Professor Anja Groth has been elected member of The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters.
The Academy works to strengthen the position of science in Denmark and to promote interdisciplinary understanding. It acts as a cooperative body and meeting place for prominent researchers from all areas of basic scientific research from across the country. The Academy cooperates with similar academies worldwide, with international organizations and with the Danish authorities.
Anja Groth has been a group leader at the Biotech Research & innovation Centre since 2008.
The focus of her research is how epigenetic information is inherited during cell division, which provides important knowledge about how cells remember their identity as they divide. This knowledge is fundamental to understand development and how epigenetic changes can arise in cancer.
