Danish Prince Joachim, His Royal Highness, participated on 25 February 2019 in the inauguration of the LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center at the University of Health at the University of Copenhagen.

LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center is located at Maersk Building at the University of Copenhagen. The center works closely with Danish and international research environments and hospitals.

The purpose of the LEO Foundation Research Center Skin Immunology is to study Danish and international leaders in the field of immunology and researchers in dermatology, which aims to create new knowledge in the long run, in this it can lead to better diagnosis and more effective treatment.

Monday, February 25, the ambitious skin research center “LEO Foundation Skin Immunology Research Center” announced the opening of the University of Copenhagen.

The University of Copenhagen wrote in a press release that the research center must be at home in the Maersk building and contribute to immunology and skin diseases for the next 10 years.

“Dean Ulla Wewer from the University of Copenhagen Health Sciences says:

“Dermatology causes many citizens to bring shame and weakness. By bringing together the leading force in immunology and skin diseases, they get the most advanced facilities in Maersk building from there we can expand the basic research into skin and skin diseases to new heights, LEO The Foundation’s skin immunology center has paved the way for better treatment of skin diseases that afflict a quarter of the world’s population. “

Launch of the project

Education and Research Minister Tommy Ahlers said:

“The center is a good example of how collaboration between universities and private funds can promote basic research. In the long run, we can carry out major breakthroughs through the average.”
