Professor Fredrik Karpe - Adipose tissue function


Tuesday June 20, 2017

Runde Auditorium
Domus Medica

Fredrik Karpe, Professor of Metabolic Medicine, Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism

Professor Karpe's laboratory works on human adipose tissue function and the effect of obesity on metabolism. The group is interested in the links between diabetes and cardiovascular disease and upper/lower body obesity.
