Lars Grøntved is Associate Professor and research group leader at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. He did postdoctoral training in chromatin biology with Gordon Hager at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, USA. In 2014 he joined the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at SDU as an independent group leader. The Grøntved group aims to understand the underlying mechanisms for the environmental impact on gene transcription and study how the genetic code affects the chromatin structure and the ability to transcriptionally react to the environment. The group primarily use mouse liver tissue as model system and advanced functional genomics technology to study the structural organization of chromatin. Using mechanistic insights from these studies, the group aims to understand how the liver respond to various physiological and pathophysiologic situations such as fast-feeding transitions and diet induced non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.
The Grøntved group is part of the Functional Genomics and Metabolism Research Unit (https://www.sdu.dk/en/forskning/functional-genomics) and DRNF funded Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (https://www.sdu.dk/en/atlas)
