PhD defence: PoN – an SOS for sustainability

During his PhD studies, Jakob Raffn attempted to unpack and address a key challenge of our time; namely that, ‘while societies become increasingly aware of and knowledgeable about sustainability they do not become sustainable’. In their current configurations, our Societal Operating Systems (SOS), i.e. economies, sciences, politics, technologies,…

From plant helper to insect killer – the elusive lifestyle of insect pathogenic fungi

During his PhD studies, Rasmus Emil Jensen researched insect pathogenic fungi living inside plants as endophytes. Endophytism is a term originally used to describe seemingly symptomless microorganisms living inside plants but today we know that endophytes play an important role in plant defense and growth. Rasmus Emil Jensen studied how endophytic…

PhD-defence: Advanced mass spectrometry explains how plant roots and micro-organisms interact

During his PhD studies, Kourosh Hooshmand worked with advanced mass spectrometry-based techniques to uncover the molecular mechanism underlying complex plant-beneficial microbes-pathogen tripartite interactions that confer indirect plant defence. Kourosh Hooshmand identified various metabolic markers associated with plant host defence…

Extended lactation: Which cows are suitable?

Intentional delay of the cow’s first insemination after calving results in an extended lactation. However, not all cows manage an extended lactation equally well. A new research project at Aarhus University examines the possibility of selecting suitable and unsuitable cows in advance.

New large centre on agricultural production and biodiversity

AU researchers receive a total of DKK 60 million kroner for a new 6-year-old centre called SustainScapes. The centre will work with research-based solutions on how biodiversity can be future-proofed in a changing climate and in a world with an ever-increasing need for resources. The Novo Nordisk Foundation provides the grant as part of the "Novo…
