Developing highly intrinsic IT-systems absent of errors

PhD defence, Wednesday 12 December 2018. Morten Krogh-Jespersen.

Mads Kuhlmann Andersen.
Measurement of spreading depolarization in Drosophila melanogaster. After immobilizing the fly, a reference electrode is inserted into the abdomen (bottom) and two glass microelectrodes (from left and right) are inserted into its brain. With one electrode we monitored the electrical activity of the brain during cooling and with the other the K+ concentration in the extracellular fluid in the brain. Spreading depolarization is characterized by an abrupt drop in electrical activity and a surge in extracellular K+ concentration and this occurs at the temperature where these insects go into coma.

Schematic representation of the proposed multifunctional nanostructure. The system consists of four modules carrying either multiple identical or different functional molecules, for instance a polymer for prolonging the circulation time in the blood stream, a targeting ligand for binding to specific disease-related receptors, an imaging agent for diagnostics and a bioactive drug.

PhD defence, Tuesday 20 November 2018. Anna Feldberg Marsbøll.

Sarah-Lina Aagaard Schild.
The image shows a screenshot of the video recordings used to study the course of parturition in outdoor-housed sows. Research concerning how the course of parturition progresses when sows give birth in huts, such as organic and free-range sows do, is sparse. In her PhD project, Sarah-Lina showed that the course of parturition affected early piglet mortality and saw indications that at high hut temperature sows changed their behaviour during parturition.

Impact of the course of parturition and the thermal environment for piglet survival when sows give birth outdoors
