Endocrinology and metabolism are linked to a variety of conditions and diseases ranging from diabetes, bone diseases, pituitary disorders and hypertension to heart rate, breathing and brain function. We are particularly involved in testing new drugs and devices for diabetes.
Our approach includes state-of-the-art laboratory techniques, translational research, studies of nutrition and exercise, clinical experimental studies, large cohort studies and clinical epidemiology. We study how hormones keep cells and organisms alive and investigate rare congenital syndromes such as Turner and Klinefelter.
We are more than 100 researchers and PhD students including both clinical and basic scientists with strong local, national and international collaborations.
