Details on selected accomplished research programs
From 2005 to 2010, MDL/MOMA participated in the "Nordic Centre of Excellence Programme in Molecular Medicine", funded by the Joint Committee of the Nordic Medical Research Councils, the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Academy for Advanced Study.
MDL/MOMA was part of the Nordic Network of Excellence in Disease Genetics (NoNEDG) and one of the six participating research teams from Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The network was coordinated by Academy professor Leena Peltonen, Biomedicum at University of Helsinki, who sadly passed away in March 2010.
MicroRNA Research Consortium (2006-2008)
MDL/MOMA participated in ”The MicroRNA Research Consortium – Towards novel molecular targets for LNA-based cancer therapy” from January 2006 to April 2008.
The Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation under the Ministry of Science has granted 10 million Danish Kroner for the development of diagnostic techniques to measure microRNA. The consortium consists of The University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University Hospital (MDL), Bioneer, Exiqon, Visiopharm and Novo Nordisk including Steno Diabetes Center. Together with the investements of the participants the budget will be 32 million Danish Kroner over three years.
