The Carlsberg Laboratory and in the foreground a statue of its founder J. C. Jacobsen.
The Carlsberg Laboratory in Copenhagen, Denmark, was created in 1875 by J. C. Jacobsen, the founder of the Carlsberg brewery, for the sake of advancing biochemical knowledge, especially relating to brewing. It featured a Department of Chemistry and a Department of Physiology. In 1972, the laboratory was renamed the Carlsberg Research Center and was transferred to the brewery.
Research from the Carlsberg Laboratory was published in its journal, Comptes rendus des travaux du laboratoire Carlsberg, which is often abbreviated to Compt. rend. trav. lab. Carlsberg or simply C. R. Trav. Lab. Carlsberg.
