Physical location

In 2016, the Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience (DANDRITE) will be relocated to a new state-of-the-art facility on the University Park campus. (Illustration from the competition: Cubo Arkitekter A/S)

At present, DANDRITE is based partly at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (building 3130), where Director and core Group Leader Prof. Poul Nissen is based, and partly at the Department of Biomedicine (building 1171 and building 1182), where the other two core Group leaders Prof. Anders Nykjær and Prof. Poul Henning Jensen are based, well as DANDRITE's four research Group leaders Anne von Philipsborn, Duda Kvitsiani, Keisuke Yonehara, Mark Denham, and Sadegh Nabavi. The departments are closely located within a few hundred meters of each other at Aarhus University.

It is planned that DANDRITE ultimately will move into the new 10,000 sq m Biomedicine building to be completed in 2016. DANDRITE will then be situated at the heart of the health research activities at Aarhus University, in surroundings that will provide the perfect framework for development of the Institute. In the immediate vicinity of the Institute are the biomedical research activities at Aarhus University and state-of-the art animal facilities. Closely associated infrastructures will seed the formation of a vibrant research environment and ensure a strong interdisciplinary, integral and translational capacity at the DANDRITE Institute.
