The first Aarhus satellite will provide both students and scientists with an opportunity for a new approach to research via satellites in a new collaboration with the Danish space company GomSpace A/S. The project’s core mission is to study the way nanosatellites can be used to carry out scientific investigations. The satellite is called AUSAT-1,…
On 7 April, IT companies from all over Denmark are once again flocking to the IT City Katrinebjerg in Aarhus to participate in the Katrinebjerg Career Day at Aarhus University.
The Israeli Biopharmaceutical company RedHill Biopharma Ltd. (NASDAQ: RDHL) (Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange: RDHL) has extended its collaboration with researchers at Aarhus University in order to develop a potentially promising drug candidate for cancer treatment. The drug candidate is based on a protease inhibitor molecule – an area in which the Danish…
More than 130 participants attended the first symposium organised by Novo Nordisk and Science and Technology on research in technologies that can be used to develop new pharmaceuticals. The theme for the day was joint projects and scientific work in the Aarhus Novo Nordisk Science and Talent Network, and the first three talented researchers were…
With a wingspan of more than three metres and a cruising speed of approximately 80 km/h, Denmark’s first large polar exploration drone of this type is now heading north. Here it will form part of the ultra-modern arsenal of research instruments at the Villum Research Station. On Monday 13 March, the drone was formally transferred to Aarhus…
New Danish research provides mechanistic insight into how DNA is monitored and repaired if damage occurs. The results may eventually help to improve the treatment of certain types of cancer, as the DNA repair complex provides a mechanism for cancer cells to resist chemotherapy.
Two top Aarhus University researchers in biology and physics are among the recipients of a new VILLUM FOUNDATION funding programme. The idea behind the new funding programme – VILLUM Investigator – is to enable outstanding researchers at Danish research institutions to study the subjects they are most passionate about.
There are now so many geese that they are creating conflict with both farming and aviation safety. This is shown in new research from DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy, Aarhus University. International collaboration has been initiated to find common solutions.

Ole Hertel has been appointed Professor in Assessment of Human Exposure to Air Pollution at the Department of Environmental Science, Aarhus University, as of 1 March 2017.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation’s Interdisciplinary Synergy Programme has granted DKK 14.7 million to three professors at Science and Technology and a German colleague to carry out research into social spiders as a source of new antimicrobial substances.
More than 130 researchers are attending the symposium at Aarhus University on 17 March with a focus on research in technologies that can be used to develop new pharmaceuticals. The theme for the day is joint projects and scientific work in the Aarhus Novo Nordisk Science and Talent Network, where the latest research will also be presented.
Our genomes are promiscuously transcribed into RNA. How cells manage to sort this massive genomic output into functional and non-functional material has remained enigmatic. New research describes protein interactions involved in such RNA fate determination.
How can small companies each individually use the world’s most powerful neutron and X-ray microscopes for product development? Researchers at Aarhus University (AU), the University of Copenhagen (KU) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will now help them to find the answer – free of charge.
Scientists from Aarhus University have studied how efficient crops are at using the sun to produce biomass for biorefining. This knowledge can be put to use to optimise biomass yields and improve sustainability.
Thanks to donations from the VILLUM FOUNDATION, scientists now have a unique opportunity to strengthen climate research in the northernmost part of Greenland. The first of three drones will be officially handed over to Aarhus University on Monday 13 March at 13.00 with an air show at Hans Christian Andersen Airport near Odense.
