Translational Metabolic Genomics in the Grarup Group

The goal of the Grarup Group is to define the genetic determinants of diabetes-related phenotypes and to perform detailed physiological characterization of these variants in humans. The ambition is to translate this knowledge into clinically relevant interventions.

The overarching goal of the Grarup Group is to gain a deeper understanding of the genetic architecture of type 2 diabetes, to expand our insights into diabetes pathogenesis and pathophysiology and thereby contribute to the translation of basal findings towards advancements in clinical diabetes management and prevention.

Major focus areas are to define the genetic determinants of diabetes-related phenotypes with emphasis on insulin sensitivity and to determine the genetic determinants of taste preferences and perception.

Studies are performed in large-scale Danish cohorts such as the Inter99 study, international resources such as the UK Biobank and in surveys of the historically isolated Greenlandic population. Furthermore, we perform studies of newly recruited individuals, for instance by recall-by-genotype principles, to investigate the physiological impact on genetic variation related to metabolism.
