Unit of Metabolism

The research at our unit is focused on metabolism and its connections to dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular-, liver-, intestinal- and biliary diseases, obesity, osteoporosis, hormonal and nutritional disturbances. We are researchers, biomedical analysts, research nurses, physicians and administrative staff.

Research

Our research is focused on metabolism and its connections to dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular-, liver-, intestinal- and biliary diseases, obesity, osteoporosis, hormonal and nutritional disturbances.

We use a great number of techniques and have developed several model systems from human experimentation to cell and molecular biology. Special interest is paired to genetic, hormonal and dietary mechanisms, and to development of new principles of therapy in humans.

Our research areas are:

  • Andrology/ sexual medicine
  • Bone metabolism
  • Lipid metabolism
  • Obesity
