The research is to be conducted at DTU Biosustain, which was established in 2011. 11 May N etwork models crucial to combating illness DTU hosts an international symposium under the banner of Network Medicine. At the event, leading international researchers in the fields of system and network biology present new findings about how network models are becoming crucial to the study of complex illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and neurological complaints. 13–17 May G reen Alliance As the only Danish university, DTU is participating in the Danish commercial delegation to South Korea. The Crown Prince and Princess are heading the delegation and are accompanied by Pia Olsen Dyhr, Danish Minister for Trade and Investment, Morten Østergaard, Danish Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education, and Ole Sohn, Danish Minister for Business and Growth.
