Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have developed stem cell models that can reveal the mechanisms behind the development of dementia – a common disease for which no treatment is currently available. The new stem cell models have revealed new imbalances in nerve cells. This paves the way for developing medication that can stop dementia before it manifests itself.
The University of Copenhagen is establishing a new cluster, ISBUC, which compiles researchers from the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences with a strong common interest in the structural biology of biomolecules. The cluster thus represents a solid framework that makes research into structural biology more readily accessible to other researchers, and which will have a significant impact on future research into human health and diseases and into the application of biomolecules in biotechnology and medicine.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have developed a new type of vaccine in collaboration with a Danish biotech company to participate in eradicating the unpleasant bacterial disease furunculosis amongst both wild and farmed sea trout.
From rainy England to sunny Australia to slightly colder Copenhagen. After 20 years at the Heart Research Institute in Sydney, Professor with Special Responsibilities Clare Hawkins just moved into her new office at the Department of Biomedical Sciences. She has dedicated her life to paving the way for new and better heart disease medicine and now she is excited to pass her knowledge along as a teacher.
Monday 20 March at 21:30 Professor at Center for Neuroscience Steven Goldman participates in the first episode of the new TV series Modern Miracles on DR2, where he talks about his research into using stem cells to treat brain diseases.
On 21 April 2017 Professor Jens Juul Holst receives the prestigious international Harrington Prize for Innovation in Medicine. The prize is given to scientists who have delivered notable scientific results with great potential within innovation, creativity and clinical application.
