Christa Funch Jensen

PhD Student


During the completion of my Master thesis in Humanbiology 2012 I joined the Danish Arrhythmia Research Center at The University of Copenhagen, investigating the influence of cardiac lipid loading on cardiac function in rats.

This project was part of a larger study, investigating arrhythmias in diabetes and metabolic syndrome. This project is continued through the work of my PhD, during which I am studying the effect of high calorie diets on cardiac physiology including changes in electrical functions and lipid profiles. 

Primary fields of research


I work primarily with diet-induced pre-diabetic rats and how this condition influences the function of the heart. 

Teaching


Teaches skeletal muscle exercises for medical and dental students.
