The Nansen Neuroscience Lecture 2021 will be given at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters on Monday 11 Oct noon by Stefan Offermanns: “Current advances in G-protein coupled receptors – novel ligands and functions in body and brain disease”
G-protein mediated signalling and G-protein-coupled receptors are central in the regulation of the function of all cells. They are major drug targets for fighting diseases. The lecture will give an overview and present the latest advances in the field.
Professor Dr Stefan Offermanns is the Director of the Max-Planck-Institute for Heart and Lung Research, Department of Pharmacology, Bad Nauheim, Germany (https://a2.mpi-bn.mpg.de)

“The good, the bad and the ugly”. Why would we need a Centre for Healthy Ageing at the University of Oslo (UiO) and why should it be an inter-disiplinary approach? The 4th NO-Age meeting has compiled a high caliber inter-disciplinary speakers to share and discuss their expertise on such topics. In this event, we are featuring the award-winning Prof. Cass R. Sunstein from the Harvard Univesity and celebrating the life-long achievements of the 80-year young UiO Prof. Jon Storm-Mathisen.
Cass R. Sunstein is currently the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard. He is the founder and director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard Law School. In 2018, he received the Holberg Prize from the government of Norway, sometimes described as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for law and the humanities. From 2009 to 2012, he was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and after that, he served on the President’s Review Board on Intelligence and Communications Technologies and on the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Board. Prof. Sunstein has testified before congressional committees on many subjects, and he has advised officials at the United Nations, the European Commission, the World Bank, and many nations on issues of law and public policy. He serves as an adviser to the Behavioural Insights Team in the United Kingdom. In 2020, the World Health Organization appointed him as Chair of its technical advisory group on Behavioural Insights and Sciences for Health.

To address new developments in academia and society we need inter-disciplinary research that broadens our perspective and asks the unexpected questions. Our approach seeks to not only gather and get inspired, but most importantly to foster an exchange of mind set.
During four days of face-to-face online meetings, leading researchers, top biotechs and biopharmaceutical companies will meet, network and partner to accelerate neuroscience pipelines and bring new treatment options to patients worldwide.

The Nansen Neuroscience Lectures (NNL) honour Nansen’s ground-breaking contribution to neuroscience and since 10.10.2010 are part of the Academy’s Nansen celebration. This year, Morten Scheibye-Knudsen, Center for Healthy Aging (CEHA), University of Copenhagen, will speak on “Discovering interventions for healthier, happier and more productive ageing”. https://www.dnva.no/detskjer/2019/06/discovering-interventions-healthier-happier-and-more-productive-ageing Impaired health at old age is a major societal concern. Dr Morten Scheibye-Knudsen, uses in silico analyses, artificial intelligence, in vitro biochemistry and molecular biology as well as in vivo work on mouse disease models to provide new understanding and novel approaches to prevention and therapy.

Abstract: The process of aging is characterized by an accumulation of DNA damage, likely contributing to the many pathologies observed in the elderly population. Indeed, recent findings suggest that we can intervene in the DNA damage response and thereby alleviate features of aging. In this lecture, I will describe our in silico, in vitro and in vivo methodologies aimed at understanding the physiological consequence of DNA damage, and how we can use this knowledge to develop interventions. This will be illustrated by our discovery of a new premature aging disease characterized by defects in DNA metabolism, and by our efforts to develop small molecule DNA repair stimulators. Our goal, is to allow everyone to live healthier and longer lives. Biography: Morten Scheibye-Knudsen is an Associate Professor at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine and at the Center for Healthy Aging (CEHA), University of Copenhagen. He did his MD at the University of Copenhagen and worked briefly as a physician in Denmark and Greenland before turning to science. He did his post-doctoral fellowship at Vilhelm Bohr’s lab at the National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health, where he utilized state-of-the art approaches to understand how DNA damage contributes to aging. He discovered that neurodegeneration in several premature aging diseases is partly caused by hyperactivation of a DNA damage responsive enzyme called polyADP-ribose polymerase 1 (PARP1). This activation leads to loss of vital metabolites such as NAD+ and acetyl-CoA. Importantly, this discovery facilitated the realization that we can intervene in the aging process by inhibiting PARP1, augmenting NAD+ levels and increasing acetyl-CoA. In his own lab he continues to focus on understanding aging by combining machine learning based approaches with wet-lab analyses with the goal of developing interventions for age-associated diseases and perhaps aging itself. https://icmm.ku.dk/english/research-groups/scheibye-knudsen-group/https://healthyaging.ku.dk/staff/scheibye-knudsen-group/?pure=en/persons/193092Printable program: https://www.dnva.no/sites/default/files/2019-09/NNL2019_MortenScheibye-Knudsen%20%28002%29.pdfInformation on NNL and previous lecturers: https://www.dnva.no/sites/default/files/2019-06/NNL2018%2BpreviousYears_revR.pdfOrganizers: Linda H Bergersen and Jon Storm-Mathisen in cooperation with the University of Oslo, the Nansen Neuroscience Network (NNN), and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (DNVA).
