Ditlev Brodersen awarded prestigious visiting professorship at Università di Parma
Associate Professor Ditlev Egeskov Brodersen at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics has been awarded a prestigious visiting professorship in structural biology and didactics at the PhD level at Università di Parma, Italy.
As part of the visiting professorship, Ditlev Brodersen will formally become a member of the board of the graduate school at the Italian university during the period 2017-2020 where he will carry out research and teach, including organise a PhD course in modern techniques in structural biology and work with modern teaching methods for active learning through the edu-IT portal, curriculearn.dk that Ditlev Brodersen has developed.
The research element of the professorship will allow Ditlev Brodersen to expand his structural studies of large enzyme complexes using x-ray crystallography and electron microscopy with new collaborations and projects. Ditlev Brodersen will furthermore act as co-supervisor for several PhD students at the University of Parma as well as facilitate that the students carry out a stay with a duration of 6 to 24 months in his research group at Aarhus University.
