DNA molecules will be used to mimic human sense of taste

Human sense of taste is complex and difficult to imitate. An interdisciplinary project with Jørgen Kjems as project leader is now aiming at developing extremely fast "artificial tasting machines" that use DNA molecules as billions of small "sensors" to imitate human sense of taste with unprecedented accuracy.

New insight into the mechanism of the drug against sclerosis and psoriasis

Professor Poul Nissen and his research team with contributions from e.g. Kurt Gothelf's laboratories have provided fundamental new insight into the mechanism of the medical drug dimethyl fumarate, which is the active component of important treatments for multiple sclerosis and psoriasis. The results contribute to the development of new strategies…
