Nicolai Jacob Wewer Albrechtsen
Section for Translational Metabolic Physiology
My primary interest: Translational medicine focusing on the gastrointestinal tract and diabetes/obesity e.g. the gut-brain axis
Assesment of hormones secreted from the gut (GLP-1, Neurotensin, and Oxyntomodulin) upon nutrients stimulation is one of my high priority - developing new methods for measurement and linking them in a clinical context.
In addtion, I am working with mass-spectrometry based proteomics focusing on low-abundant peptides in human plasma and linking them into a clinical context.
