NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The University of Copenhagen in Denmark plans to use a KRO 600 million ($109.1 million) grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation to build a center dedicated to protein research, the University said this week.
Working with what it said is the largest donation for Danish basic research, the University next year plans to open the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research.
The school said the center will “house leading Danish and international protein researchers” and an advanced laboratory for the study of proteins and disease.
The grant will allow the university to “boost research into what proteins look like and how they behave and interact in cells and tissues in healthy and sick people,” said Ulla Wewer, dean of the school’s faculty of health Sciences.
