About the Centre for GeoGenetics

As a Centre of Excellence we are financed by a five-year grant from the Danish National Research Foundation. Director of the centre is professor Eske Willerslev.

Our approach is multidisciplinary. Apart from molecular biologists and geneticists the centre’s scientific staff include experts in the fields of bioinformatics, archaeology, palaeontology, glaciology and geology. We are approximately 60 or so professors, associate professors, post. docs, PhD-students, undergraduate students and support personal.

The centre is located in a newly renovated building at the Geological Museum, Natural History Museum of Denmark. The centre opened officially on the 7. September 2010.
