According to Novo Nordisk, the fellowship program was extended in 2015 and will include up to 32 fellows.

The new research center at Oxford will employ up to 100 Novo Nordisk researchers. The company will invest 1 billion Danish kroner over a period of ten years in the project. The center will focus on early-stage research for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes and complications related to the disease. James D.
