Research Theme

Hormones from the gut are central to the control of appetite and insulin release. Drugs based on the gut hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) have proved highly successful for treating type 2 diabetes, and also suppress food intake. In collaboration with Frank Reimann our group researches how gut hormones are released and their actions on target tissues. We hope this will lead to the development of new drugs or diets that treat diabetes and obesity by targeting gut hormone release.
