Denmark must be one of the world’s leading brain research nations, and we must have a healthy pipeline of talented biomedical scientists. These are the objectives of the new grant strategy that Lundbeck Foundation will be launching this autumn. Lundbeck Foundation awards grants worth around DKK 500 million to biomedical science research every year. With...
Why do people develop bulges, or pockets, in the large intestine? Using a Danish analytical technique, scientists have obtained new information which may help find an answer. When people develop a painful, and sometimes extremely dangerous, infection in pockets in the large intestine, there are close links with a distinct genetic ‘cocktail’. This is shown...
Danish and British scientists are the first to prove that electric shocks can relieve severe depression. In essence, the reason is that electric shocks appear to have an effect on a specific area in the forward part of the frontal lobe – an area in which, among other things, emotional information relating to an individual’s...
The University of Copenhagen and Lundbeck Foundation are establishing a new research centre to map the interaction between human DNA and diseases through the ages. The centre is the first of its kind in the world. It will focus on neurological diseases and psychiatric disorders, and the data will come from bones and teeth. The...
Knowledge is going to save the world. This is one of the reasons why we grant more than 500 million Danish kroner to biomedical sciences research every year, focusing particularly on the brain. And it’s why our new magazine is out today. We publish the magazine to inform you about the outcomes of our investments...
The Lundbeck Foundation had a successful 2017 with continued growth in turnover and a record-high profit of DKK 3.9 billion before special items. The Lundbeck Foundation also awarded grants worth DKK 507 million to biomedical sciences research – the highest level in the foundation’s history. • Turnover climbed 5% from DKK 33,748 million in 2016...
The tireless efforts of these four leading scientists to understand Alzheimer’s have provided the foundation for treatment of one of the most devastating diseases of our era. For this, they are receiving the world’s most valuable prize for brain research, The Lundbeck Foundation Brain Prize, worth 1 million euros. Denmark sees 7,500 new cases of...
A large international team of scientists has retrieved the entire DNA from an 11,500-year-old skeleton of a child from Alaska. Their finding has just been published in Nature. This discovery pushes the date of the first migration to the American continent back by 10,000 years. It also shows that, at one point, the Native Americans...
With calls for applications for two major thematic grants, the Lundbeck Foundation is ready to provide funding of up to 250 million Danish kroner for brain research. The larger of the two is aimed at personalised medicine, supporting national strategy in this field. Brain disorders cost society more than cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease together....
With the help of an ingenious calculation method, a Danish-American research project has identified a further 62 human genes which, “with very high likelihood”, will develop carcinogenic mutations. This method enables identification of the cause of many cases of cancer which, today, end up being classified as ‘inexplicable’. We can learn a lot about a...
