Researchers from Denmark, Australia and the USA are the brains behind the discovery, and the Lundbeck Foundation provided funding. Most moles are harmless, and non-cancerous. Unfortunately, however, there are exceptions, and the mole turns cancerous. In such cases, it is important to act fast to prevent the disease from spreading. One of the questions doctors...
We can use this discovery to gain a better understanding of how asthma develops. An asthma sufferer is actually a patient before he or she even receives a diagnosis. This is the finding of a Danish research project which was recently published as an article in the influential scientific journal Science Translational Medicine. The project...
New Danish study demonstrates that some dog allergy sufferers only react to male dogs. ‘We’re NEVER getting a dog!’ claim many families that struggle with asthma and allergies. And this may seem like a thoroughly sensible decision. In principle, a dog is not the allergy sufferer’s best friend, and many suffer badly when in the...
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,...
