Novo Nordisk Foundation
The Novo Nordisk Foundation is an independent Danish foundation with corporate interests. The Foundation has two objectives:
1) to provide a stable basis for the commercial and research activities of the companies in the Novo Group (Novo Nordisk A/S and Novozymes A/S)
2) to support scientific, humanitarian and social causes.
The history of the Foundation dates back to 1922, when Nobel Laureate August Krogh returned home to Denmark from Canada with permission to manufacture insulin in Scandinavia. This was the starting-point for developing world-class diabetes medicine and a Danish business and export venture. It also led to the establishment of several foundations that, many years later, merged into today’s Novo Nordisk Foundation.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation has supported Synapse with a three year grant.
