Denmark leads the way in stem cell research  

The Danish Centre for Stem Cell Research has now opened

National daily newspaper Politiken has reported that the Danish Centre for Stem Cell Research has now opened. An application has also been made for a further postgraduate research school which, if accepted, could be completed as early as January 2003. Stem cells are considered to have considerable potential in the development of cures for metabolic diseases such as diabetes, as well as CNS diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.


The Danish Centre for Stem Cell Research will receive grants in excess of € 3 million over the next 5 years. The centre is home to a number of research groups including the University of Copenhagen, Ns-Gene A/S and Hagedorn Research Institute.
