Multidisciplinary & Global Endeavour to Understand Health and Disease Aetiology

Life-long metabolic health

The burden of common metabolic disorders – e.g., obesity, diabetes and coronary heart disease – is enormous both for the individuals and the societies. We are globally in a great need of new approaches that focus on the early assessment of metabolic risk and the maintenance of health – in contradiction to the prevailing disease-oriented approach. The Computational Medicine Research Team strives to improve the understanding of the molecular physiology and disease aetiology underlying the common metabolic disorders. One of our new tools is comprehensive metabolic profiling, broadly termed metabolomics, which is becoming widespread in epidemiology and genetics due to recent developments in quantitative profiling technologies and appealing results from their applications for understanding health and diseases.
