New EU-financed project from CML

A new EU-financed project “Network for Medieval Arts and Rituals (NetMAR)” wants to improve the understanding of medieval rituals and enhance the field of medieval studies by creating new and exciting ways to approach and study certain medieval concepts. The new EU-financed project is an international collaboration between the DNRF’s Center for Medieval Literature (CML) at the University of Southern Denmark, the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Bamberg and the Centre for Medieval Arts & Rituals at the University of Cyprus.

New study from ATLAS explores the link between obesity and cell changes in mice

A new study from the DNRF’s Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (ATLAS) at the University of Southern Denmark found a link between obesity and cell changes in mice. The researchers have collaborated with head of center Susanne Mandrup’s research group, the Madsen Group, and discovered that obesity in male mice leads to cell changes. The study has been published in the scientific journal Cell Metabolism.

New project “HappyFish” from CEH

Ph.D. student Jacob Agerbo Rasmussen from the Center of Excellence Center for Evolutionary Hologenomics (CEH) at the University of Copenhagen is a part of the new project HappyFish. The project uses a hologenetic approach to move toward a more sustainable production of fish. The project discovered that gut bacteria are connected to fish health and growth, and a proper feed selection will help boost strong gut health.

Two pieces of research news from iCourts:

New online seminar from iCourts

A new online seminar “International Law Breakfast Briefings – Spring 2021” from the Center of Excellence iCourts at the University of Copenhagen provides an opportunity for researchers, practitioners and students with an interest in international law to meet on a regular basis and exchange views, experience and research.

New study from iCourts

The other research news is a study from iCourts that has been published in the scientific journal Social Science Research Network. The paper provides an overview of Danish immigration law and highlights the difference between Danish and international law. The paper then provides an analysis of the approach Denmark has taken to immigration law.

Assistant Professor Julian Valero Moreno from CellPAT receives the Lundbeck Experiment grant

Assistant Professor Julian Valero Moreno from the Center of Excellence CellPAT at Aarhus University has received a two-year Lundbeck LF Experiments grant. Assistant Professor Moreno will use the grant to develop new molecules for the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s. The grant is a part of the Lundbeck Foundation’s research program, LF Experiment, whereby DKK 57 million is awarded to bold projects in neuroscience.

New study from CEBI about inequality and health on a global level

A new study from the DNRF’s Center for Economic Behavior and Inequality (CEBI) at the University of Copenhagen by Associate Professor Mette Gørtz and co-authors shows that US health lags behind that of other countries like Australia, Canada, Denmark and France. The study was based on data from the US and 12 other developed countries. The study was published in the scientific journal JAMA.
