Own research projects

OP_21 GEMINAKAR II - Sleep, work and their consequences for human metabolic disorders, The primary goal of this project is to promote the creation of networks and collaboration between the universities and the university hospitals in the region of Southern Denmark and Schleswig KERN, with help from a research project concerning sleep, work and nutrition and their influence on the metabolism and metabolic diseases. The conditions for such a project is particularly good in this region because of the presence of the Danish Twin Register in Odense and Abteilung für Humanbiologie, a research group for biological rytmes in Kiel. The secondary goal is to promote the creation of networks and collaborations between researchers, public and private institutions and companies in order to strengthen the flow of knowledge between these parties; this will enable them to initiate the development of preventive measures against metabolic disorders in the workforce.
