Professor

I was appointed full professor Human and Animal Physiology in 2008. I am a molecular/ biochemical physiologist with a strong interest in in vivo metabolic pathways; how these are altered with age and in chronic metabolic diseases and how they are affected by food components. Focusing on mitochondria, substrate metabolism and redox metabolism in humans, model animals and cells, I try to decipher the molecular and biochemical processes underlying physiological functioning, health and disease.
