The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research, located in central Copenhagen, has been established to promote basic research on human proteins of medical relevance; with the explicit goal to be among the leading laboratories within our focus areas. The Center operates from a significant donation from the Novo Nordisk
Foundation, www.novonordiskfonden.dk/en, as well as other external funding sources. In addition, the University of Copenhagen has made major contributions towards the building of the new Center laboratories, which were opened during 2009. The Center is an integral part of the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Copenhagen, www.ku.dk/english, and has a highly international and dynamic environment.
The Center comprises a wide range of expertise and resources in protein production, chemical biology, disease systems biology and mass spectrometry based proteomics as well as having dedicated research groups focused on ubiquitin modified signaling and molecular endocrinology. We are prioritizing basic research but are also open to translational research opportunities within medicine with the aim of generating research results useful to facilitate drug discovery and development.
The Center management team consists of Dr. Michael Sundström (Managing Director), Professor Matthias Mann (Research Director, Proteomics) and Professor Søren Brunak (Research Director, Disease Systems Biolog).
