Type 2 diabetes and metabolism

Our main focus area of research are causes, development and complications of type 2 diabetes.

About the group

We do clinical and mechanistic studies in obesity, prediabetes and diabetes and participate in large epidemiological register-based studies.

We design and conduct our own studies, perform translational research with collaborating laboratories and participate in multi-centre studies initiated from academic collaborators or sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry.

Our aim is to improve prevention and treatment for type 2 diabetes.
