Ingrid Dahlman group

Adjunct Professor of Diabetes Research at the Department of Medicine, Huddinge. Senior Consultant in Endocrinology and Diabetology at Ersta Hospital, Stockholm.

Ingrid Dahlman is studying the role of the human abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue depot in the development of insulin resistance. The amount and function of white adipose tissue is linked to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

Ingrid Dahlman applies global transcriptome and DNA methylome profiling, as well as genetic association analyses, to define gene regulatory pathways in adipocytes that contribute to adipose tissue dysfunction and insulin resistance.

Ingrid Dahlman has recently reported a number of genes implicated in the regulation of body fat size and distribution, and adipose morphology, for example PLXND1 and LAMB3.
