Professor Kjetil Taskén is presented as new director of the Department of Cancer Research at the Cancer Clinic, Oslo University Hospital

 
Kjetil Taskén
Kjetil Taskén

Taskén`s current position is Director of the Center for Molecular Medicine Norway – NCMM (merged with the Biotechnology center in 2017). He will begin in his position as Head of Department in January 2018.

Kjetil Taskén is 51 years old (born December 19, 1965), and he is a highly qualified and experienced research leader with very relevant background as head of a large unit for biomedical research (120-180 employees at NCMM).

Taskén is an active researcher who can be credited for a total of 269 publications, and well over 12,000 citations. He also holds an h-index of 59 within both basic research and translational research. In 2016, he was awarded the prestigious King Olavs Vs Cancer Research Prize for his work on immunotherapy, a field of expertise that Taskén has been involved in ever since he started his research in 1994. Furthermore, he also leads one of six research groups in the KG Jebsen Center for cancer Immunotherapy (led by Johanna Olweus).

From left: Jiqui Cheng, Hege Russnes, Ole Chr. Lingjærde and Peter Van Loo

The authors demonstrate the power of meta-analysis to identify rare somatic variants in cancer, and they identify several copy number alterations of potential importance for tumor development in those affected. The paper contributes to the understanding of the diversity of evolutionary processes in cancer.
The study, published online in Nature Communications on 31 October, is collaboration between OUS, UiO and several international partners. First author Jiqiu Cheng from the Hege Russnes group at the Department of Cancer Genetics at the Institute for Cancer Research. The senior author of the paper is Peter Van Loo at the Francis Crick Institute in UK.

June H. Myklebust

The 2017 "Dr. Ragnar Mørk's legacy prize" went to June Helen Myklebust from Erlend B. Smeland's Lymphomas & Lymphocyte Biology Group at the Department of Cancer Immunology. This award of NOK 200.000 is annually given to scientists affiliated to the Norwegian Radium Hospital who have obtained important results within the field of cancer research.
The ceremony took place on Friday November 10th in the Research Building at Montebello.
June Helen Myklebust gave a lecture about the research activities that has earned her the award.
The article is updated with photos from the ceremony.

Thomas Fleischer and Xavier Tekpli from the Cancer Genome Variation group,  lead by Vessela Kristensen at the Department of Cancer Genetics, IKF, together with their collaborators from the NCMM, Toni Hurtado and Anthony Mathelier, and Professor Arnoldo Frigessi from UiO identified methylated regions (CpGs) that show remarkably and reproducibly conserved patterns of association to gene expression in the DNA from breast tumors in three independent breast cancer cohorts. These patterns result in two main signatures (clusters), one reflecting infiltrating immune cell signatures and another related to estrogen receptor signalling. These results indicate that, in at least some forms of cancer, aberrant DNA methylation occurs not as chaotic stochastic process but is precisely regulated. 
The results were published online in Nature Communications November 9th .

Maria Torgersen
Maria Torgersen

Maria Torgersen, researcher in the group of Kirsten Sandvig in Department of Molecular Cell Biology, is presently working in NANOCAN, the national competence building project of nanomedicine including 10 research groups in Norway. Maria has now received a grant of 8.5 million NOK from The research Council of Norway (NANO2021 program) to continue her work with studies of the importance of autophagy in cellular responses to uptake of nanoparticles. The project is entitled “nanoAUTOPHAGY – health implications of nanoparticle-induced changes in autophagy”. The grant includes salary for 4 years for Maria and 3 years for a PhD student. There were 61 applicants, of which two (including Maria) obtained the highest possible rate.
