health and Care Sciences is also becoming more visible to the outside world, financiers and universities.
The working group that was commissioned to investigate and describe the conditions for merging library resources between the university library and the medical library at Sahlgrenska University Hospital has now reported its results to Hälso-sam. The working group has investigated how hospitals and universities in several other locations collaborate on library resources, and found that no region has succeeded in overcoming all difficulties involved in such mergers. The difficulties include problems with various licensing agreements, communications, IT security and dual networks.
In this drone film you get a unique experience of the construction site close to Medicinarelängan where preparations are in full swing for the new construction: https://play.gu.se/media/t/0_f834q7an?utm.
The location has been fenced as all construction sites are, due to security regulations and it has been hard to get a proper view from a distance what is going on. Here is a unique overview of the construction site in June this year.
Work is proceeding according to plan and the final blast is estimated after summer next year. The plan is based on the information available at this moment.
Sufficient information in English about this call will be published here shortly.
The application deadline for this call is January 7, 2020. Questions may be directed to email@example.com.
The Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine (WCMTM) seeks a licenced doctor holding a PhD, with active research in one of the center’s focus areas (molecular medical aspects of metabolic and degenerative diseases, neuroscience, inflammation, cancer, and life science chemistry). Candidates who defended their doctoral thesis no more than seven years ago are prioritized. Within the position, your clinical service will be combined with 50% research over four years. The position holder also receives funding for two staff members (postdoc, doctoral student or equivalent) and certain funds for operating costs.

The journalist Henrik Frenkel is one of 25,000 Swedes who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease every year, and he talk about his disease in a blog and a podcast, and about Alzheimer’s overall. In one of the most recent episodes, he interviews Henrik Zetterberg, Professor of Neurochemistry at Sahlgrenska Academy, who tells us more about the blood test that he and his research colleagues are developing that will be used to track Alzheimer’s disease. Here you can hear the podcast (Note – the podcast is in Swedish): https://poddtoppen.se/podcast/1483134067/hjalp-jag-har-alzheimer/va-har-jag-fel-diagnos
Akademiliv congratulates Ola Rolfson, who is appointed Professor of orthopedics at the Institute of Clinical Sciences and succeeds Professor Helena Brisby as Head of the Department of Orthopedics. He is a consultant in orthopedics with a special focus on arthroplasty. Since 2017, Ola has been responsible for the Swedish Hip Prosthesis Register, a national quality register that has been an international pioneer in monitoring, evaluating and improving the quality of care. The register analyzes and reports to the healthcare system so that the methods and implants that have been shown to give the best long-term results are used. By combining information from different quality registers and other health data registers, additional knowledge can be gained that leads to improvements in care. Currently, exciting work is underway to consolidate the Hip and Knee Prosthesis Registry into a register. Ola is also involved in the development of randomized clinical trials based on quality registers.
In addition to the quality register work, Ola’s research interests include patient-reported outcomes, epidemiology, implant-related infections, arthritis school, healthcare processes and management in healthcare, financial evaluation of health, statistical methods, cartilage lubrication and radio-stereometric analysis of implants.
De stora samhällsutmaningarna kräver investeringar i forskning och forskningsinfrastruktur. Det framgår av både Vetenskapsrådets eget inspel till den forskningspolitiska propositionen, och det inspel som lämnats gemensamt av Energimyndigheten, Formas, Forte Rymdstyrelsen, Vetenskapsrådet och Vinnova.
– Ska vi kunna möta samhällsutmaningarna och nå regeringens mål måste forskningspolitiken vara långsiktig och skapa stabila villkor för systemets olika aktörer, säger Sven Stafström, Vetenskapsrådets generaldirektör, och fortsätter:
– De i nuläget mest angelägna områdena för resursförstärkning är fri forskning och forskningsinfrastruktur. Samtidigt måste vi arbeta för att resultaten av forskningen, den nyvunna kunskapen, snabbare kommer samhället till gagn. Därför föreslår vi även insatser för vetenskaplig rådgivning och öppen tillgång till forskningsresultat.
