The Danish scientist professor August Krogh was awarded the Noble Prize in Physio­logy/Medicine in 1920 and is recognized worldwide for his comparative studies of physiology in animals and humans. His scientific work and ingenious methods has defined him as one of the most significant physiologists of the 20 th century and one of the greatest Danish scientists of all time.

In recognition of the significant scientific influence by August Krogh, we have the great pleasure of opening the August Krogh Centre, as a platform to increase visibi­li­ty and strengthen impact of Danish research contributions in the field of Metabolism and Molecular Physiology. This initiative is in collaboration between leading scientists from the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences, Department of Biology and The Natural History Museum of Denmark.

As professor August Krogh, we believe that interdisciplinary research and a dedication toward sharing research findings are critical to ultimately advance science. To facilitate this, the August Krogh Centre is a forum for activities such as research core facilities, symposia, seminars and PhD courses. All of this and much more will be revealed in detail at the official centre opening.
