A Danish research project aims to show whether women wishing to become pregnant should stay away from painkillers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and codeine. It is hoped that trials with fertilised eggs from mice and humans will help us understand whether headache medication plays a role when pregnancies terminate spontaneously in the early stages. ‘We...
The aim of a collaboration between researchers in Denmark and the USA is to glean new knowledge about the many different types of neurons that make the human brain work. It could have implications for the design of drugs for conditions such as dementia and for rehabilitation of patients after a stroke. The project is...
An overwhelming total of 293 applications poured in when the Lundbeck Foundation launched a new research funding programme – LF Experiments – earlier this year. The applications have now been reviewed and 31 projects ended up receiving funding. Each project receives almost DKK 2 million on average, and the total allocation to LF Experiments amounted...
The Lundbeck Foundation is awarding grants worth DKK 232 million to six leading neuroscientists: three at Aarhus University and three at the University of Copenhagen. The LF Professorships programme is the Foundation’s largest grant allocation to date. We need to move the brain higher up the agenda. This is why the Lundbeck Foundation is awarding...
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...
