http://www.rudolf-virchow-zentrum.de/en/research/research-groups/sumara-group/research.html

The main aim of our laboratory is to understand the cross-talk of different classes of signaling molecules in regulation of metabolic homeostasis. We are especially interested in unraveling novel signaling modules promoting adipose tissue and liver dysfunction as well as metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes.

Ambitious projects are available to investigate the impact of hormonally evoked signaling cascades on different aspects of metabolism using genetic, biochemical and high-throughput screening approaches.

The Rudolf Virchow Center is one of the best German basic research institutes focused on understanding biological mechanisms at the molecular, cellular and organism level and offers state-of-the-art research facilities and a vibrant, international scientific community:
