Our research focuses on providing insights into the biological function in humans of the genes behind the strong genetic component of obesity and diabetes combined with the treatment potential.

Clinically targeting these dysfunctionalities will with time improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of type-2 diabetes and obesity.


Furthermore, we aim to establish novel and interdisciplinary strategies to improve and maintain weight and immuno-metabolic health.
