Nature Review by Rauch & Mandrup
In this new review Asst. Prof. Alexander Rauch and Professor Susanne Mandrup review recent advances in the understanding of the transcriptional networks driving stromal cell lineage determination and differentiation.

Publication in Cell Metabolism
Using single-nucleus RNA-seq, we show in a collaborative study with the Madsen Group that diet-induced obesity in male mice leads to major transcriptional changes in all cell types in epididymal adipose tissue. We find that in vivo adipocyte differentiation is affected by obesity and demonstrate the existence of three adipocyte subpopulations, one of which is lost in obesity.

Publication in Nature Genetics
Using enhancer capture Hi-C during the differentiation of human MSCs, Madsen et al. show that highly connected enhancers communities act as key drivers of lineage-specific gene programs.

MSc student receives PhD Scholarship from DDA
MSc Student Ellen Gammelmark is one of seven students that have received a PhD Scholarship from the Danish Diabetes Academy. In here PhD project Ellen will study adipose tissue plasticity and cellular crosstalk at single-cell resolution during regression of obesity.
SDU closed 12/3-10/5 2020

ENHPATHY - Molecular basis of human enhanceropathies
ENHPATHY is a multidisciplinary science consortium created in the frame of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (MSCA)-ITN-ETN European Training Networks call and regrouping 15 academic and 9 non-academic European organisations in the continuum of basic, translational and clinical research on enhancers and associated diseases. Head of unit, Professor Susanne Mandrup is a part of the multidisciplinary consortium.
Fuhrmann Foundation Grant
Great news for two of Prof. Susanne Mandrups Master students. Altogether they received 63.550,- DKK from the Fuhrmann Foundation to support their project: Ellen Gammelmark: “Studying Obesity-Induced Changes in Gene Expression in Mature Adipocytes within Their Tissue Context” and Kaja Madsen: “Investigation of the PPARG2 enhancer network in mesenchymal stem cell differentiation by pairwise enhancer deletion”.
Novo Scholarship program
Student Lena Larsen has been granted 70.000 DKK from September 2020. The grant will support her project "Changes in Human Adipose Tissue Cellular Composition During Obesity" where she expect to gain novel insight into how obesity affects the function and the interplay between the cell types in human visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue.
