8 million DKK and two new research instruments have been granted to DANDRITE researchers
Early Christmas gifts were recently distributed in the form of grants from Danish foundations. Among the recipients are five DANDRITE researchers.
Several DANDRITE-researchers enters 2024 with a big smile and a financial back-up from the Danish foundations who recently distributed a portion of their grants. Among the recipients were:
- Group Leader Sadegh Nabavi recieves the Novo Nordisk Project Grant in Bioscience and Basic Biomedicine and a total amount of 2,993,543 DKK. over three years.
- Group Leader Chao Sun recieves the Novo Nordisk Project Grant in Bioscience and Basic Biomedicine and a total amount of 2,999,173 DKK over three years.
- Postdoc Yumiko Kitazawa-Kawamura from Kitazawa Lab recieves the Lundbeck Foundation Experiment Grant and a total amount of 1,999,983 DKK over two years.
- Associate Professor Magnus Kjærgaard together with colleagues from the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics receives a research infrastructure grant from Carlsbergfonden to purchase a Biosensor Instrument for Ligand Interactions of Membrane Proteins. It is an instrument that will be open to all, and can be used to measure interactions between molecules. The researchers hope that it can support the early phase of drug development by identifying molecules that interact with medically relevant membrane proteins, thereby contributing to supporting university translational research.
- Professor Poul Nissen recieves a research infrastructure grant from Carlsbergfondet to purchase a Typhoon 5 Integrated Imager for Quantitative Studies of Biomolecules. The instrument is crucial for accurate biomolecule imaging and quantification using fluorescence and colorimetry. It supports a wide range of applications and is essential for advancing research at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics.
A warm congratulation to all the recipients - and a Merry Christmas!
