Prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes - Kåre I. Birkeland

Current research focus

Our focus is on clinical epidemiological studies, observational studies and randomized clinical trials in subjects with obesity, prediabetes, gestational diabetes, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. We design and conduct our own studies, but also participate in international multi-center studies, both researcher initiated and studies sponsored by pharmaceutical companies, (phase II-IV studies). Several of our researchers are also engaged in mechanistic studies and translational research in collaboration with different laboratories.
