[28 Apr 2017] Ongoing global warming will result in elevated average water temperatures, as well as more frequent and intense heat waves. But what determines the upper temperature limit for fish? And more importantly, can fish adjust to increasing water temperatures? Andreas Ekström, a researcher at Gothenburg University, strives to answer these questions in his recently published PhD thesis.
[28 Apr 2017] Within seven days of vaccination, a blood test early after vaccination can predict whether vaccines based on living, modified viruses have had the desired effect. This is one of the results of a new study from a large European research collaboration on systems analysis of immune responses induced by a highly promising vaccine against Ebola in which University of Gothenburg is participating. This result can inform and accelerate rational development of other new vaccines based on living viruses.
