    Organisation profile

    The Molecular & Medical Biology Research Group conducts research in basic and translational science of molecular biology and biomedical problems. Common to all activities is an interest in cellular signaling pathways affecting cell appearance, metabolism and behavior. The research group covers a broad spectrum of biological disciplines and works with bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cells as model systems. Key areas of interest are:

    • Biomedical research (biology of cancer, pathogens, autoimmunity and life style diseases)
    • Protein and peptide research (development and use of bioactive peptides and antifreeze proteins)
    • Cell biology research (molecular mechanisms in DNA replication, gene regulation and signaling).

    We do much of our research in collaboration with external partners from both public institutions and the private sector. The research group has a long-term collaboration with Region Zealand's hospitals, both scientifically and educationally in terms of the Medical Biology Study Program. We continuously work to develop collaborations with external partners in both basic and translational research even further.

    The Molecular & Medical Biology Research Group is located in a modern laboratory building fully equipped to do research in biology and chemistry. The building contains among other things two confocal microscopes, which researchers from outside the university can use. Read more about the possibilities at microscope-core.ruc.dk
