Ingrid Dahlman group
The group is focused on pathways in human white adipose tissue linking adiposity to insulin resistance.
We perform global interrogation of gene and miRNA expression in abdominal subcutaneous white adipose tissue of large patient cohorts in relation to insulin resistance.
Potential new key regulators of adipocyte insulin sensitivity, identified by transcriptome profiling, are evaluated functionally in human fat cells in vitro together with other members of the laboratory. We are further interested in the epigenetic regulation of human adipose tissue function.
Keywords: Genetic studies of adipose tissue, obesity and insulin resistance.
