One of my friends asked if the blog is dead because of zero activity between 5 and 17 April. No, it’s not dead, it’s just been hibernating. Danish Academia usually closes down completey for about 10 days in the Easter holidays, and so did our research group. But we’ll be back! Next Wednesday we are having our first annual meeting with the Novo Nordisk Foundation steering committee to justify another year of funding. I’m sure we will convince them: we’ve had a good and productive year of research work, internal seminars, public meetings — and blogging activities.
