About MOMA

The Department of Molecular Medicine (MOMA) is part of Aarhus University Hospital, and is associated with the Institute for Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University.

MOMA was established in 2008 at the Science Center Skejby, nearby the hospital.

From March,1st 2018 MOMA is part of and managed by the Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Aarhus University Hospital.

The department has two main activities:

Molecular diagnostic service for national and international hospitals

Molecular clinical research, mainly in cancer

The department is accredited by DANAK/ILAC by the international laboratory standard DS/EN ISO 15189:2013 for medical examination - genetics. 

Our staff is counting more than 70 members including six professors, consultants, doctors, researchers, bioinformaticians, medical technologists and students.
MOMA collaborates with leading laboratories worldwide especially in clinical translational studies. 

MOMA has over time expanded its technological facilities currently housing a wide range of state of the art equipment. Research fundings are received from the European Union, The Danish Cancer Society, The John and Birthe Meyer Foundation, The Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation, The Lundbeck Foundation, The Karen Elise Jensen Foundation, The Danish Research Council and others.
