Molecular Metabolism, Lund University
My scientific work has focused on the insulin-secreting beta-cells in the islets of Langerhans. They release the hormone insulin, which controls whole body metabolism. Insufficient secretion of insulin is a requirement for the development of Type 2 Diabetes, a disease with a currently soaring incidence. In recent years, my research activities have been devoted to metabolism in islets but I started out with examining islet hormones other than insulin.
