Industrial collaboration

For many years, several researchers at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics have been collaborating with the industrial community on various research projects - partly by establishing a specific research collaboration and partly by recruiting an industrial PhD student. Some of these projects can be seen below. Here you can also get good advice if you as a company wish to collaborate with one or more of the department's research groups.

Industrial PhD

An Industrial PhD is a three-year business-oriented research project and a PhD education, conducted in collaboration between a company, an Industrial PhD candidate and a university.  If you employ your student as an industrial PhD, an application for support for the project will be submitted to Innovation Fund Denmark, and the student will have salaried employment at your company throughout the entire industrial PhD project.

Researchers define together with industry the intracellular recycling pathway of human serum albumin

Collaborative work between the NanoPharmaceutical Lab at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics and the Novozymes owned company Albumedix have uncovered a neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn)-dependent endosomal cellular sorting pathway. This has great importance in describing fundamental mechanisms…

Unique wheat passes the test

A unique, patented wheat can have significant importance to agriculture, the environment and undernourished people in developing countries. Animal tests recently demonstrated that this special wheat increases P and Ca digestibility.
