Antje Körner Group: "Regulators of adipose tissue development and obesity in children"

Obesity and obesity-related complications are an ever growing socioeconomic burden in the pediatric population. Normal adipose tissue development is critical for maintaining a healthy metabolic and cardiovascular status. An accumulation of adipose tissue mass in childhood or adolescense results in obesity which is often associated with pathological metabolic and cardiovascular alterations. We aim to identify regulators of adipose tissue development and associated complications employing a translational approach by combining pediatric clinical studies and basic scientific research.
