DANDRITE - Danish EMBL node

About DANDRITE

The Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience (DANDRITE) is the Danish node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine. DANDRITE was established by the Lundbeck Foundation and Aarhus University in 2013 and performs basic and translational research in brain and the nervous system.

DANDRITE is an interdisciplinary research centre affiliated with two faculties at Aarhus University, the Faculty of Health and the Faculty of Science and Technology. The centre has ties to Aarhus University Hospital.

The focus of DANDRITE research are on molecular mechanisms that explain physiological manifestations of cellular communication networks in brain circuitries, and how these are affected in neurological and psychiatric disorders. Furthermore, translational research aiming for new strategies in diagnostic and clinical practice, drug discover and spin-out activities will be encouraged.
