Between 1,200 and 3,000 Danes suffer from narcolepsy, as this disorder is called. During the sudden attacks, sufferers experience an extreme craving for sleep. New Danish research indicates that narcolepsy is an autoimmune disorder.  An autoimmune disease is when the body attacks itself, as it does, for instance, in the case of arthritis or psoriasis....
Danish blood donors supplied the samples needed to prove the connection. House cats and other animals in the cat family, including leopards, can spread the infectious disease toxoplasmosis via their droppings. The disease is also known as rabbit fever and pregnant women, in particular, are at risk. If a pregnant woman is infected with the...
The causes of mental disorders may stem from the earliest stages of pregnancy, during foetal neurodevelopment. This is shown in a study published in Nature Neuroscience, conducted by scientists from the Lundbeck Foundation Initiative for Integrative Psychiatric Research. Particular genetic variants in human DNA, which are important for the development of the brain early in...
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen played a key role in the development of a method for tailoring drugs to combat a broad range of diseases. If you need a drug to regulate specific biochemical signals to the body’s cells, you need to know what the cells’ receptors look like – how the cells receive...
Do you drive too fast? Have you had a lot of sexual partners? Or do you have a tendency to drink too much alcohol? Then you probably have a special genetic profile. Scientists have investigated the correlation between genes and risky behaviours – and found clear links. By examining the DNA profiles – the genetic...
The Lundbeck Foundation ‘Ascending Investigators’ programme is now open for applications. The Lundbeck Foundation wishes to support established and talented scientists working in the field of biomedical sciences research in Denmark. In this context, we have added a new funding programme for experienced researchers to the Foundation’s grant strategy. We call the programme ‘Lundbeck Foundation...
Thanks to an ingenious technique – which is able to make tissue transparent – Danish researchers have discovered a ‘plumbing system’ that rids the brain of waste products. While we sleep. This is shown by new research recently published in the scientific journal Nature Neuroscience. The findings came to light in studies of the brains...
The Lundbeck Foundation’s Board of Trustees recently decided to fund new Danish brain research to the tune of DKK 228 million. A considerable proportion of this funding goes to projects focusing on personalised medicine in support of the Danish government’s strategy in this area. Brain disorders cost society more than cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease...
As a result of the Lundbeck Foundation’s new grant strategy, the Foundation will cover all or part of universities’ project-related, indirect costs in the future. The Foundation’s funding for research has been on the increase for some years, and when the volume of research increases so do the universities’ costs – administration expenses, operation of...
We are offering a new type of research grant. From 2019, researchers can apply for a Lundbeck Foundation Professorship. A Lundbeck Foundation Professor is an internationally recognised researcher and research director who makes a significant contribution to neuroscience research in the broadest sense, while also developing and mentoring junior researchers. The aim of the professorship...
