A 5 year project investigating the connection between genes and drug action has received DKK 25 million in government funding

A new Danish research project headed by Professor Ulrik Gether at the Institute of Pharmacology has received DKK 25 million (USD 4.25 million) from the governmental programme, Multidisciplinary Research Groups. The 5 year project 'From Functional Genomics to Rationalize Therapy' will investigate and describe the connection between human genes and the effect of drugs especially in areas such as depression and obesity.


The aim of the project is to find 'personal drugs' which can make treatment of diseases faster and more efficient. The research will be carried out in collaboration with researchers from biotech company Neurosearch and pharmaceutical company Lundbeck. Other participants include the Medical Department of Anatomy at Copenhagen University, the Institute for Medical Biochemistry and Genetics, the National Hospital and a number of Institutes at Copenhagen University and the University of Southern Denmark. The news is reported by Biotechdenmark online.
