Fredrik Karpe, Professor of Metabolic Medicine, Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism
Professor Karpe's laboratory works on human adipose tissue function and the effect of obesity on metabolism. The group is interested in the links between diabetes and cardiovascular disease and upper/lower body obesity. The group aims to clarify mechanisms behind the protection which lower body adipose tissue seems to confer, and the detrimental effect of visceral adipose tissue, by studying the tissues at both cellular and whole body Level.
