The Center for Adipocyte Signaling - ADIPOSIGN is a new center established for a six-year period through a major grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation. It is shared endeavor between The University of Southern Denmark (SDU), MRC LMB, Cambridge, UK and The University of Copenhagen, DK.
The goal is to understand how the signaling states of adipocytes depend on depot, gender and genetic variation, and how changes in these signaling states during development of obesity contribute to the pathophysiological consequences of obesity.
The center involves the following PIs:
Susanne Mandrup, Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark (Director)
Jan-Wilhelm Kornfeld, Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark
