A growing rise in drug-resistant tuberculosis is a major obstacle to successfully treat the illness. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine and Umeå University have found a molecular compound that prevents and even reverses resistance to the most widely used antibiotic for treating tuberculosis – isoniazid. The results of the study are published in the journal PNAS.
On 16 January, Umeå University’s Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation (IDS) is celebrating its first decade of successful activities with a large workshop with more than 50 participating doctoral students, supervisors and partner companies. The theme of the day is visions and aspirations about how research can be of public benefit in the future.
A low murmur of voices can be heard in the Triple Helix room in Samverkanshuset where mentors from companies and organisations, supervisors from Umeå University and expectant doctoral students are sitting at tables discussing their respective projects. A new batch of IDS students are kicking off their doctoral studies by getting together for a two-day workshop.
The Kempe Foundations have granted SEK 700,000 to Professor Thomas Wågberg, Professor Ludvig Edman, and industrial doctoral student Erik Zäll at the Department of Physics. The money is to be invested in a world-class spectrophotometer for the Department of Physics.

As sustainable energy moves up the political agenda, low carbon solutions for heating and cooling are coming to the fore. District heating in Dresden is turning greener thanks to the Innovation Power Plant Reick.
A new smart city EU-funded project, POCITYF, is set to transform our historical and cultural cities into more efficient, healthy, sustainable living environments with "positive energy districts". Led by EDP, the project kicks off on 9 October with 46 partners from 13 countries.
When young, dark-grown seedlings of thale cress are given light, they start to form roots from the stem-like part of the plant, called hypocotyl. Abdellah Lakehal used this system to study how the initiation of these adventitious roots is regulated at the molecular level. Abdellah Lakehal successfully defended his PhD thesis on Thursday, 28th of November 2019 at Umeå University.
