Welcome to the Nilsson lab.

We are located at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research at University of Copenhagen and study how cells accurately divide their chromosomes during mitosis. This is important to understand, as this process is often defective in cancers and correlates with poor patient prognosis. We combine advanced microscopy techniques, quantitative mass spectrometry and biochemical methods to understand the molecular mechanisms controlling chromosome segregation. We are always looking for talented post docs and PhD students so if you want to join us please contact Jakob Nilsson ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
