Mette Habekost awarded an Integrated PhD fellowship by Aarhus University

2016.12.05 | People

Mette Habekost was awarded a fully financed Integrated PhD fellowship by Aarhus University. Her project "The regulatory role of AβPP Intracellular Domain in Alzheimer’s Disease"​ will have Arne Lund Jørgensen as main supervisor and Mark Denham and Per Qvist as co-supervisors. She started the project on the 1st of November 2016.

Two grants awarded to Anders Nykjaer

2016.11.30 | Research news

Anders Nykjaer was granted DKK 750.000 by the Novo Nordisk Foundation for the project entitled “SorCS1 – boosting energy expenditure in obesity”. He also received a grant from the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Association (Scleroseforeningen) for the project entitled: ”Functional characterisation of the multiple sclerosis risk gene SORCS3."

Marco Capogna granted 2 million DKK by AUFF NOVA to study novel neuron types in the mammalian brain

2016.11.25 | Research news

Marco Capogna will receive the grant over a 3 year period for a project dedicated to discover novel cellular mechanisms linking anxiety and emotion with sleep deprivation. The project aims to test the hypothesis that nitric oxide-expressing GABAergic neurons are key cellular element in this process.

Sadegh Nabavi granted 2 million DKK by AUFF NOVA to study fear

2016.11.24 | Research news

Sadegh Nabavi will receive the grant over a 3 year period for a project dedicated to map the brain circuit for an innate fear. The innate fear studied is in rodents for predator. Ultimately, the goal is to know what's the difference between a learned fear and innate fear at the circuit and synaptic levels.
