    • Pulmonary function measures reflect respiratory health and are used in the diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. We tested genome-wide association with forced expiratory volume in 1 second and the ratio of forced expiratory volume in 1 second to forced vital capacity in 48,201 individuals of European ancestry with follow up of the top associations in up to an additional 46,411 individuals. We identified new regions showing association (combined P < 5 × 10(-8)) with pulmonary function in or near MFAP2, TGFB2, HDAC4, RARB, MECOM (also known as EVI1), SPATA9, ARMC2, NCR3, ZKSCAN3, CDC123, C10orf11, LRP1, CCDC38, MMP15, CFDP1 and KCNE2. Identification of these 16 new loci may provide insight into the molecular mechanisms regulating pulmonary function and into molecular targets for future therapy to alleviate reduced lung function.

  • Genetic variation near IRS1 associates with reduced adiposity and an impaired metabolic profile.
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Nature genetics. - 1546-1718. ; 43:8, s. 753
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Genome-wide association studies have identified 32 loci influencing body mass index, but this measure does not distinguish lean from fat mass. To identify adiposity loci, we meta-analyzed associations between similar to 2.5 million SNPs and body fat percentage from 36,626 individuals and followed up the 14 most significant (P &lt; 10(-6)) independent loci in 39,576 individuals. We confirmed a previously established adiposity locus in FTO (P = 3 x 10(-26)) and identified two new loci associated with body fat percentage, one near IRS1 (P = 4 x 10(-11)) and one near SPRY2 (P = 3 x 10(-8)). Both loci contain genes with potential links to adipocyte physiology. Notably, the body-fat-decreasing allele near IRS1 is associated with decreased IRS1 expression and with an impaired metabolic profile, including an increased visceral to subcutaneous fat ratio, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, risk of diabetes and coronary artery disease and decreased adiponectin levels. Our findings provide new insights into adiposity and insulin resistance.

  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • between you and me This presentation focuses on the exhibition by Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson, entitled “between you and me”. The project centres on the representations and intrinsic value of things and calls into question the myriad bases upon which we construct such representations. Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson have for some time in their work examined specific relationships between human and non-human animals – in “nanoq: flat out and bluesome” the polar bear, in “Big Mouth” the Tasmanian Tiger, in “(a)fly” urban pets etc. “between you and me” examines a contemporary set of relationships between humans and seals, with its particular focus on the coastal areas of Iceland where humans and seals, with its particular focus on the coastal areas of Iceland where interaction of one sort or another has been customary for many centuries. In the Kalmar Art Museum, the installation was interspersed throughout the entire building – on the ground floor, the library, the upper stairwell and the main gallery on the top floor. In this upper space, the artists placed their key video work, “the naming of things”, in direct dialogue with selected works from the collection at Kalmar including drawings, prints, paintings, photographs and textiles, all of which in one way or another represent animals. Our colonization of the building in this way, its implications for the audience, together with our staging of a public seminar event held during the exhibition are all discussed during this presentation. In addition, short video extracts will be screened. Because most representations are constructed to perform some agenda of our own – in the case of animals, to entertain, to inform, to provide food, to remember, to stand for all others of the species, to symbolize human behavioural characteristics etc – in this process, the animal itself is occluded – eclipsed by its avatar or likeness, which is always a simplification and therefore must accordingly signify a loss. Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson’s work challenges the anthropocentric systems of convenience that sanction a daily acceptance of such loss and in an attempt to address such historical and contemporary imbalance, posits the alternative idea of “parities in meeting”.

  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • between you and me is a visual art project that on the face of it explores human relationships to the seal, an animal widely appropriated in Western culture for a variety of human representations and emotions. For the purpose of our enquiry, we have focused mainly on this animal within a specific geographical context, allowing us to draw attention to (some of) these perspectives in an attempt to distinguish and separate the animal from its representations. It is this struggle or non-correspondence that lies at the heart of between you and me. The relationships between its components and the challenges each component presents to the others constitute the substance of the work. Ultimately, whilst encompassing issues as broad as semiotics, compassion, empathy and subjection, it tests the fallibility of representations and our unreliable dependency upon them.

  • Ingår i: Reconstructing the Animal, 18th March to 15th April Plimsoll Gallery, Tasmania, Australia..
  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Curator: Dr Yvette Watt Artists: Adam Geczy and Jan Guy (Australia),Angela Singer (New Zealand), Harri Kallio (Finland/NewYork), Mark Wilson and Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir (Iceland/UK), Kate James (Australia) and Alicia King (Tasmania) The extinction of species, environmental destruction, global warming and the roles and fates of animals in this context has seen a shift in the consideration of animals and human-animal relationships. Reconstructing the Animal includes the work of a number of artists whose primary focus considers this ‘re-thinking’ of our relationships with animal life. The title of the exhibition alludes to the variety of ways in which these artists have ‘reconstructed’ animals. At times this ‘reconstruction’ takes place in a literal sense, such as the ‘recycled taxidermy’ works of New Zealand artist, Angela Singer, or the work of Finnish-born, New York based artist Harri Kallio, who presents images based on his reconstructions of long-extinct dodos. However, the exhibition is also a metaphorical reconstruction; we are asked as a viewer to reconsider or reflect upon our attitudes to animals

  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • PSL and Artemis invited six contemporary visual artists to respond to the Artemis collection and new work for presentation at PSL. Artemis is an amazing storage facility based in Holbeck, Leeds which contains thousands of objects relating to areas such as world cultures (Africa, North America, China, Egypt, Ancient Rome, Japan etc), natural history (including a large taxidermy collection), toys, science, social history, textiles and costume, paintings and pictures, ceramics, and twentieth-century furniture, among others. The project possibly invites responses around the following; the archive; artists’ interventions; systems for classification, storage and display; museology; social history; the art object

    • Hugmyndin að sýningunni Í bili var valin úr tillögum sem sendar voru inn síðastliðið haust vegna haustverkefnis Hafnarborgar. Sýningin vísar til hins sögulega fyrirbæris furðustofu eða Wunderkammer sem talið er marka upphaf safna nútímans, á sama tíma og hinar mismunandi fræðigreinar verða til. Stór hópur listamanna sýna verk sín sem flest eru ný og fjalla á einn eða annan hátt um tengsl myndlistar og þekkingar sköpunar. Listamennirnir sem eiga verk á sýningunni eru þau: Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir & Mark Wilson, Daníel Björnsson, Gretar Reynisson, Haraldur Jónsson, Hildigunnur Birgisdóttir, Hugsteypan (Ingunn Fjóla Ingþórsdóttir & Þórdís Jóhannesdóttir), Ingirafn Steinarsson, Jeannette Castioni, Magnús Árnason, Olga Bergmann, Ólöf Nordal og Skyr Lee Bob (Erna Ómarsdóttir, Guðni Gunnarsson & Lieven Dousselaere). Viðamikil dagskrá hefur verið í tengslum við sýninguna og fyrir skemmstu var haldið vel heppnað málþing, Bil beggja: Safnið sem vettvangur lista og lærdóms þar sem rædd voru meðal annars tengsl listasafnsins við uppruna safna og spurningum velt upp um hlutverk listheimsins í að lýsa, greina og varpa ljósi á þekkinguna um heiminn. Fimmtudaginn 20 október kl. 20 ætlar Jeannette Castioni að spjalla við gesti um verk sitt ,,Framtíðin er úrelt,, ásamt sýningarstjóranum Ólöfu Gerði Sigfúsdóttur.
