Research area

  • Womens’ health and disease

    I conduct research in basic pathophysiology in women who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and investigate if it’s possible to prevent these women from developing type 2 diabetes.
  • Children’s health and disease

    I conduct research in the development of type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, overweight and the composition of bacterias in the gut in children in higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes due to their exposition from the mother with gestational diabetes.
  • Comparing of two different insulin pharmaceuticals

    I am helping on an industry-sponsored trial, where they compare two insulin pharmaceuticals regarding episodes with low blood glucose.
