Nutrient Transport and Metabolism group - NTaM

Using translational research model systems ranging from isolated organelles to cells to mice, rats, sheep and humans coupled with state of the art as well as classical biochemical and molecular biology methods our long-term aim is to mimic, understand and treat or prevent adverse human conditions and disease.

Transport and metabolism of nutrients is an essential part of any organism and understanding how changes in nutrient transport and metabolism can lead to long lasting positive or negative effects in nutrient homeostasis and dynamics at the whole body, organ, and cellular level is of utmost importance in a variety of human diseases.
