Specialemulighed inden for doping, muskelhypertrofi og præstationsevne
I dette projekt undersøger vi hvor vidt beta2-agonisten salmeterol inducerer samme grad af muskelhypertrofi som andre beta2-agonister i mennesker, og hvor vidt dette respons kan potentieres med dagligt proteinpulversupplementering
Understanding the effect of starch and fibers on plant protein in vitro digestibility
Plant proteins are less digestible than protein of animal origin. Here we want to understand the effect of the matrix on the protein digestibility, that is the presence of e.g. starch and fibers.
Synthetic biology to build yeast cell factory producing health-promoting glucosinolates
Building an efficient yeast cell factory with the newly developed OrthoRep system (Ravikumar et al. 2018) that allows rapid evolution of a gene of interest by using an error-prone DNA polymerase that specifically targets this gene
Utilizing Nature’s Vast Chemical Library for the Discovery of LPMO Inhibitors
LPMO enzymes play a role in pathogen attack of plants, insects and even humans. Join us to discover LPMO inhibitors, which can hold a great potential and may contribute to the development of tailored antimicrobial agents
Studying the role of LPMOs in the human pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans
Do you want to help in understanding the role of LPMO enzymes in a human pathogenic fungus? We know they are crucial for infecting mammals, but we know very little about the expression and mechanism of these enzymes.
Investigation of carbohydrate active enzymes and their adaptations for crystallinity
Cellulose-degrading enzymes play a major role in the transition to a bio-based economy. LPMO enzymes have the ability to act on crystalline regions of the cellulose, unlocking the full potential of biomass as an energy source.
Oxygen consumption during wood decomposition under varying moisture and temperature condit
In the OxyMiST project at IGN, we investigate the role of oxygen on break down of plant material. Join us for your BSc, MSc or course project and be a part of a large and active research team!
Student projects in Evolutionary Medicine
The microbes that live in us interact with each other and us - in the Microbial Evolutionary Medicine Group we study how this affects our health. Join us for an experimental or computational project!
Thesis: Gut microbiome brain axis communication in Anorexia
“Our vision is to radically improve treatment of Anorexia. Thereby, our mission is to challenge the current perspective of anorexia as solely psychological by identifying physiological factors influenced by the gut microbiome"
Master: Isolation and characterization of serotonin degrading bacteria in anorexia
A deficiency of 5-HT can modulate dopamine neurotransmission to elicit hyperactivity and psychosis in AN patients with a possible interaction with estrogen. Increasing evidence for a gut microbiota- brain axis connection in AN
Master’s Thesis projects within cerebrovascular physiology
Master’s thesis students are invited to join my laboratory from August 2022 to complete their education within Veterinary medicine, Medicine, Pharmacy, Molecular Biomedicine, Human Biology, or Biology.
MSc project in Viral Host Iinteractions
Phages (viruses of bacteria) are highly diverse, but largely understudied. They contain treasures of genes with unknown functions that have potential significant biotechnological value and are important in virus-host interactions.
Master thesis project concerning the blood-brain barrier in pigs
We invite thesis students to a project on basic molecular characterization of the blood-brain barrier in the cerebral vasculature of the pig brain. The thesis work should correspond to at least 30 ECTS and preferably 60 ECTS.
Which intracellular defense mechanisms protect E. coli against phage infection?
By characterizing a small but diverse E. coli phage collection, it is possible to investigate phage binding and infection and identify novel phage resistance mechanisms in E. coli using the ECOR collection.
Heterologous expression of plant membrane protein complexes in yeast
(or how to solve the “giant substrate problem”)
Optogenetics: creating light-switches for biological processes
In this project, we will try to generate a yeast-based optogenetics system to study the function of proteins called lipid flippases.
Breaking the dogma to boost the new generation of environmentally friendly fertilizers
Can plants use phospholipids as a source of essential nutrients that are growth limiting, such as phosphorus?
Optimization of rice for the climate change challenge
The objective of this project is to characterize the mechanisms underlying heat tolerance in plants.
Screening interventions targeting Campylobacter in a new chicken gut model system
Test and evaluate bacteriophages infecting Campylobacter as novel antimicrobials in a new chicken gut model system
Speciale- og bachelorstuderende søges til projekt om effekterne af ét års træning
Vi søger vi en række motiverede og ambitiøse speciale- og bachelorstuderende som har tid og lyst til at blive involveret i et forskningsprojekt der skal undersøge effekterne af ét års kontinuerlig træning i utrænede mennesker.
