Welcome to the Center for Diabetes research
Our aim is to uncover novel disease mechanisms in diabetes development and to establish tools for differentiating specific subgroups of patients, thus facilitating individualized care.
The center has six principal investigators Professor Stefan Johansson, PhD; Professor Pål R. Njølstad, MD PhD; Professor Valeriya Lyssenko, MD PhD; Professor Simona Chera, PhD; Professor Helge Ræder MD PhD; Professor Anders Molven, PhD.
The main objectives of the group are:
1) Find new genetic risk factors for diabetes and its complications
2) Reveal novel disease mechanisms in diabetes development
3) Develop and implement improved targeted treatment of diabetes.
The Center for Diabetes Research is a collaboration between different groups at the University of Bergen and Haukeland University hospital. We are located at the Children and Youth Hospital building, 6th floor, Block 2, Haukelandsbakken 15, 5021 Bergen, Norway.
