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...
In trials with rats, scientists at Aarhus University have confirmed a theory that it is likely that many cases of Parkinson’s disease start in the gut. A cohort of lab rats, which were genetically manipulated and programmed to produce extremely large amounts of the protein alpha-synuclein, are the main protagonists in a research article on...
Scientists at Aarhus University are in the process of developing a new type of adhesive to glue together human tissue. It’s all about building a variety of the chemical tricks already mastered by mussels into man-made materials. A surgeon has completed surgery: whatever needed to be removed or corrected has been attended to, and the...
Five talented medical students are right now on their way across the Atlantic to San Francisco to participate in the Lundbeck Foundation research programme DARE – Danish American Research Exchange. Zacharias, Pernille, Jawad, Aleksander and Jasmin are the names of the five students, and they will all be conducting research at either Stanford University or...
The Lundbeck Foundation has earmarked up to DKK 100 million for postdoc scholarships next year. Send us your application by 6 November 2019. A postdoctoral position is your first step towards a career as an independent researcher, and it is an extremely important element of a senior researcher’s development. For this reason, every year, the...
Experiences gained by doctors in this field may also have a positive impact on other types of surgery. It is no longer uncommon to see the elderly leaving hospital for home only a few days after they have been given a new knee or hip. A new scientific study, recently published in the Danish Medical...
The Lundbeck Foundation has earmarked up to DKK 100 million for fellowships and expects to appoint ten new fellows in 2020. Applications are now welcome. Every year, the Lundbeck Foundation awards scholarships to particularly promising young scientists who are looking to establish or develop their own research team. We call these scholarships Lundbeck Foundation Fellowships...
It’s a well-known fact that the old and the sick are particularly susceptible to influenza. But why does the flu cause such havoc in apparently fit and healthy people that they – even the young – can die from it? This question has been puzzling medical science for many years, and eight researchers from Aarhus...
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen are the first in the world to genetically engineer human cells to construct a detailed picture of the battle plan bacteria and viruses deploy when they make us ill. This discovery may lead to new therapies, eliminating the need for antibiotics. Bacteria and viruses have a sweet tooth! It’s...
