What is the best way to treat diseases of the central nervous system?

How can drugs used for treating e.g. dementia bypass the blood-brain barrier? This is one of the questions that Morten Schallburg Nielsen, new professor of neuroscience at Aarhus University's Department of Biomedicine, is particularly focused on answering.

Two honours programmes become one – with two tracks and shared activities

Health brings the faculty's two honours programmes together in a single programme and creates an interdisciplinary programme under the title 'Research & Innovation'. The goal is a closer correlation between research, education and innovation via shared activities and more, while the target group remains particularly talented and highly motivated…
