The PhD Talent Development Program

Ten PhD students are currently associated at Gubra and are primarily funded by The Innovation Fund Denmark and Danish Diabetes Academy. The PhD projects cover the broad range of Gubra’s core disease areas within NASH, obesity, and diabetic complications such as heart and kidney diseases. The PhD projects are a result of successful collaborations between Gubra, Danish universities and Danish university hospitals.

PhD students at Gubra are enrolled into the Gubra PhD Talent Development Program. The overall aim of the program is to mature and educate the PhD students within the Gubra business (our CRO services and partnered research programmes). The benefits are the development of uniquely talented scientists capable of managing complex projects nurtured by excellent relations and communication skills.

Certified bike-friendly workplace

Our e-bike leasing scheme makes it easy to bike to work even over long distances. In 2020, we were certified bicycle-friendly workplace with highest distinction (GOLD) due to our favorable conditions for bikers, e.g. bike parking, bathing facilities and internal bike events. Co-Owner Jacob Jelsing even received a prize as winner of Bike Initiative of the Year (Årets cykelinitiativ). Thanks to Dansk Industri (DI) for producing this video.

Forest and nature project Løkkeby

On the island of Langeland in the South Funen archipelago, Gubra has bought a piece of
land with the purpose of planting new trees, plants, shrubs and bushes for the benefit of the climate and increased biodiversity. With this, Gubra initiates a new kind of local project that the whole company can be part of.

Organic food and great coffee

Working at Gubra you can enjoy a healthy lunch, fresh fruits and great coffee every day. Our organic canteen serves primarily locally produced food. Every Friday, we get together and round off the week with talks and a filling homemade breakfast. (This will be the first sign of things returning to normal once the covid-19 pandemic has been defeated).

More to work life than just work at Gubra

We are surrounded by nature. We bike to work, we walk and talk and practice yoga. The Gubra Sports Team – everyone is invited – is an inspiration to all of us. 

Become part of a new narrative for sustainable change

We are everyday reminded that our current way of life is highly unsustainable. There is widespread agreement among politicians and within the business community about the need for radical change.

It is part of our vision and mission to act and play an active role in the fight for a healthier and more sustainable world.
