Focus of work

Susanne Mandrup is Director of the Center of Excellence in Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity ( and the Center of Adipocyte Signaling ( and heads the Functional Genomics and Metabolism Research Unit ( Her own group ( focuses on understanding the transcriptional networks regulating lineage determination and differentiation of adipocyte progenitors and the functioning and plasticity of cells in the adipose tissue and endocrine pancreas. The group combines genome-wide studies with detailed molecular analyses in cell culture and analyses of specific cell types in mouse models.
