Interdisciplinary centres

Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO)

Interdisciplinary is the cornerstone of nanoscience, which mixes chemistry, physics, molecular biology and biology to produce new insight. iNANO consists of researchers from a wide variety of fields who are investigating the properties of our world at the nanoscale.

Centre for integrative Sequencing (iSEQ)

By analysing enormous data sets from Danish registry systems and biobanks with advanced sequencing technology, iSEQ is advancing our knowledge of the complex molecular systems governing cancer and psychiatric disorders.

Centre for integrated Registerbased Research (CIRRAU)

CIRRAUS’s interdisciplinary research is based on data from research databases and biobanks and is applied within a framework that could be termed "translational population studies”.

Interacting Minds Centre (IMC)

The Interacting Minds Centre (IMC) is a cross-disciplinary research centre which researches into human interaction. The work done involves scholars from the humanities, the social sciences, the cognitive sciences, biology and clinical research.

Arctic Research Centre (ARC)

Lawyers, anthropologist, biologists, physicians and geologists – a large number of research disciplines join forces in Arctic Research Centre (ARC) to investigate climate changes in the Arctic ecosystems and the impacts on future Arctic society.

Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience (DANDRITE)

At DANDRITE (Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience), we investigate the communication mechanisms of the brain that underlie behaviour, the senses and consciousness. These have great importance in neurological and psychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, depression and schizophrenia. DANDRITE is the Danish node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership.

MINDLab is a neuroscience and cognition research network at Aarhus University founded in fruitful collaborations among leading research groups across Faculties and Institutes.
MINDLab is centered at the Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN).
Using cutting edge brain imaging technologies (MEG, EEG, TMS and fMRI) MINDLab seeks new understandings of the human mind and brain in normal and disease conditions. This knowledge is expected to further our understanding and treatment of major diseases such as depression, autism, dementia, stroke, schizophrenia and obesity.

Participatory Information Technology Centre (PIT)

Participatory IT research explores how people may shape their own way of living by bringing the practices of participatory processes into the design and use of IT. Through the encounter of humanistic and computer science traditions the PIT center develops a foundation for understanding alternative forms of thinking and supporting participation through IT.
