National collaborations

One of the major ambitions of this Section has been to establish contact with important laboratories in Denmark working with metabolism. This has been corroborated with the aid of PhD stipends as well as with project support. In this way collaborations with groups within the Department of Biomedical Sciences as well as with other departments at the University of Copenhagen have been established :
