New efficient way to engineer nanostructures mimicking natural immune response complexes

Collaboration between Novo Nordisk and Professor Kurt Gothelf’s laboratory at Aarhus University yields novel method to engineer large multi-antibody-like nanostructures using DNA nanotechnology. The results demonstrate the potential for assembly of multiple proteins and also other materials to enhance properties of traditional therapies.

On 3 May, the Department of Engineering opened its 2,100 m2 Deep Tech Experimental Hub research facility. The experimental hub is a critical element in developing research-based engineering science study programmes. These are a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU.

Record Independent Research Fund Denmark grants for ST

Independent Research Fund Denmark has granted a total of DKK 133.4 mill. to 39 research projects at ST, almost half of which are within technology and production.

"Designing electronic systems today is very often a matter of trial and error, and it costs a lot of money and takes a long time. If you can make the workflow simple and virtual with a model that simulates perfectly the finished product, you can save an awful lot of time and money," says Christian Møldrup Legaard, who, as an MSc in Engineering student will be attached to the new AU Centre for Digital Twins, which opens on 6 May.

New centre for digital twins: "The idea of being able to design and debug the entire system before you build it is absolutely fantastic"

24-year-old Christian Møldrup Legaard is studying for an MSc in Engineering in computer engineering. He will soon be a part of Aarhus University's new Centre for Digital Twins, and he believes that this new trend in digital systems can save a lot of money and grey hair.
