Mission of the IEG

  • The aim of the Institute of Experimental Genetics (IEG) is to further the understanding of mechanisms that underlie the etiology of human diseases. Metabolic diseases with focus on diabetes are key areas of research. Experimental set-ups are centered on the mouse as pre-clinical model organism with direct translation of results to humans. Besides studying the effects of genotypes, the institute identifies and characterizes environmental and epigenetic factors and the mechanisms by which these act on the etiology of diseases.
