A research project funded by the Lundbeck Foundation will analyse the health data of 2.8 million Danish mothers. The aim is to develop a kind of ‘red flag’ that will detect the onset of postpartum depression. Around 10-15% of all new mothers experience postpartum depression. It is extremely stressful for both mother and baby, partly...
From today, ten promising research talents can call themselves Lundbeck Foundation Fellows. They each receive DKK 10 million to conduct their research over the next five years, making this the largest Lundbeck Foundation Fellows programme ever. This is the thirteenth time the Lundbeck Foundation is awarding fellowships and, yet again, the recipients are young researchers,...
A major scientific study funded by the Lundbeck Foundation will analyse the genetics underlying febrile seizures – and seek to answer a question that has long challenged scientists: Do febrile seizures increase the risk of developing epilepsy later in life? Any parent’s alarm bells will begin to ring when their babies or toddlers have febrile...
How do you design drugs with fewer side effects? And how can you stimulate the brain using a weak electric current or ultrasound? These are a few of the topics covered by a number of scientific research projects that the Lundbeck Foundation has recently decided to support with grants totalling DKK 100 million. There are...
Cytologist and Professor with Special Responsibilities at the University of Copenhagen Simon Bekker-Jensen is awarded the Lundbeck Foundation Young Investigator Prize. He was appointed professor at the young age of 36, has published his results in the world’s leading scientific journals and has dedicated his career to discovering how cells respond to stress and how,...
They’re not yet 30 but they have already shown outstanding talent, which is why three young researchers are receiving a Lundbeck Foundation Talent Prize. ‘We have three very promising research talents here, and they’ve all impressed us by producing outstanding research results at a young age. But besides publishing copious articles and contributing new knowledge...
How is our gut flora affected when our immune system is compromised during illness? This is the question a team of researchers at Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, would now like to answer by analysing 1,200 faecal samples. The biological samples lie, side by side, in small plastic tubes with airtight lids in the freezer at...
A Brain Prize meeting ended up having a major impact on 29-year-old molecular biologist Camilla Lundbye. She subsequently received a Lundbeck Foundation scholarship and is now taking a PhD at the University of Toronto in Canada, with one of the world’s most prestigious brain researchers as her supervisor. If you want to dance, you need...
In recent years, researchers in a number of countries, including Denmark, have been experimenting with the use of psychedelic substances in the design of drugs for mental disorders. The preliminary results are promising. Just imagine if you could take a psychedelic trip to relieve persistent, severe depression. Or maybe to get rid of it once...
Scientists from Denmark and Japan have peeked inside the engine room of the pumps that maintain the acid level in the stomach. And it was no easy task – the pumps are ultra-small! These pumps – in fact proteins, each measuring only about five millionths of a millimetre – are produced in special cells in...
