In 2019, Forskningsfondens Ejendomsselskab AS (FEAS) (the Research Fund's Property Company AS) will take over the hospital buildings ("Kommunehospitalet") at Nørrebrogade, and preparations for the AU's relocation will begin. It is planned that the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (MBG) will take over 23,000 m2 in buildings 1870-74 located at the northern end of the hospital area. The renovation of the buildings will start in 2019, and our department is expected to move to the renovated buildings in 2021.

MBG has set up a building committee that will come up with detailed proposals for the design of buildings and rooms for ST-BYG, engineers and architects.

On this webpage you can follow steps for the renovation, incl. thoughts, deadlines, input from employees and students and final decisions in connection with the renovation.


Every time something new is posted on the website, information about this will appear in MBG's weekly newsletter with a link to the website.
