” Both chronic non-healing wounds and psoriasis are major and rising health and economic burdens worldwide and lack of effective treatment. Investigation of the role of regulatory RNAs, for example microRNA and long non-coding RNAs, represents an emerging concept, and constitutes a promising area for pharmaceutical intervention. The goal of our laboratory is to unravel the […] ”

” Hormones, growth factors and inflammatory signals control cellular functions by the regulation of intra cellular signals – in many cases such signals are changed in metabolic disturbances e.g. diabetes, in growth and in immunological disorders. At the Unit for Molecular Endocrinology we seek to understand how hormones /differentiation related signals contribute to the above mentioned […] ”

” The growth plate presents a model for cellular differentiation and our research seeks to understand the molecular explanation for the tightly controlled cell function in the growth plate. This information will be of value both as a basis to understand cell differentiation per se but also to gain information on cartilage related disorders. Initial studies […] ”

” Fat and muscle cells derive from the same stem cell and it is possible that stem cells may future targets for therapy. In on-going to studies we seek to determine the role of selected genes in the balance between fat and muscle cell formation. The hypothesis is that imbalances exits at this level of relevance […] ”

” THE JAK-STAT-SOCS PATHWAY. This signalling pathway takes part in metabolic regulation as well as in growth and inflammation. On-going research is focused upon SOCS, a suppressor of the pathway. Attempts are made to better place the SOCS system in relation to diabetes, prostate growth and inflammation. The approach taken involves functional effects of SOCS including […] ”

” Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and pre-diabetic conditions are common medical problems and the incidence of these conditions is rising world-wide. In fact, some countries report that more than 30% of the population is affected by metabolic disorders, several of which have the feature of impaired insulin sensitivity. The first line treatment for impaired insulin sensitivity […] ”
