Associate Professor Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard nearly died from a bacterial infection. It led her to a project on making a visual encyclopaedia of Streptococcus pneumoniae, the bacteria that almost killed her, to advance our understanding of how pneumococcal infections work so we can create better and faster treatment.

Anders Sybrandt Hansen | According to the most recent UNESCO estimates there were 801,000 Chinese nationals studying at higher education institutions outside the People’s Republic of China in 2016 . Since the turn of the century this number has seen a fivefold increase. This research project treats questions such as: What can this greatly increased interchange tell us about the generation of Chinese currently coming of age? And how will the students’ foreign experience influence Chinese-foreign relations in the future?

Johan Albrecht Schmidt | This project was aimed at investigating the role of sea salt aerosol and the ocean surface as a source of tropospheric halogens, and at unraveling the impact of halogens on tropospheric ozone and NOx. The project research activities included both further implementation of halogen chemistry in a state-of-the-art global chemical transport model and laboratory chemical kinetics studies targeting the activation of aqueous phase halogens by gas phase oxidants.

Estelle Bourdon | This project has focused on 3D-preserved specimens from the Early Eocene Fur Formation (Mo-Clay) of Denmark, which are among the most exquisite Early Cenozoic fossil birds. Researchers report the oldest roller (Coracii), Septencoracias, based on a new fossil from the Fur Formation (about 54 million years ago).

Elizabeth Neilson | As sessile organisms, plants must possess mechanisms to tolerate a wide range of abiotic and biotic stresses throughout their lifetime. In order to cope under the constant pressure of herbivory and pathogen attach as well as challenging environmental conditions and even catastrophic events, plants must be plastic to survive.
