Research at BRIC

Disease-oriented basic research is the main focus of the research at BRIC. Our overall aim is to contribute to a basic understanding of how and why disease occurs, to discover new disease-related genes, and to identify new diagnostic markers, which are essential to provide more efficient treatment. Since 2011, BRIC has collaborated with the Finsen Laboratory, Rigshospitalet, to coordinate our cancer research projects. We currently have 23 research groups working on research projects relevant for cancer, neurological and metabolic diseases.
