‘Metric Life’ website, a new online platform dedicated to the critical study of the rising phenomenon of the Quantified Self and self-tracking culture.
The results of the Science publication show that sex-specific responses to climate change in plants alter population species characteristic and performance. The pace at which the species characteristic responds to climate change is unprecedentedly fast, suggesting that species range shifts are lagging substantially behind climate change.
Høye and his co-authors have published an ambitious study that has used more than 10,000 datasets to examine how the phenological characteristics—such as the timing of reproduction—of various taxa alter in response to climate change, and suggests that differing levels of climate sensitivity could lead to the desynchronization of seasonal events…
This week a method potentially applicable in detection and personalisation of cancer treatment developed during his PhD studies by Tomasz K. Wojdacz in collaboration with Associate Professor Lise Lotte Hansen was independently evaluated for clinical use and the results of that study have been published in the prestigious Nature Biotechnology.

The new research reveals the mechanism behind a cancer-relevant inhibition of human sugar transporting protein. The hope is that this will guide future drug design targeting sugar uptake mechanisms. Ultimately, this will lead to progress in a number of important common conditions, such as diabetes and cancer.
