A/Prof Kim Jensen
Kim Jensen is an Associate Professor at the Faculty for Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Kim Jensen has done his PhD at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, where he trained in protein engineering. He then became a postdoctoral researcher in Fiona Watt’s group at the CRUK-London Research Institute. In 2010 he joined the faculty at the Stem Cell Institute at University of Cambridge, UK, and moved to Copenhagen in 2013, where he has worked since. Dr. Jensen is an EMBO young investigator, an ERC consolidator grant holder, and is the recipient of the 2014 European Society for Dermatological Research gold medal. Dr. Jensen is interested in the molecular mechanisms that govern cell fate specification, tissue maturation and cellular plasticity in developing and adult epithelia with emphasis on adult stem cells. By combining studies using mouse models and clinical specimens the long-term aim of the research in the Jensen lab is to translate result from in vitro and in vivo models into regenerative therapies.
