Center for Intelligent Drug Delivery and Sensing Using Microcontainers and Nanomechanics

Organization profile

Organisation profile

IDUN is a center of excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation and the Villum Foundation. The center is devided into two parts: IDUN Drug and IDUN Sensor, focussing on the main research areas of drug delivery and nanomechanical sensors.

With the two main research areas in close contact at the center, IDUN will be exploring the great synergy between sensor development and search for new pharmaceutical tools and materials. IDUN Sensor will, through IDUN Drug, get access to unique polymers and biomolecules. Through IDUN Sensor, IDUN Drug will be able to characterize, among others, small volumes of materials and molecules, which are today not possible to analyze by any standard technologies. By maintaining and strengthening the coupling between sensor and material development, IDUN create a unique international environment with high creativity across scientific borders.

Center Leader: Professor Anja Boisen

Scientific Coordinator: Anna Julie Rasmussen
