The sea in the north is full of treasures. Marine species that live in the Arctic climate have developed special characteristics that may be of great use within medicine, nutrition or the biotechnology industry in the future. The research activities at Norut focus on peptides, lipids and bioactive molecules linked to bioprospecting. Norut has established and operates the rental laboratory Barents Biocentre Lab in Tromsø. Many of the treasures of the sea are yet to be explored. That is triggering us at Norut.
Norut Narvik is taking part in a new EU Horizon 2020 project focusing on the development of Arctic oil spill response methods and the evaluation of their environmental effects.
A new type of immunotherapy against liver cancer is so promising that Norut has been granted nearly NOK 10 million to continue the research.
Biosurfactants produced by Norwegian cold-tolerated bacteria enhance biodegradation of oil pollution. They can be used as a “greener” alternative to chemical surfactant.
Had it not been for the Arctic climate and Barents Biocentre Lab, Barentzymes would not exist. Twelve employees from Norway and Denmark are today attending the opening of the head office in Tromsø.
We are looking for a PhD candidate within advanced peptide synthesis and structure elucidation.
Executive Councillor Kari-Anne Opsal described the Barents Biocentre Lab as a political and strategic masterpiece during her official opening speech on September 4.
The Barents Biocentre Lab is opening. Are you wondering what is hidden inside the walls and what opportunities this offers? Take a look at the lab’s new website.
“This goes hand in glove with the national trade and industry policy,” said the Minister of Trade and Industry, Trond Giske, when he opened the Barents BioCentre and new building at the Tromsø Science Park on May 25.
