Researchers at Aarhus University describe it as a breakthrough that they can now use artificial copies of allergens and thereby study the mechanisms of action behind anaphylaxis in individual patients. They have just used the method in the first major study with sera from a total of 115 insect allergy sufferers, and they found significant deficiencies in the current treatment.

Insect allergy today is treated with vaccines based on a purified form of natural venom. In the future, the vaccines may very well consist of artificial allergens that are carefully combined so that they match the individual patient’s specific allergy profile. (Photo: Colourbox)

People allergic to insect venom need precision medical diagnosis and treatment

A team of researchers has elucidated individual profiles of allergy reactivity in patients that are not protected after treatment with immunotherapy. The aim is to improve medical treatment of people who are allergic to insect stings.

A group of engineering students have carried out a total of four successful and well-monitored rocket engine launches. They now have so much data that they expect to be able to optimise the engine so that they can launch the next rocket into orbit around the Earth. (Photo: Colourbox)
It started out mostly for fun a few years ago among a group of engineering students at Aarhus University. Since then, their tinkering in the laboratories has gained momentum, and researchers now estimate that the students’ latest version of a rocket engine could provide state-of-the-art results in rocket technology within a few years.

Students will launch a rocket into space

After several years of work, a group of engineering students have now managed to carry out a total of four successful launches of a rocket engine on a test stand from a space laboratory.

By precisely recording the blood pressure of pregnant women as early as the 12th week, it is possible to indicate the risk of preeclampsia at a later stage of the pregnancy. Researchers have developed a telemedical solution that makes it possible to implement targeted screening programmes without leading to increased use of staff resources. (Photo: Colourbox)

Smart sphygmomanometer provides early warning of preeclampsia

Researchers at Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital have developed an intelligent measuring station that very precisely records the blood pressure of pregnant women as early as the 12th week of pregnancy. This can help determine the risk of preeclampsia at a later stage of the pregnancy.

International award for membrane research

PhD student Mette Birch Kristensen has received an international award for her presentation of AU Engineering’s research into energy conversion and membrane synthesis.

Researchers can now measure odour by identifying chemical compounds in the air. And they can very precisely predict how human noses react to these compounds. Pictured here are Associate Professor Anders Feilberg and Postdoctoral Fellow Quynh Nguyen. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

Researchers can now measure odour

It usually requires a nose to be able to smell, but researchers have now succeeded for the first time in developing a convincing method to measure odour from pig houses by precisely registering odour concentrations in the air.

Use 10 per cent more energy and save 10 per cent on your electricity bill. It can actually pay to use loads of energy when there is plenty available. Researchers can document this in a comprehensive study of how private consumers can achieve the greatest savings on their heating bill in a modern supply system with flexible electricity prices.

It pays to increase energy consumption

A new study shows that it is possible to save money and reduce carbon dioxide emission by using more energy.

New technology seems to be able to significantly improve the removal of microplastics from wastewater. At the same time, it can filter large amounts of organic material that can subsequently be used for biogas production. (Photo: Colourbox)

New technology can filter microplastics in wastewater

In the coming years, Aarhus University is taking part in a new project that will contribute to better removal of microplastics from wastewater.

Two engineering students have built a mini version of Google’s enormous data centre. This now provides the university’s students and researchers with unique opportunities to experiment with system design for cloud computing. Pictured here are Martin Jensen (left) and Kasper Nissen.

New cloud is a ‘playground’ for students

Aarhus University now has its own data centre where students and researchers can experiment with technologies for cloud computing. Two engineering students are responsible for both the design and the construction.
