Computer-Aided Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer Using Multiparametric MRI
Mohammed R. S. Sunoqrot
- Pre-processing, Segmentation and Quality Control
In 2017-2021, NTNU Biotechnology funded my PhD project aimed to participate in improving the diagnosis of prostate cancer. The reason for selecting prostate cancer is that it is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men...
Simulation of deformable drops in turbulence
Multiphase flows have a central role in environmental problems such as climate change and the different technological solutions that we can use to counteract it. Recent years have revealed that the mass exchange at the interface between the ocean and the atmosphere contributes to the absorption of CO2 and...
Molecular tool development to investigate plant stress
Even though we all know that plants are living organisms we tend to forget the real meaning of that. They are just there, quiet and seemingly static on our windowsills. But no matter how static and insensate they may appear, they are real full-time working factories and highly sensitive towards their surroundings...
Production of chemicals in bacteria
May Laura Kilano Khider
- Utilization of one-carbon (C1) compounds for production of value-added chemicals in engineered Bacillus methanolicus
My research group is interested in C1 metabolism and work mainly with methylotrophic bacteria, metabolic engineering and creating cell factories. My main interest is establishing synthetic methanotrophy in industrially relevant microbes for utilization of methane as a feedstock...
Neural disorder at the edge of chaos
Ola Huse Ramstad
When a nervous system is impaired, we see this as symptoms in the behavior or condition of those unfortunate enough to be affected, such as tremors in those with Parkinson’s or seizures in those with epilepsy. Yet for many such disorders there is no apparent physical cause for the symptoms, no clear culprit to aim our medicine at...
The impact of cerebrospinal fluid flow on the chemical landscape of the zebrafish brain
The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is an integral part of the brain architecture; its traditional role being hydromechanical support, though more recent research has been uncovering its importance in other aspects of brain maintenance and transfer of crucial neuromodulatory molecules...
Producing proteins with microorganisms
Proteins are everywhere in our lives. They are in our food, but can also be found in non-food items like drugs, detergents, and toothpaste. In fact, many industries rely heavily on the use of proteins for their processes...

Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis for cardiovascular models
Vinzenz Gregor Eck
A major challenge for applying cardiovascular models in personalized medicine is uncertainty of the model predictions, given the natural variations and measurement uncertainty of model inputs. To address this challenge, we combined methodologies for...

In vivo mouse models to unravel the genetic interaction of immunodeficiencies
Sergio Castanedo Zegarra
Our immune system is constantly fighting to protect us against pathogens and infections. For example, our adaptive immune system is constituted mainly by B and T lymphocytes. The development of these cells depends on a DNA repair pathway called...
