Knowledge exchange

Knowledge exchange has high priority at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. Whenever possible, new results published by the researchers result in the development of new products and/or technologies.

Several of the new discoveries from researchers and students at MBG have therefore been patented over the years. These researchers and students have worked with existing companies or formed their own companies to develop these products, technologies or methodologies.

Over the years, the department has also had several PhD students who have formed a bridge between the company and the department in the form of an Industrial PhD.

The department also sees it as an important task to provide the general public with information about the researchers’ findings in the form of popular descriptions of the results in the daily press.

In addition, an important group for the department’s dissemination is upper secondary school students, and we therefore offer lectures, experiments in laboratories and help with final study projects for upper secondary school students in their last year.

In addition, the collaboration with other researchers in Denmark and abroad plays an extremely important role in connection with knowledge exchange.
