  1. 1. Between stability and instability : Analyzing the influence of contradictory narratives in the Gripen E development on the collective sensemaking process

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/FöretagsekonomiLinköpings universitet/Filosofiska fakulteten; Linköpings universitet/FöretagsekonomiLinköpings universitet/Filosofiska fakulteten

    Author : Philipp Nils Patrick Kaiser; Susanne Lintner; [2020]
    Keywords : Sensemaking; Sensebreaking; Collective Sensemaking; Dominant Story; Dominating Narratives; Complexity; Innovation;

    Abstract : A growing number of organizations developing complex innovation projects face the dilemma that complexity demands more stability, resulting in increased sensemaking efforts, whilst innovation requires instability which encourages the organization to breakdown meaning. The aim of this study is to shed light on the simultaneous need for a strong sensemaking process and a breaking down in meaning in complex innovation projects by analyzing the collective sensemaking process through a storytelling lens.

  2. 2. How does greenspace design affect attractiveness to birds and humans in urban area?

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Chengyi Liu; [2020]
    Keywords : Urban ecology; City greenspace design; Ornithology;

    Abstract : City greenspaces are often considered as refuges for wildlife living in the urban area.At the same time, the original function of greenspaces is providing relaxing places forpeople. So, to provide suitable area for both humans and wildlife in the city, it isimportant to learn about the preference to city greenspace design by humans and birds. READ MORE

  3. 3. GIANT UNILAMELLAR VESICLES FOR PEPTIDE-MEMBRANE INTERACTION STUDIES USING FLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Biofysik och bioteknik

    Author : Martin Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Giant unilamellar vesicles; Lipid rafts; Fluorescence microscopy; Drug delivery;

    Abstract : Vesicles are a type of biological or biomimetic particle consisting of one or more often spherical bilayers made up of amphipathic molecules, creating a closed system. They can function as an encapsulating device, holding hydrophilic molecules on the inside of the bilayer membrane(s) or hydrophobic molecules in the non-polar interstitial space in the middle of the bilayers.

  5. 5. Fragment-screening by X-ray crystallography of human vaccinia related kinase 1

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Yousif Ali Rashid Majid; [2020]
    Keywords : Fragment based drug discovery; X-ray crystallography; screening; vaccinia related kinase 1; crystal optimization; fragment library design; differential scanning fluorimetry; Sprint Bioscience;

    Abstract : Fragment-screening by X-ray crystallography (XFS) is an expensive and low throughput fragment drug discovery screening method, and it requires a lot of optimization for each protein target. The advantages with this screening method are that it is very sensitive, it directly gives the three-dimensional structure of the protein-fragment complexes, and false positives are rarely obtained.
