Univ. of Copenhagen Opens Protein Research Center

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Copenhagen has opened a new research center that will focus on protein studies aimed at understanding and treating diseases.

Scientists at The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research, which is situated on three floors at the Panum Institute, will use proteomics, protein characterization, systems biology, disease biology, and bioinformatics to study human diseases, the university said late last week.

The center was funded by an €80 million ($111 million) grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation in 2007.

Ulla Wewer, the school's dean, said in a statement that because the university has "all the basic financing in place, our researchers are free to concentrate on their work and look forward to groundbreaking results."
