Nuclear bombs provided the answer: cartilage injuries do not heal themselves

A new Danish study shows that the body is unable to regenerate damaged cartilage following osteoarthritis or sports injuries to the joints. This can have great significance for the future treatment of joint injuries and osteoarthritis, which is one of the major common diseases.

What should the future be built of?

All over the world, more and more new materials are being developed that can literally be used to build the technology of the future. However, a good deal of luck is involved in finding suitable candidates for research and development. With a grant of DKK 33.5 million from the VILLUM FOUNDATION, a recently established research centre will change…

Male and female plants get together in the heat

Gender differences make a big difference – especially when certain plants start to adapt to a warmer climate. A North American species of valerian may survive by changing the distribution of male and female plants to improve conditions for reproduction. This is ten times faster than simply spreading into cooler areas, which is what most other…

Aarhus University has opened an office at Agro Food Park, providing new opportunities for collaboration between food companies and researchers. Read more (in Danish only) here.

The researchers met at the Concert Hall Aarhus, but many of them also wanted to visit iNANO to see Northern Europe’s most powerful magnet. The one-year-old NMR spectrometer is four metres high, weighs seven tons, and has a magnetic field that is 500,000 times that of the Earth. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Communication
