The research group of Diabetes and Metabolism is part of the department of Endocrinology at Rigshospitalet. The department’s team collaborates with a number of both national and international partners and are a central part of the National Centre for Fetal Programming.

The research group is multidisciplinary since it consists of scientists anchored in the field of integrative physiology, but with skills in a range of related areas. These include fetal programming, insulin signal transduction, muscle and fat metabolism and biochemistry, clinical diabetology, clinical trials, genetics, bioinformatics, and applied epigenetics. The department is equipped to perform integrative physiological studies as well as clinical patient examinations.
