CBRNE-center

The European CBRNE Center performs research, training and education within the areas of security and vulnerability, in particular incidents with chemical (C), biological (B), radiological/nuclear (RN) and explosive (E) substances. The aim is to make the Umeå-based research environment for CBRNE-related incidents a leading Center of Excellence for CBRNE research and development within the EU. The center is organised under the Faculty of Science and Technology at Umeå University.

Membrane vesicles released by bacteria may play different roles during infection

2017-09-24 (from 2017-09-18)
Bacteria release membrane-derived vesicles (MVs), which are small particles that can transport virulence factors to neighbouring bacteria or to the cells of a mammalian host. This special MV-based system for delivering toxic proteins and nucleic acids in a protected manner to the target cells may ha...

10,000 year-old DNA proves when fish colonialized our lakes

2017-09-24 (from 2017-09-20)
DNA in lake sediment forms a natural archive displaying when various fish species colonized lakes after the glacial period. This according to researchers at the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science at Umeå University in a study published in the journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution.

Researchers hopeful they can improve techniques for joint defect treatment

2017-09-22
Different surface topographies and materials provide interesting ways to study cell behaviour and potentially provide novel solutions for treating joint defects. Tissue engineering methods that simulate native cartilage could prove useful to create cartilage implants in the laboratory, according to ...
