The popular notion of the blonde, Scandinavian-looking Viking has just been knocked for six. It turns out that some Vikings were dark-haired and others decidedly mousey. The Vikings actually had a well-mixed gene pool, and some even had southern European and Asian roots. This is demonstrated in a scientific article in Nature. The article was...
A Lundbeck Foundation researcher has headed a study to map activity in 80,000 different brain cells, which in animal trials have been proven to help control complicated blood sugar processes. This could have implications for treatment of type 2 diabetes in humans. Researchers around the world reacted with amazement in 2016 to an article published...
Lundbeck Foundation researchers are using public education in an attempt to spread the real facts about migraine. This battle poses a number of challenges. Maude was the wife of bank manager Hans Christian Varnæs in the iconic Danish historical drama Matador, and poor Maude often had a rather tormented existence. For many years, she took...
Lundbeck Foundation researchers have analysed 30,000-year-old material excavated from a Mexican mountain cave – where the discovery of stone tools suggests that the first humans arrived in North America at least 15,000 years earlier than thought. The findings have been published in an article in Nature. These DNA analyses will also be used in a...
It is vital for the immune system to kick into gear when the body is under attack, for instance by a pathogenic virus. However, problems can arise if the immune system is overstimulated. 25 researchers from Aarhus University (AU) have examined this very scenario in a scientific report, recently published together with colleagues from Norway,...
The Lundbeck Foundation is sending Danish medical students to the USA for the sixth successive year. Once the coronavirus situation has settled sufficiently for them to travel to the US to develop their skills, five highly qualified Danish medical students will be ready to fly directly to San Francisco in California. They have a ten-month-long...
With a total of EUR 32 million in Series B investment, Dutch VarmX can progress to the next phase of development of its drug candidate VMX-C001 – and Lundbeckfonden Ventures is one of the participating investors. Many people at risk of thrombosis take anticoagulants known as factor Xa inhibitors. However, these drugs can result in...
On 1 August, 47-year-old British neuroscientist Martin Meyer, from top-ranking King’s College London, will take up the position of Director of The Brain Prize – the world’s largest and most prestigious brain research prize awarded each year by the Lundbeck Foundation. Brain research is the Lundbeck Foundation’s special focus area, and The Brain Prize is...
Supported by a Lundbeck Foundation Fellowship worth 10 million Danish kroner, eight dedicated researchers can now spend the next five years devoting themselves to their research.
