Visualizing the Future
Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) is a multidisciplinary research center initiated by Linköping University, the County Council of Östergötland and Sectra AB.
CMIV conducts focused front-line research within multidisciplinary projects providing solutions to tomorrow’s clinical issues. The mission is to develop future methods and tools for image analysis and visualization for applications within health care and medical research.
Nordic Symposium on Digital Pathology 2014
Linköping University and the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) welcome you to the 2nd Nordic Symposium on Digital Pathology in Linköping, Sweden, November 5-6, 2014.
Last year’s symposium was a great success with international guests and speakers, world leading within the field of digital pathology. In 2014 we repeat this golden opportunity for researchers and clinical professionals to hear about the latest advances in the field from outstanding experts, and to share and exchange knowledge regarding digital pathology adoption in health care.
The symposium will have a Nordic focus, but as the Nordic countries are at the forefront of this important area, the symposium is also recommended for participants world-wide that are interested in the latest developments.
This year we will expand the meeting and include an industrial exhibition as well as a possibility for journal publication. The symposium will also relocate to accommodate the program as well as a growing audience. The new venue is Linköping Konsert&Kongress, a conference center well suited for the event.
Brown Fat Reduces the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
Sven Enerbäck and his research group study the metabolism on a molecular level, in brown and white fat cells. The metabolism is of importance for the development of obesity related diseases. Extended knowledge about the mechanisms regulating brown fat cells increases the possibility of finding new effective therapies for obesity related diseases as Type 2 Diabetes.
This spring the research group, with Sven Enerbäck and Martin Lidell in the front line, published a study in Nature Medicine. The aim of the study was to investigate which types of brown fat there is in humans. The results show, unlike earlier studies, that there are two types of brown fat in humans. Evidence for the existence of beige brown fat has been presented in earlier studies. However, this study also found evidence of classical brown fat, a type of brown fat that until now only was believed to be present in rodents. Read more...
