Scientists show how cells protect their DNA from catastrophic damage

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have unveiled a profound biological process that explains how DNA can be damaged during genome replication.



Why stem cells need to stick with their friends

Scientists at University of Copenhagen and University of Edinburgh have identified a core set of functionally relevant factors which regulates embryonic stem cells’ ability for self-renewal.



Fatal cholesterol disease overlooked and untreated

Hereditary high blood cholesterol leads to premature heart disease. It is overlooked and untreated virtually worldwide – including in Europe.



New 3D method used to grow miniature pancreas

An international team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen have successfully developed an innovative 3D method to grow miniature pancreas from progenitor cells.



One in four has alarmingly few intestinal bacteria

International ground-breaking research with participation of Danish investigators from University of Copenhagen shows that one in four Danes has serious problems with the trillion of bacteria living in their intestines.



700.000 year old horse gets its genome sequenced

It is nothing short of a world record in DNA research that scientists at the Centre for GeoGenetics at the Natural History Museum of Denmark (University of Copenhagen) have hit. They have sequenced the so far oldest genome from a prehistoric creature.



New research provides insights into the ability of muscles to take in glucose

New studies conducted by a Danish research group from University of Copenhagen have identified a molecule which can explain why blood sugar regulation functions poorly in patients with type 2 diabetes and why exercise increases the body's ability to take in glucose.



Chemistry breakthrough sheds new light on illness and health

From microscopes to nuclear imaging scanners, imaging technology is growing ever more vital for the world's hospitals, whether for the diagnosis of illness or for research into new cures.



New substance effectively combats multi-resistant bacteria

In Europe alone, more than 25,000 people die each year from infections caused by multi-resistant bacteria. Researchers from University of Copenhagen have now developed and characterized a substance that quickly and effectively kills the virulent bacteria.



Molecular discovery puts cancer treatment in a new perspective

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen and the National Institutes of Health have obtained ground-breaking new knowledge about proteases - important enzymes which, among other things, play a role in the development of cancer cells.



Danish chemists in molecular chip breakthrough

Electronic components built from single molecules using chemical synthesis could pave the way for smaller, faster and more green and sustainable electronic devices. Now for the first time, a transistor made from just one molecular monolayer has been made to work where it really counts. On a computer chip.



Danish researchers expose new cause of life-threatening disease

Danish researchers have just published findings that explain a previously unknown mechanism used by cells to communicate with one another.



Researchers reveal malaria's deadly grip

International researchers have identified how malaria parasites growing inside red blood cells stick to the sides of blood vessels in severe cases of malaria.



Researchers discover new explanation for diabetes and poor growth

A group of researchers from the University of Copenhagen has taken a significant step towards understanding the reasons for both diabetes and growth hormone deficiency.
