Nikolaj Gadegaard


Educational background

I graduated from University of Copenhagen in 1998 with a BSc in chemistry and a MSc in Physics. The master's project was carried out at Risø National Laboratory where I used neutron reflectivity to study the phase behaviour of blockcopolymer thin films . From 1999 to 2002 I undertook my PhD at Risø National Laboratory and submitted it to the University of Copenhagen for the degree in biophysics. The thesis work included injection moulding of topographical replica of fibrillar collagen in various polymers, assessing cell response to nanostructures and surface modification.
