Biology has to a large extent become an information science. With the quantity of biological data being generated, for example by high-throughput sequencing techniques, data can only meaningfully be processed by computer.
Section of Preclinical Disease Biology
The section studies all aspects of the development of models for human and veterinary diseases in mammals. This includes animal welfare related concerns as well as laboratory related aspects. Basic scientific disciplines are pathology, pharmacology and immunology.
The section has a strong focus on in vivo pharmacology and the role of the immune system in metabolic-inflammatory diseases.
The section also hosts;
- LIFEPHARM Centre
- CALAR: Axel Kornerup Hansen
- CeLAT: Dorte Bratbo Sørensen
- Center for non-coding RNA in Technology and Health: Jan Gorodkin
Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology (ExPT)
The ExPT Lab works with increased oxidative stress which has been associated with several chronic diseases including atherosclerosis, liver steatosis, diabetes and cancer.
Our research group focuses on novel regulatory mechanisms that control the immune system and on development of future immune diagnostic tools based on nanotechnology.
Laboratory Animal Science and welfare (LAS)
Through animal models we aim for a better understanding of inflammatory-metabolic human diseases and psychiatric diseases.
Microbial and Nutritional Immunology (MiNI)
MiNI aims at investigating how microbes and compounds in our environment, in particular food components, affect the immune system.
