Poul Nissen nominated to the Royal Danish Society of Sciences and Letters.
Professor Poul Nissen, Department of Molecular Biology, University of Aarhus, has been nominated to the Royal Danish Society of Sciences and Letters.
Only scientists who have achieved important results within basic research can become members of the Society.
The members of the Society suggest and nominate new members once a year, and it is thus not possible to apply yourself to become as a member.
The Royal Danish Society of Sciences and Letters, which was founded in 1742, has the Danish Queen of Denmark, Margrethe II, as patron of the Society. Its aim is to strengthen the position of science in Denmark and to promote interdisciplinary understanding. It serves as a cooperation and meeting place for prominent researchers from all areas of basic research from across the country.
The Society is working with similar academies around the world, with international organizations and with the Danish authorities. It publishes scientific publications and seeks, for example through commonly understood public lectures, to spread the understanding of scientific research and its importance.
