Medical biotechnology is an application of biotechnology that improves the lives of individuals every day. In the medical biotechnology research group, we use state-of-the-art technologies to obtain knowledge applicable in the development of better diagnostics and therapeutics. In addition, we seek knowledge of fundamental biological systems, allowing a better differentiation between disease and normal human development and health.
- Ageing and age related diseases
- Cancer and circulating tumor cells
- Cardiovascular and heart diseases
- Probiotics and microbiota
- Antibody technology
- Proteases and disease
- Pathological calcium signaling
- Bioactive peptides and secondary metabolites
- Novel lead compounds for drug development
Our research is driven by the ambition of applying science to understand, prevent and treat human diseases.
Within the area of medical biotechnology we collaborate broadly with local and national institutions and experts. These include, but are not limited to, researchers from Faculty of Medicine, AAU and Aalborg University Hospital, Copenhagen University, Herlev Hospital, Danish Technical University, and Aarhus University. Internationally we collaborate with researchers all over the world including Japan, China, Australia, Europe and US.
