- Adipose tissue metabolism
My primary interest is translational studies on the importance of white and brown adipose tissue metabolism for whole body metabolism.
Clinical studies; with focus on weight loss and exercise, whole body metabolism, low grade inflammation combined with characterization of metabolism and changes in mRNA expression in fat and muscle biopsies.
Brown adipose tissue (BAT); development of new MRI-based methods to assess BAT activity in humans coupled with studies on how to activate human BAT.
- Cultured white and brown adipocytes; to investigate direct effects of various compounds/hormones on cell metabolism and gene expression.
