11 Dec Research Communication Prize 2018
About the project
The winner of the Research Communication Prize 2018 is Professor Oluf Borbye Pedersen from Copenhagen University. The prize was awarded by Søren Pind, Minister for Education and Research, at an event in Mogens Dahls Concert Hall on April 20, 2018.
The purpose of the Research Communication Prize is to honor researchers who have made special efforts to communicate their research to a broad public. The prize must raise awareness and recognition of the popular science dissemination of researchers.
Oluf Borbye Pedersen is a highly active and sought after lecturer and has held countless lectures at home and abroad, about the major perspectives in the exploration of the microbiology and how the new knowledge can benefit society and the individual who is interested in to keep healthy and healthy.
In his research, Oluf Borbye Pedersen has played a key role, especially in the mapping of the molecular genetic background for type 2 diabetes, and his research has been internationally recognized for decades. He has recently surveyed human about 10 million intestinal bacterial genes with Danish and international elite research groups using DNA-based meta-genome analyzes and advanced bioinformatic methods. A work that has opened up a whole new understanding of man as a superorganism that is under the influence of well 40 times more microbial genes than human own genes.
Oluf Borbye Pedersen burns to convey his knowledge not only to researchers but also to the general public. He is a highly active and sought-after lecturer and has held countless lectures at home and abroad, where he is able to tell dragging about the puzzles of the microbiology, both about the larger perspectives in the exploration of the microbiome and how the new knowledge may benefit the community and the individual who is interested in staying healthy.
