New antibodies for cancer treatment

Out of a library with billions of artificial antibodies, researchers have identified ten that can possibly prevent cancer tumours from growing.

AU Energy gains strength

Aarhus University is increasing its activities in the AU Energy network. The aim is to strengthen interdisciplinary research collaboration regarding energy.

With a grant of DKK 20 million, researchers at Aarhus University will experiment with feeding bacteria with electricity from wind turbines, thereby speeding up the microbiological processes that control the conversion of CO<sub>2</em> to methane.

Scientists will feed bacteria with electricity

Researchers will look at ways to feed bacteria in biogas plants using electrons from surplus electricity from wind turbines. The project is supported by a grant of DKK 20 million from the Innovation Foundation – Denmark.

The Software Group at the Department of Engineering is spearheading a major research project that has a grant of DKK 60 million. The aim is to make it easier and cheaper to produce prototypes of products with many sensors and computer systems. (Photo: Lise Balsby)

New European research will improve interaction between virtual and physical worlds

With a new EUR 8 million research project, Aarhus University will spearhead a project that aims to develop a new form of interaction between physical objects and their computer control using different software models. The technology will make it easier to develop credible cyber-physical systems (CPS), which will be very important for industry’s…

The world’s growing need for microcomputers that are even smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient can possibly be met within a few years. Researchers are in full swing designing circuits with very large memory capacity and very low power consumption. The photo shows Assistant Professor Farshad Moradi. (Photo: Anders Trærup)
The traditional transistors in microprocessors are planar structures. The next generation of transistors has an advanced geometric pattern in three dimensions or more, and this provides considerably better control of the channel, less leakage current, low-voltage memory, and lower power consumption. As the illustration shows the scientists are designing new types of transistors where the gate is controlled from all sides.

New collaboration may lead to next generation computer chips

In a new international collaboration, engineers at Aarhus University will play a key role in designing integrated circuits using new transistors. These can be used in nanocomputers with super memory capacity and ultra-low power consumption.

It appears that researchers have discovered how to measure the sensation of taste in the brain at a preconscious level. This could be the key to identifying the perfect taste of sweetness without calories. Camilla Rotvel is pictured here in the laboratory. She is using 128 electrodes mounted on the scalp to record the electrical activity patterns between the neurons when we taste and recognise something sweet. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

EEG puts scientist right on track for the perfect taste of sweetness

In recent decades, the artificial sweetener industry has experienced a massive boom in global demand. However, it is difficult to produce a synthetic substance that only contains a few calories at the same time as authentic sweetness. Danish researchers are now using alternative methods to create the perfect sugar substitute.

Inauguration of Navitas

Today, Friday 5 September, the new Navitas Building at the Port of Aarhus will be officially opened by Aarhus University, INCUBA, the Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering and the Aarhus City Council.

There is no such thing of one single marker of aging. Grey hair and wrinkles are often considered typical signs of aging, but they are not good markers. Some have grey hair as early as in their 20s, and if you are a fisherman on the west coast you have typically more wrinkles than others because of the sun and wind. Therefore the researchers in the ‘Mark-age” project study the age markers in the blood.

Blood reveals your biological age

What is your body’s biological age? There are various answers to this question depending on which body age test you take. However, researchers have now shown that you can measure the body’s exact biological age in a blood sample. These findings will have a significant impact - both on the individual’s health and on society’s economy.

Sweet, bitter, dark, light? A perfect beer depends, of course, on preferences, but it always tastes of the particular corn, type of roasting and bitter substance and nothing else. In what is probably Denmark’s most advanced, high-technology microbrewery, scientists and students have developed what seems to be the formula for beer without any aftertaste.

After six months of intense work, researchers and engineering students from Aarhus University are very close to revealing the formula for the perfect beer with out any aftertaste whatsoever. (PHOTO: Rasmus Rørbæk)

Searching the formula for the perfect beer

What actually matters to the pure taste of beer? Using technological hardware worth several hundred thousands, scientists and students set out on a hunt to find the formula for the absolutely perfect brew without any aftertaste.
