TREMENDO

Etiology, Prevention and Treatment of Metabolic, Endocrine and Developmental Disorders

TREMENDO is a translational research program that combines preclinical molecular and mouse modeling with human cohort studies. Our aim is to understand the mechanisms and etiology of metabolic, endocrine and developmental disorders, and to develop better means for their treatment and prevention. The focus areas include diverse endocrine tissues, hormone-regulated diseases, obesity, metabolic and cardiovascular disorders, nutrition, and early development and growth.

Chairs: Noora Kotaja (nookot@utu.fi) and Katja Pahkala (katpah@utu.fi)
