Research In Estonia intervjueeris hiljuti Migreventioni tegevjuhti Katrina Laksi ja uurisid lähemalt Migreventioni eesmärkide kohta.

“Most people in need are not getting adequate treatment at the moment. By improving treatment pathways, patients can avoid the complications that arise when migraines get out of control. You can never get rid of the problem. If you are a migraine patient, you will stay a migraine patient, but you can keep some of the migraine episodes away."
Sel nädalal osaleme Araabia Ühendemiraatides Dubais toimuval maailmanäitusel! Meie välisturundusüksus Research In Estonia tutvustab, kuidas Eesti teadus saab kaasa aidata globaalsete probleemide lahendamisele. 🧬🌍

Just täna, 15. detsembril toimub ülikoolide päev, kus president Kersti Kaljulaid, ETAg-i juhatuse esimees Anu Noorma, hariduse erisaadik Birgit Lao ning 11 Eesti tippteadlast annavad ülevaate personaalmeditsiini, targa linna, hariduse ja ringmajanduse valdkondadest. Ühiselt otsitakse teaduse ja ettevõtuse koostöökohti.

Ülikoolide päev on osa Eesti haridust tutvustavast nädalast maailmanäitusell. EXPO 2020 Dubai jääb avatuks 2022. aasta märtsi lõpuni ning seal osaleb 190 riiki.
12.-16. detsembril toimub Araabia Ühendemiraatides Dubais maailmanäitusel haridusnädal. Eesti haridust tutvustatakse maailmanäitusel esimest korda. 🇦🇪🇪🇪

Haridusnädal algab 12.-14. detsembril toimuva RewirEd2021 rahvusvahelise konverentsi ja haridusministrite paneelaruteluga 13. detsembril, millest võtab osa minister Liina Kersna. Sellele järgneb hariduse tulevikulahendustele keskenduv ärifoorum 14. detsembril, mille avab minister Liina Kersna. Haridusnädala lõpetavad ülikoolide päev 15. detsembril ja haridustehnoloogia päev 16. detsembril.

Eesti hariduse erisaadiku Birgit Lao sõnul on haridusel tänavu maailmanäitusel väga suur roll, kuna seal arutatakse nii haridusvaldkonna vajadusi kui ka otsitakse võimalikke lahendusi. "Dubai EXPO-l avaneb erakordne võimalus maailma mastaabis haridusdiplomaatia ja haridusteenuste arengu kiirenemiseks. Tänavu on fookus digilahendustel, eriti sellistel, mis võimaldavad just koroonast tingitud koolikorralduses sujuvamat õpet," selgitab Birgit Lao.

Kui teadlasest saab president.

Avaldasime TÜMRI veebilehel refereerituna artikli Alar Karisest ja tema teekonnast teadlasena, mis ilmus paar päeva tagasi Eesti Teadusagentuuri poolt hallatud veebilehel Research In Estonia.

Sõna saavad mitmed TÜMRI-ga seotud teadlased nagu Andres Metspalu, Raivo Raid, Tambet Tõnissoo, Sulev Kuuse ja Tarmo Annilo.

„Kui teadmisi napib, siis tuleb seda öelda. Kui ma midagi ei tea, on mul kombeks seda selgelt tunnistada. Poliitikute puhul näen tendentsi anda jah või ei vastuseid, kõik on nende jaoks kas must või valge. Teaduses on palju rohkem varjundeid, mis paneb teadlased lakkamatult küsimusi esitama,“ sõnab Vabariigi President Alar Karis.

🇪🇪 Сьогодні ми відзначаємо 3️⃣0️⃣-річчя з Дня відновлення незалежності Естонської держави 🎉

Цей шлях не був легким, але його було пройдено з любов’ю у рівній мірі тут і за кордоном. Згадаймо сьогодні з вдячністю тих, хто боровся за прийняття Балтійського меморандуму у 1979 році, і тих, хто роком пізніше, не боячись репресій, підписав «Лист сорока» на захист естонської мови та культури. Подякуймо всім тим, хто зберігав естонську ідентичність у серці та діяв на благо цього в Естонії та в усьому світі. Тридцять років тому естонський народ повернув собі право самостійно вирішувати власну долю 👏

Велика вдячність усім естонцям за кордоном за те, що з власної волі та у свій вільний час боролися за краще майбутнє нашої держави. Особливо тішить, що естонська молодь, яка народилася поза межами Естонії, береже свою історію і культуру та готова дати естонській ідентичності нове дихання. Естонські організації та культурні товариства за кордоном робили і роблять надзвичайно важливу роботу, тож продовжуймо її з таким самим натхненням і далі! 🥰

Зі Святом нас усіх!
💙🖤🤍Elagu Eesti💙🖤🤍

After landmark BlueHealth study, Estonian scientists gain blue infrastructure expertise - Research In Estonia 05/04/2022

After landmark BlueHealth study, Estonian scientists gain blue infrastructure expertise - Research In Estonia

Green spaces in urban areas are definitely a hot topic, but what about blue spaces? 🤔🌊

“When people want to be in nature, what kinds of places do they want to go to? They want to go to the seaside, or to a lake, or to a river,” said Simon Bell, chair professor of landscape architecture at the Eesti Maaülikool/Estonian University of Life Sciences.

The BlueHealth study was a wide-ranging, pan-European research initiative with numerous outputs. One such output was the creation of a number of tools that can be used by policymakers and urban planners to inform their decisions regarding blue infrastructure.

Also, a very significant publication has been a book "Urban Blue Spaces" which was published by Routledge in September 2021.

Insights into the past of an almost eradicated childhood infection - Research In Estonia

Researchers reconstructed the oldest known DNA Hib genome 👀🧬

Meriam Guellil and other researchers from University of Tartu and University of Cambridge reconstructed the oldest known and first ancient DNA Hib genome from a young Anglo-Saxon child, from 6th-century England, who probably died from a plague co-infection.

“The skeleton of the young boy showed signs of disease consistent with bacterial septic arthritis, a progressive destruction of joints, probably caused by a prolonged and untreated Hib infection, which could have led to physical impairment and in the case of an additional meningeal infection also neurological impairment,” said Guellil.

Small country with a great potential for microbiome studies - Research In Estonia

Researchers from the University of Tartu have established the Estonian Microbiome cohort. 🧬

"We have used this data to extend the understanding of microbiome-host interactions, including the effect of long term antibiotic usage,” said Kertu Liis Krigul, one of the first authors of the paper.

"Estonians are among the lowest consumers of antibiotics in Europe, suggesting an even stronger effect in other populations,” said Oliver Aasmets, the first author of the paper.

The cohort is part of the Estonian Biobank and includes a stool, oral and plasma samples from 2,509 participants and is supplemented with multi-omic measurements, questionnaires covering participants’ dietary preferences, living environment, various lifestyle choices, and regular linkages to national electronic health records.

The study was published in Nature Communications.
