Current Themes

In May 2016, Lundbeckfonden held a workshop to identify the most pertinent research areas in the field of biomedicine. At the workshop, leading Danish researchers and research administrators discussed emerging trends and areas in which increased Danish research efforts could be expected to have notable impact. Input from the workshop was taken into account when the foundation’s board of trustees defined the following two themes for Lundbeckfonden’s strategic grants in the coming years:

⦁ Increased understanding of disease mechanisms and improved prevention of disease
⦁ Development of new and more precise diagnostics and treatments
