Current research focus

We focus on epidemiological studies, clinical observational studies, randomized clinical trials and translational research in 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).
