Professor of Computer Science Anders Møller from Aarhus University is among the recipients of the five Elite Researcher awards 2020, which will be awarded on Thursday, February 27, 2019 at a ceremony at the Copenhagen Opera House.
The measurements are consistent with predictions for “normal” matter and pave the way to future precision studies
An international research team has been able to describe the overall structure of the antibody type IgE, which is the key molecule in allergic diseases. This is a scientific breakthrough which provides important insights into basic mechanisms of allergic reactions and may pave the way for more effective allergy medicine. The new research results have now been published in the scientific journal Allergy.
The VILLUM FOUNDATION has introduced a new programme, earmarked for excellent female researchers within the technical and natural sciences. In the first round, a total of eight researchers received funding of up to DKK 2.5 mill. (EUR 0.3 mill.). Two of the recipients are researchers at the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Aarhus University.
The Faculties of Natural Sciences and Technical Sciences account for no fewer than 16 of the 23 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships reaped by Aarhus University in the 2019 round.
Results published by AU researchers reveal that surfactant-mediated unfolding and refolding of proteins are complex processes with several structures present, and rearrangements occur on time scales from sub-milliseconds to minutes.

There are magnets in virtually all modern electrical equipment. However, the current versions are often based on metals with heavy impacts on the environment. Associate Professor Mogens Christensen is researching a new and cleaner magnet technology; research which also opens up for new opportunities to exploit and store electricity.
