During his university training, Michael gained expertise within the fields of organic chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, molecular diagnostics, and nanoscience.
Michael graduated from Aarhus University in 2014 with a M.Sc. in medicinal chemistry and in 2016 with a PhD degree in nanoscience. His research involved a sensor assay for fast small molecule detection in blood samples utilized in point-of-care diagnostics. Michael’s research has led to patenting of the sensor assay technology as well as establishment and co-founding of two companies and funding of the project through a major grant in 2014 from the Innovation foundation.
