The Bio-AI Lab team members organized a paper reading, idea discussion, and team building event on 30th May 2022 at UiT – The Arctic University of Norway. 16 people from 5 different institutions globally presented. The total participants are through physical as well as online channels with total 31 participants.
Within the field of medical image processing, at 3rdPlace we are currently working on RamApp, a web application that aims to provide a user-friendly and open-source solution allowing researchers from various backgrounds to easily and successfully explore hyperspectral data, with a focus on Raman imaging.
The human heart pumps ~70 ml blood per beat which is ~5 l per minute. Cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) are the working horse in this system. In the heart cardiomyocytes are organized in a complex 3-dimensional tissue. They are functionally and structurally coupled to variety of other cell types, e.g. endothelial cells, fibroblasts, vascular smooth muscle cells, but also immune cells such as macrophages. Even though they make up most of the heart`s volume only 20% to 30% of the heart`s cells are cardiomyocytes. Cardiac tissue engineering was established to study tissue organization and heart muscle function in a 3D environment in a dish.
