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...
Scientific report indicates that more research is needed into how general practitioners examine for and treat throat infections.

A population that built houses from tusks of the woolly mammoth and created exquisite tools has suddenly come to light. DNA from this population will also be included in a study of the genetic composition of brain diseases and mental disorders. ‘Well, hello! There you are,’ exclaimed researchers at the Lundbeck Foundation GeoGenetics Centre at...
A Danish-Italian team of scientists has demonstrated that passing even weak electrical currents through the brain can trigger unexpected reactions. All over the world, people with no medical background are experimenting with electrical brain stimulation: They are attaching electrodes to their head and hook it up to the direct current in the hopes of improving...
Scientists at Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, are conducting experiments in an effort to identify a biological ‘fingerprint’ for migraines. The substance sildenafil – the primary component in Viagra – is commonly administered to treat erectile dysfunction. However sildenafil also happens to have other creative applications, and the substance is now being used in an experiment...
A report on the gender distribution among the Lundbeck Foundation’s grant recipients and prizewinners has resulted in the foundation – as one of the first in Denmark – now implementing a diversity policy and working more strategically with diversity. Men and women have almost the exact same success rate when applying for grants from the...
Danish and Costa Rican scientists are the first to test snake venom with the help of synthetic human proteins. The project has been carried out with funding from the Lundbeck Foundation. If you want to resist an attack from a powerful opponent, it helps to know what weapon they use. The better you understand their...
As part of the Lundbeck Foundation’s new award strategy, we are launching a programme with the aim of encouraging scientists to apply for funding for their most audacious ideas. Lundbeck Foundation’s new grant programme, LF Experiment, focuses on funding the most extraordinary and ambitious research projects, and we are now accepting applications. If you hold...
