How do you design drugs with fewer side effects? And how can you stimulate the brain using a weak electric current or ultrasound? These are a few of the topics covered by a number of scientific research projects that the Lundbeck Foundation has recently decided to support with grants totalling DKK 100 million. There are...
Cytologist and Professor with Special Responsibilities at the University of Copenhagen Simon Bekker-Jensen is awarded the Lundbeck Foundation Young Investigator Prize. He was appointed professor at the young age of 36, has published his results in the world’s leading scientific journals and has dedicated his career to discovering how cells respond to stress and how,...
They’re not yet 30 but they have already shown outstanding talent, which is why three young researchers are receiving a Lundbeck Foundation Talent Prize. ‘We have three very promising research talents here, and they’ve all impressed us by producing outstanding research results at a young age. But besides publishing copious articles and contributing new knowledge...
How is our gut flora affected when our immune system is compromised during illness? This is the question a team of researchers at Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, would now like to answer by analysing 1,200 faecal samples. The biological samples lie, side by side, in small plastic tubes with airtight lids in the freezer at...
A Brain Prize meeting ended up having a major impact on 29-year-old molecular biologist Camilla Lundbye. She subsequently received a Lundbeck Foundation scholarship and is now taking a PhD at the University of Toronto in Canada, with one of the world’s most prestigious brain researchers as her supervisor. If you want to dance, you need...
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...
Parkinson-symptomer invaderede fra tarmsystemet
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...
Muslinge-lim som erstatning for operationstråd
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...
