Interdisciplinary research cooperation

Examples of current and recent cooperation:

Molecular Prediction of Prostate Cancer Risk and Aggressiveness

“Molecular Prediction of Prostate Cancer Risk and Aggressiveness” (MolPros) is an inter-disciplinary translational cancer research alliance bringing together experts from Denmark, Germany, China and USA. The research alliance has been established to develop new molecular tools to: identify men with high risk of prostate cancer, and to distinguish aggressive from non-aggressive prostate cancer.

Dynamical Systems Interdisciplinary Network

The project involves 7 teams from 3 faculties at the University of Copenhagen. Through cross-disciplinary collaboration, our aim and vision are to develop mathematical models and statistical analysis tools and apply them to data from different branches of science. The project network encompasses visual cognition, neuronal signalling and networks, renal and cardiovascular physiology, metabolomics, molecular dynamics and econometrics.
