Protein methods and technology are at the core of a considerable number of post-genome research programmes within biological sciences, chemistry, physics and mathematics at 10 departments at DTU.

Protein.DTU is an open, formal network promoting collaboration across departments in order to benefit optimally from the evident synergies present within research, teaching, innovation and government counselling in the protein area. Protein.DTU aims at supporting a shared infrastructure comprising a proteomics technology platform and a biophysics analysis facility open for all DTU departments.

Protein.DTU hosts two annual workshops, one with invited international speakers addressing novel themes from the frontiers of protein science and the other gathering graduate students and postdocs to exchange and discuss results. Protein.DTU already stimulated new collaborations between protein researchers at DTU also involving national and international academic institutions and the industry.
