Prof Christian Wolfrum
Christian Wolfrum is a Professor in the department of Health Sciences and Technology at ETH Zurich. The main interest of the research group is the understanding of molecular mechanisms regulating adipocyte formation and activity. The lab uses a translational approach from mice to men to elucidate the molecular mechanisms, which are the underlying cause of altered adipocyte formation and activity in different models of obesity associated metabolic disorders. Special emphasis is given to the analysis of gene expression, posttranslational modifications and lipid species in mice models and human patients.
