Aarhus University gains grant for nanomedicine research centre  

2009.11.26
The Lundbeck Foundation has granted DKK 30m to Aarhus University in Jutland for the establishment of a research centre in nanomedicine
The Lundbeck Foundation, a Danish commercial foundation established in 1954, has granted DKK 30m (USD 6m) to Aarhus University in Jutland for the establishment of a research centre in nanomedicine. The news is reported in a press release from Aarhus University.
 
The Lundbeck Foundation Nanomedicine Centre for Individualised Management of Tissue Damage and Regeneration (LUNA), which will be headed by Professor Allan Flyvbjerg of the Faculty of Health Sciences and Professor Jørgen Kjems of the Department of  Molecular Biology, aims to combine leading international research in biomedicine and nanotechnology to create new medical treatments.
 
Professor Flyvbjerg says: "It is clear that the potential of nanomedicine is gigantic and that new forms of treatment can be developed. There is a great need for research in this field, and Lundbeck's grant is thus visionary and timely. Nanomedicine is a cornerstone in Aarhus University's research strategy which will now receive essential funding."
 
The LUNA project will focus on development of nano-based technologies for creating new 'molecular' medicines, new forms of diagnostic imaging, tissue specific drug administration, and new technologies for tissue protection and regeneration.
