Arne Klungland is a Professor at Oslo University Hospital and a Guest Researcher at Beijing Institute of Genomics.
Arne's research group aims to elucidate new mechanisms of dynamic modifications related to repair and regulation of the mammalian genome and to address genome instabilities associated with cancer development. Most of their research is based upon the design of novel mutant organisms and our current models also include genes affecting post translational modifications in RNA and proteins; epigenetic inheritance. Currently, Arne's group has a strong focus on studying dynamic modifications in RNA.
The research group, and Institute, are truly international with 70% international PhD students and post doctoral fellows. These include Spain, Sweden, Germany, Ethiopia, UK, USA, China, France, etc.
