Over thousands of years, barley and wheat have been bred to such an extent that the yield has been greatly improved, but the crops have also lost a number of properties that are important to survive in the wild. A new Danish research project will restore the original properties of crops to make them more robust.

Molecular motors produce the force that powers the beat of sperm cell tails to generate movement toward the egg cell for fertilization. New research now shows how the molecular motors that power the movement of sperm cells are recognized and specifically transported into the tail region of the cell. This knowledge can pave the way for a better…

The Israeli Biopharmaceutical company RedHill Biopharma Ltd. (NASDAQ: RDHL) (Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange: RDHL) has extended its collaboration with researchers at Aarhus University in order to develop a potentially promising drug candidate for cancer treatment. The drug candidate is based on a protease inhibitor molecule - an area the Danish…

Poul Nissen, Professor at Aarhus University, is receiving the 2017 Novo Nordisk Prize for his pioneering studies of the structure and function of ion pumps. Through his research, Poul Nissen has clarified in detail, among other things, how ions and nutrients are transported into and out of cells. This fundamental knowledge is very significant for…
