Personal profile


Maria F. Gomez obtained her PhD on the regulation of voltage-dependent calcium channels in smooth muscle at Lund University, Sweden. She then completed post-doctoral studies at The University of Vermont on calcium-dependent transcription in the vasculature.

Currently, she’s Professor of Physiology at the Department of Clinical Sciences in Malmö and coordinator of LUDC (Lund University Diabetes Centre), with some of the best characterized clinical studies in diabetes and ~300 staff members working synergistically towards improved diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diabetes, with the common goal to deliver precision medicine in diabetes.

She also coordinates IMI2 project BEAt-DKD (Biomarker Enterprise Attacking Diabetic Kidney Disease).

The Gomez laboratory focuses on mechanisms leading to diabetic complications with the aim to discover new targetable signaling pathways and develop new medicinal products. Currently, the group works in the following areas:

1) Excitation-transcription coupling and the role of the transcription factor NFAT (Nuclear Factor of Activated T-cells) in the development of vascular complications of diabetes and myocardial dysfunction
2) Novel molecular mechanisms underlying endothelial and kidney dysfunction in diabetes
3) Role of the incretin hormone GIP in the development of diabetic vascular complications
4) Novel animal models of diabetes
