brain research.....

What is not apparant is my other passion is brain research.

I am professor in molecular pharmacology at the University of Copenhagen.

I recently plotted a map of all the countries I have visited so far:

world map

Quite amazing - I guess I will soon have to sponsor some third world CO2 reduction projects in order to become politically correct......Meanwhile I will also have to find new climbing projects in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, ...., in order to fill the white spots on the map ;-)


and family....


On August 20, 2008 I became father to Sofie Frederikke. A courageous little girl who went on her first climbing trip to Australia in 2009 aged 6 months!
