Molecular Endocrinology and Metabolism (MEM)

The MEM performs research on signal transduction pathways and their impact on the metabolic phenotypes of common and complex human diseases with focus on metabolic diseases including diabetes. MEM analyses the genetic impact on the metabolome, identifies biomarkers of early stages and progression of disease, studies molecule metabolism and underlying enzymes, and elucidates the mechanisms of diseases caused by lipid metabolism dysfunction. Furthermore, MEM harbours the Metabolomic Platform which develops and applies metabolomics tools and thereby supports research in the indicated fields.
