With Health leading the way, researchers from all over Denmark will have better access to analytical apparatus and expertise, and in this way faster and better access to analysis of tissues and cells. CellX is a collaboration between the University of Copenhagen, the University of Southern Denmark, the Steno Diabetes Center Aarhus and Aarhus University. The grant is earmarked for advanced equipment, databases and laboratory- and test facilities, which together will strengthen research in Denmark.

The Ministry of Higher Education and Science has made grants totalling DKK 134 million to new research infrastructure. Professor Søren Riis Paludan from the Department of Biomedicine is the main applicant from Health, together with Professor Robert Fenton, Professor Jakob Skou Pedersen, and Associate Professor Yonglun Luo, and in close collaboration with Professor Jørgen Kjems from the Faculty of Natural Sciences.
